How Old Is the Cast of Netflix's The Politician in Real Life? Let's Break It Down
The cast of Ryan Murphy's new Netflix comedy The Politician is packed with talent from Hollywood and Broadway alike. Led by Tony winner Ben Platt and costarring Hollywood A-listers such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Lange, the show revolves around an ambitious, gay high school student who is determined to become president someday. The first season takes place during his high school years, but as you might have guessed, even the actors playing high school students are well out of their teens.
