A little too much Bacon fat? Kevin Bacon shocked fans on Monday, May 4, when he Instagrammed a selfie of his unrecognizable face on set. 

“Greetings from the UK!” he captioned the shot of his bloated, significantly fuller face.

Unless The Following star, 56, got stung by a particularly nasty bee, he’s wearing thick makeup (and a few extra chins!).

It’s unclear what project this new look is for. Bacon has completed filming for this season of his Fox drama and his two upcoming films (in which he apparently looks like himself), 6 Miranda Drive and Black Mass.

The Following has neither been renewed nor cancelled for a fourth season, so perhaps there’s a Funny or Die sketch in Bacon’s future?
