Two days ago Hugh Jackman was the dapper host of the glitzy Tony Awards - now, he's looking a little rough.

The Australian actor posted a selfie on Instagram showing off a freshly shaved head with a full beard on Wednesday.

The bald look is for the upcoming live-action retelling of Peter Pan, in which the X-Men star will play pirate captain Blackbeard.

"Blackbeard is born. ," Jackman captioned the picture.

Pan will also star Amanda Seyfried, Garrett Hedlund and model Cara Delevingne.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara will play Neverland princess Tiger Lily.

Joe Wright, director of Atonement and Anna Karenina, will direct.

While most of Jackman's Instagram fans seemed to accept his new hairdo as part of the job, some weren't so happy.

"Is he trying the Walter White look or what?", one quipped.

Jackman may be looking like Breaking Bad's Walter White for a little longer - Pan is not slated for release until 2015.
