You Do The Math

George Clooney was born in 1961 and, thus, will be 50 years old this year.

A 50-year-old Man

Bob Dylan was born in 1941 and, accordingly, will be 70 years old this year.

A 70-year-old Man

The average of 50 and 70 is 60. A man born in 1951 -- a 60 year old man -- is therefore an average of George Clooney and Bob Dylan.
