Hugh Jackman got into character for his new role in "Pan," the Joe Wright-directed update of the classic fairytale. Jackman was cast as Blackbeard, and by the looks of his latest Instagram, he's ready to make someone walk the plank. Just a few days after he hosted the Tony Awards, Jackman now sports a bald head and beard for the role. "Blackbeard is born. #PAN," he wrote.

At the time Jackman's casting was announced, Warner Bros. president Greg Silverman said, "We know he will create a Blackbeard who will be a powerful presence in this original Peter Pan adventure." Written by Jason Fuchs, "Pan" also stars Amanda Seyfried, Rooney Mara, Levi Miller and Garrett Hedlund.
