Glee star Chord Overstreet (Sam) has spent much of his hiatus working on some new music, but it turns out that’s not the only thing the 25-year-old actor has produced so far this summer — dude’s sporting some serious facial hair!

Sure, we know that some of the Glee guys like to embrace their inner caveman when the FOX dramedy isn’t shooting, but if you ask us, Chord has taken the “hiatus beard” to a whole new level. On June 20 Chord showed off his new facial hair in a photo he posted to Instagram also featuring his talented pops, Paul Overstreet.

Just jumped in my dad's plane w him... Maybe he'll let me fly. Get ready for some barrel rolls @pauloverstreet,” Chord wrote alongside the father-son snap. Now that we see Chord’s dad, we understand where his facial hair inspiration came from seeing as both Overstreet men are sporting mustaches and beards. The fellas are practically identical, though Chord does seem to have more hair than his singer/songwriter dad.

Sidenote: We can’t get over how cool it is that Chord and his dad go flying together — it’s like every boy’s dream!

But back to Chord’s fuzzy face. He showed off his new uh, pet, again on June 25, and this time the beard/mustache comb is even more prolific than it was before! Still, we’re inclined to forgive the Glee hunk for ignoring his razor because his photo caption has us especially psyched. “Back in the studio writing. I think y'all will like this one! Can't wait for y'all to hear!,” he wrote, guitar in hand.

We mentioned before that Chord has spent a lot of time this summer working on his album, and this is just another hint that new music isn’t far off. Way to go, Chord! Now let’s just hope he finds a razor before Glee Season 6 starts shooting next month…
