James Franco has waved goodbye to his hair and, being James Franco, he documented the process for us all the see over Instagram!

The actor shaved off his luscious locks for the sake of his upcoming movie, Zeroville and you can check out the transformation in the before and after pics below;

Zeroville is adapted from a critically acclaimed novel by Steve Erickson that goes by the same name.

In the upcoming movie, Franco will play 24-year-old student Vikar who shows up in Hollywood in 1969 and attempts to make it in the movie biz.

The skinhead isn't the only transformation that Franco has had to to undergo to embody the character though. Vikar also happens to have a tattoo of Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Cliff on the back of his head, but thankfully Franco went for a more temporary solution...

The actor posted a picture of his makeup artist painstakingly drawing on the 'tattoo'...

...Before showing off the results while filming in Venice the following day.

I can't wait to hear more about this film, I'm totally intrigued by the main character by these pics alone. I might even have to get my grubby mitts on the book!
