Mark Wahlberg has a shaved head, and fans are divided

He's not totally bald, but there's not a lot of hair there.

Mark Wahlberg has had a close shave!

A close shave with a hair trimmer, that is: As the "Spenser Confidential" actor revealed on Instagram Thursday, he's decided to go more or less hair-free as we head into summer:

Wahlberg looks buff and is standing in front of a Chevrolet Tahoe next to a man in a beard, but all he has to say about the picture is, "New look."

No kidding!

The extra word in the caption, "@municipal," points us to a sport utility gear and apparel line he co-founded, but that's about all we can learn from this pic.

Commenters, needless to say, have thoughts.

"Oh dear lord, what happened," wrote Scareface197.

"For a sec I thought this was Vin (Diesel)," wrote Maxima_Mac_.

But singer Carnie Wilson was all for it: "Beyond gorgeous."

And Valencia0210 used a lot of fire emojis after writing, "Sooooo handsome."

But most of the comments seemed either thumbs-down, or full of questions: "You good bro?" asked aejon_stargaryen.

This isn't the first time we've seen Wahlberg with the ready-for-the-Army 'do, though: Back when he was Marky Mark in the 1990s, he showed some scalp in teen magazine shots.

Speculation has it that Wahlberg, 49, went super-short for new hush-hush movie role in "Stu" (he recently put on 20 pounds for that role, as he revealed in a May 3 post), which is filming now.

But for now, the hairy situation remains unconfirmed.
