Neither golf nor pool counts (or bowling). They are not real sports. Moreover, the list is limited to professional sporting events.

1. Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa, Real Age 60
2. Mickey Rourke, The Wrestler, Real Age 57
3. Paul Newman, Slap Shot, Real Age 52
4. Dennis Quaid, The Rookie, Real Age 48
5. Robert Redford, The Natural -- real Age 48
6. Michael Caine, Victory, -- Real Age 48
7. George Clooney, Leatherheads -- Real Age 47
8. Tom Selleck, Mr. Baseball, -- Real Age 47
9. Dennis Quad, Any Given Sunday -- Real Age 45
10. Tom Berenger, Major League II, -- Real Age 45

(Note: I am not passing judgment on the performances of any of these actors or suggesting that they were inappropriately cast. I am merely noting -- for posterity -- the ten oldest actors (to my knowledge) to play a professional sport in a film.)
