The actor and Oscar-winning producer, 52, is sporting the lightened hair for his role as Stanley McChrystal. Just like the real-life general, Pitt wears his blond-based crop trim and parted to one side.

Pitt, who shares six children with his wife, Angelina Jolie, gets into character thanks to serious military threads, including a camouflage jacket and pants, and a tee with leg-flaunting short shorts.

The Fury actor plays the top U.S. army general in the satirical war film, which is inspired by Michael Hastings' bestselling book The Operators, about the war in Afghanistan circa 2010. (The film also stars Topher Grace and Anthony Michael Hall.)

It's all a huge change from the Pitt we saw at the 2016 Golden Globes! Though he worked the gray in October, he returned to his natural sun-kissed brunette for the ceremony, which, with his tuxedo, gave him an especially youthful air.
