Ben Affleck Is Looking Shaggy On Set (PHOTOS)

A bearded Ben Affleck is barely recognizable on the set of his latest film "Argo."

Bauer Griffin snapped some photos as he shot scenes for the film in Hollywood on Wednesday. The film takes place during the 1979 Iran hostage crisis, hence the shaggy look and leisure suits, and is already getting some Oscar buzz.

The 39-year-old star is giving directing another try, as he will not only star in the intense flick, but direct it as well. Alan Arkin, Bryan Cranston and John Goodman will join him in front of the camera, while George Clooney will be a part of the behind-the-scenes team.

Check the photos below, showing the '70s styled Affleck on both sides of the lens. For more head over to Bauer Griffin.
