Brad Pitt's blonde locks are looking a bit intense these days ... or at least for this New York Times Magazine photo shoot.

The 47-year-old Moneyball actor is just one of several stars featured in the mag's "Touch of Evil" spread. The photo shoot represents classic evil characters throughout the history of film. Brad is channeling Eraserhead from David Lynch's 1977 film.

Angelina Jolie's hubby is also starring in a brief video in which he slowly turns to the camera with his mouth opening wide. Yep, pretty creepy!
