I thought about this too, but they could still have an older and a younger actor.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes: Another movie I didn't like much. Too many plot holes. Apes were badly done (CGI was great but they were not apelike at all, not even before the change when they really should be). Why did they jump through closed windows without getting hurt? Also whoever wrote the script confused intelligence with general physical abilities and experience-based skills. At first they are apes, after the virus they're furry supermen. Meh.
I'm also tired of people claiming Serkis deserves an award for this one. For what, playing a computer-generated character? Give me a break.
