Heist lovers are definitely aware of the Oceans franchise, especially its most successful installment, Ocean’s Eleven. Inspired by the 1960 film Ocean’s 11, the film follows a team of criminals in their attempt to pull off the crime of the century: robbing three of Las Vegas’s biggest casinos in one night.

One of the things that made the trilogy so successful was its impressive cast, starring major names like George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Julia Roberts. As the massive ensemble made schemes and tried to stay out of trouble, audiences eagerly watched to see if they would get out of it or wind up in jail.

The movie’s success spawned two sequels, as well as an all-female spin-off. Luckily for fans of the franchise, Ocean’s ElevenOcean’s Twelve, and Ocean’s Thirteen are now all streaming on Max.

How old was George Clooney in Ocean’s Eleven?

How old was Brad Pitt in Ocean’s Eleven?

How old was Matt Damon in Ocean’s Eleven?

In 2023, Damon has continued to have prominent roles in major films, including leading Air as Sonny Vaccaro and playing Leslie Groves in Oppenheimer. He is now 52 years old.

How old was Andy Garcia in Ocean’s Eleven?

Andy Garcia was 44 when filming began for Ocean’s Eleven, sticking with the role of Terry Benedict for another seven years until Ocean’s Thirteen was released in 2007.

At 67, he is still taking on new roles, including starring with Gloria Estefan in the 2022 version of Father of the Bride.

How old was Julia Roberts in Ocean’s Eleven?

Julia Roberts was already well-established in the film industry by the time she joined the Ocean’s franchise in 2001. She was 33 when filming began, and she had turned 37 by the time the sequel was released. Though Roberts was not in the final installment of the trilogy, she had some excellent scenes across the first two movies, including a scene where her character, Tess Ocean, impersonated the ‘real’ Julia Roberts.

How old was Don Cheadle in Ocean’s Eleven?

Now, Cheadle is 58 years old. Alongside his performances in the Marcel Cinematic Universe, he is currently the narrator for the reimagined version of The Wonder Years.

How old was Casey Affleck in Ocean’s Eleven?

Casey Affleck and Matt Damon have a long history together, which makes it no surprise that Affleck, at only 25, was cast for the role of Virgil Malloy. He turned 26 by the time Ocean’s Eleven premiered, before continuing with the franchise for another six years.

Although not as well-known as his older brother Ben, Casey Affleck has done well for himself in the later stages of his career. As one example, the actor—soon to be 48—played the role of Boris Pash in the biographical thriller Oppenheimer.

How old was Scott Caan in Ocean’s Eleven?

Scott Caan was cast as Turk Malloy, the brother of Casey Affleck’s character. Fittingly, they were very similar ages during the Ocean’s franchise. Caan was 24 when filming began, turning 25 by the time Ocean’s Eleven was released. He was 30 when Ocean’s Thirteen came out.

While Caan has a smaller filmography than other members of the cast, he took on the iconic role of Danny Williams in Hawaii-Five-0, which has currently run for 240 episodes. On August 23 of this year, Caan will be 47 years old.

How old was Elliott Gould in Ocean’s Eleven?

Elliott Gould was already 62 years old when filming began on Ocean’s Eleven, which puts him as one of the oldest members of the cast. Even so, he is actually one of only two actors to be in all four Ocean’s movies. When Ocean’s 8 was released in June 2018, Gould was 79.

Gould played Danny’s financier, Reuben Tishkoff, across all four films, but he has had some difficulty leading a new franchise. While he has been cast in main roles in television series like Doubt and 9JKL, they haven’t made it past one season. Most recently, the almost 85-year-old appeared in Lincoln Lawyer as Legal Siegal, a role that he has been very successful in.

How old was Bernie Mac in Ocean’s Eleven?

Bernie Mac played Frank Catton in the Ocean’s trilogy, which he was a part of from the ages of 43 to 49. The con man never had much of a character arc, but he was a critical part of the series’ many heists.

Sadly, Mac passed away at 50 years old on August 9, 2008, just over a year after Ocean’s Thirteen premiered. He remained busy in his last few years, despite struggling against sarcoidosis, which resulted in three of his movies coming out posthumously: Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, Soul Men, and Old Dogs.

How old was Eddie Jemison in Ocean’s Eleven?

Eddie Jemison played Livingston Dell, a technological expert who helped the team get through different surveillance systems. He was 37 when production began on the film, ultimately staying in the role through Ocean’s Thirteen, when he was 43.

Now, Jemison is 59, turning 60 in November. His most recent project included playing Buster in Jordan Peel’s alien horror Nope. Along with that, he is known for his recurring roles as Stacey Boss in iZombie and Stanley Stohl in Chicago Med.

How old was Carl Reiner in Ocean’s Eleven?

Carl Reiner was the oldest member of Ocean’s Eleven‘s main cast, at 78 and 79 years old during filming. Even so, he stuck with the role in all three main films, as well as filming a cut cameo in Ocean’s 8. Had his cameo remained, he would have continued in his role as Saul Bloom until he was 95.

Unfortunately, Reiner’s cameo was removed from the final film, which cut down on his filmography in his later years. Reiner died at 98 years old in 2020, with his last film role being Carl Reineroceros in Toy Story 4.

How old was Qin Shaobo in Ocean’s Eleven?

Qin Shaobo played the Amazing Yen, an acrobat whose physical abilities helped him maneuver through traps and surveillance systems. This was Shaobo’s cinematic debut when he was only 19 years old.

Despite being a successful acrobat and contortionist, Shaobo didn’t have a film career outside the Ocean’s films. He did appear in all three sequels, including Ocean’s 8, but has never been cast in any other movies. Because of this, we don’t have much information about him, only knowing that he is now in his early 40s.

How old was Michael DeLano in Ocean’s Eleven?

Although Michael DeLano had a successful acting career in the 70s through the 90s, his main claim to fame is his role as casino manager Walsh in the Ocean’s franchise. He took on the role at 60, playing Walsh until Ocean’s Thirteen was released in 2007.

He is now 82, and unlike most of his cast mates, he largely retired from the entertainment industry. His last acting job was in 2012, when he played a casino host in Royal Pains. Despite the trilogy only taking up six years of his life, it defined him in pop culture for good.

How old was Scott L. Schwartz in Ocean’s Eleven?

Scott L. Schwartz joined the cast of Ocean’s Eleven at 41 years old, turning 42 by the time the film premiered. He played Bruiser, a minor character who popped up in all three movies. He was 48 by the time the trilogy was fully released.

Schwartz continued in the entertainment field with acting and stunt performing until 2021, when he played Seth in The Pizza Joint. However, that is only a side gig, as he is also a reserve deputy in Los Angeles. Schwartz is now 64.

How old was Jerry Weintraub in Ocean’s Eleven?

Jerry Weintraub is the final member of the Ocean’s Eleven cast to be in all three movies, although he had different roles in each. Primarily known as a producer (and as the producer for the Ocean’s films in particular), Weintraub had a cameo appearance in Ocean’s Eleven when he was 64. He then had cameos in the next two films at 67 and 69 years old, respectively.

While these were very minor roles, his presence is important to cameo spotters. He passed away at age 77 in 2015, which prevented him from appearing in Ocean‘s 8, but he was given a memorial in the spin-off.

The entire Ocean’s trilogy is now streaming on Max.
