Frank Grillo isn't 50 yet -- he just turned 49 earlier this month -- but the Internet, led by IMDb and Wikipedia, has aged him by two years ... and Grillo seems resigned to this fact. It's almost fitting: Grillo, who has been acting for over 20 years, but is just now starting to become a household name thanks to 'Captain America 2' and 'The Purge: Anarchy'.
