PHOTO: Hugh Jackman loses his hair for a new role
His luscious locks are gone. Hugh Jackman shows off a new look for his latest film. See the photo.
On Sunday, Hugh Jackman hosted the Tony Awards with lots of razzle-dazzle and a full head of hair. After a day off from his Broadway hosting duties, the Australian actor showed off a new look.
The star shaved his head and styled his beard on Tuesday for a new movie role. Jackman is gearing up to play the pirate Blackbeard in a fresh adaptation of Peter Pan.
He posted his character's look on Instagram and captioned the photo, "Blackbeard is born. #PAN."
Any resemblance to Wolverine is gone as Jackman's clean-shaven head and mustache/goatee combination gives him a totally different look. His sweet face looks a bit more menacing, which is perfect for a pirate.
Not all of his fans were pleased with his look. The comments on Instagram ranged from "You look like the dude from Breaking Bad" to "I miss the Wolverine hair... but still like it." The good news is that hair does grow back.
Pan, set to be released in July 2015, also stars Amanda Seyfried, Rooney Mara and Garrett Hedlund. According to Variety, this is the story of J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan re-imagined by screenwriter Jason Fuchs. The movie takes place during World War II, where an orphan is kidnapped by pirates and brought back to Neverland. It is there that Peter Pan must save Neverland from the notorious Blackbeard.
