Tom Holland has mixed up his look and shaved his head.
The 23-year-old actor, who is most famous for his role as Marvel’s Spider-Man, has undergone a bold new look by shaving off his locks.
The new look was made public in a video shared by veteran activist Art on Twitter.
The haircut is believed to be for Holland’s leading role in the upcoming film Cherry, which follows an Army medic who turns to crime as he battles PTSD and drug addiction.
Holland is currently shooting the film in Cleveland, which is where Art met the actor. During a break in his filming schedule, Holland took some time to visit veterans at a local clinic.
The actor’s new look may only be temporary — and appropriate for his role as an Army medic — but many of his fans were startled by the change in his appearance.
Twitter users are comparing Holland to everything from cartoon character Caillou to rap artist Eminem.

This isn’t the first time Twitter users have reacted emotionally to an actor’s new look.
First there was the uproar after Kit Harington shaved off his beard — dubbed an “utter travesty” by fans after the look first debuted on Saturday Night Live. The new aesthetic was for a Winston Churchill sketch, Harington explained.
Then Jason Momoa shaved off his own widely coveted beard back in April, in order to raise awareness of the need to use recyclable aluminum cans for water instead of plastic bottles.
