Arrrr! Hugh Jackman shaves his head for Blackbeard role

Fans who appreciate Hugh Jackman's dashing leading-man looks have probably been distracted of late by his bushy beard. To help with that, the actor removed his well-coiffed hair from the equation.

Blackbeard is born. #PAN

To prep for his role as Blackbeard in the upcoming film "Pan," Jackman showed off his re-styled pirate beard and clean head in an Instagram post on Tuesday. "Blackbeard is born. #PAN" wrote the 45-year-old actor, who is no stranger to sharing his photos on social media.

Two days ago, Jackman was hosting the Tony Awards from New York's Radio City Music Hall with his hair still intact.
