Anyone else distracted by Eddie's age?

This is spoiler-free, by the way! (I'm still not even done yet, so trying to avoid all the spoilers!)

So, I know Eddie is supposed to be a super senior, but I'm super distracted by just how old he looks. The actor who plays him, Joe Quinn, does a great job, but he's 29! I just keep thinking... why is this 40-year-old man hanging out with the youths?
