Hugh Jackman shaves head for Blackbeard role in Pan

Hugh Jackman posted this photo of himself bald on Twitter. Jackman, who just hosted the 2014 Tony Awards, will play the pirate Blackbeard in the film Pan.

Pan will hit theaters July, 2015. The film also co-stars Amanda Seyfried and Rooney Mara. Garrett Hedlund will be playing Hook. Joe Wright is direction and Jason Fuchs is writing the screenplay.

The role requires a full beard and a shaved head. So, does he look like an evil pirate? We're thinking...yes. It is quite a change from his other characters, such as Wolverine.

Jackman says in a tweet, "Blackbeard is born."
