Hair today, gone tomorrow!

James Franco took the plunge and shaved his head to prepare for his latest role in the upcoming film Zeroville, and we can't say this is his best look!

The actor is gearing up to turn the acclaimed 2007 novel into a movie, after buying the rights with the intent to direct. The premise is a 24-year-old student named Vikar who shows up in Hollywood in 1969 with aspirations of making it in the movie business, but he "embarks on a Hollywood journey that ends in both tragedy and discovery."

We can't wait to see how this flick turns out!
