Perry, who played Dylan McKay on the 1990s series, hit his milestone birthday on Oct. 11 and AARP responded by tweeting the image of its "special birthday cover" featuring Perry.
Though Perry was well into his 20s when the show began in 1990, fans still had a hard time believing the actor is now a half a century old.
