James Franco Shaves Head For Upcoming Film 'Zeroville'

Posted: Updated:

Attention, James Franco fans of the world: one of your favorite actors is officially bald.

The 36-year-old took to Instagram on Thursday, Sept. 4, to share a picture of his newly shaved head:

The snap's caption, which reads "'Zeroville' Glasses by Gooch @gucci," suggests Franco ditched his locks for the upcoming movie adaptation of Steve Erickson's 2007 novel of the same name. The actor will play lead character Ike “Vikar” Jerome, a film-obsessed man navigating Hollywood in the 1970's. According to Variety, Franco optioned the film rights to the novel in 2011 with the intent to direct.

Vikar, of course, sports a shaved head, on which he has a tattoo of classic actors Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor.
