Hugh Jackman Shows Off Bald & Bearded Look in Joe Wright's 'Pan'
Besides having the trademark mutton chops and hair as Wolverine in all of the X-Men films, Hugh Jackman doesn't usually have to drastically change the style of his hair, both on his head and on his face. Les Miserables required a drastic transformation, but otherwise, he's mostly looked like himself. Now Jackman has shown off a new bald and bearded look as the villain Blackbeard in Pan, the new adaptation of J.M. Barrie's classic fantasy adventure from director Joe Wright. Jackman had a full head of hair at the Tony awards last weekend, but now he has a clean-shaven head. Or maybe it's a really good bald cap. Look!
Here's a first look at Hugh Jackman's look in Joe Wright's Pan from the actor's Instagram:
Pan is directed by Joe Wright (Atonement, Anna Karenina, Hanna) and written by Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift). Based on J.M. Barrie's classic, the film tells the story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland. There, he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny -- to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan. Newcomer Levi Miller plays the title hero with Garrett Hedlund as Hook and Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard. Amanda Seyfried, Rooney Mara and more also star in the film which Warner Bros. Pictures has already slated for release July 17th, 2015 next summer.
