Hugh Jackman looks closer to 25 than he does to 45, but the actor is aging up his look for a role in Warner Bros.’ “Pan.”

With the caption “Blackbeard is born,” Jackman issued the first photo of himself, in which he has a shaved head but is not completely hairless.

The hirsute “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” star does have a full beard and moustache in order to get into the role of the appropriately named pirate.

The talented star was likely holding off on shaving his dome before the Tonys, which he hosted to great acclaim on Sunday.

For “Pan,” Jackman will play Blackbeard in the rebooted Peter Pan saga, which also features Garrett Hedlund as another iconic pirate, Hook.

Amanda Seyfried will play Mary, along with newcomer Levi Miller as the titular Peter Pan and Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily.

“Pan” is coming to theaters next July, which will give anyone on the fence plenty of time to make peace with his new appearance.
