“Say Goodbye to this hair... You'll see. Tomorrow,” he wrote along with a head shot before chopping off his brunette locks.

For his final look, the "Of Mice and Men" Broadway actor sported a fake mustache and Gucci sunglasses, with nothing covering his hair-free dome. Chances are this dramatic look is for a new role. The Oscar nominee is currently filming leading roles in "The Adderall Diaries" with Amber Heard and "True Blood"’s Jim Parrack, and Michael, where he will play a former gay rights activist who becomes a Christian pastor alongside "Palo Alto" costar Emma Roberts
