Celebrity Transformation

James Franco Shaves His Head Completely Bald — See the Dramatic Transformation! (PHOTOS)

James Franco, who surprised us with a bleached 'do in August, made a smooth transition into his next bold look — a very smooth transition.

The actor took to Instagram, showing off his transformation from short brown hair, to a shaved head, to a really shaved head. Opting to go bald as we head into the chillier months? What gives, Jimmy?

Well, the 36-year-old star made the change to get into character for his role as "Vikar" Jerome in Zeroville — a film based on Steve Erickson's 2007 book. James's character, who has tattoos of Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor on the back of his head, is a film-obsessed man who starts a journey into the world of films in Hollywood in the 1970s.
