"I don't want to have to wear a bald cap, so will you guys shave my head?" Robert asked in an Instagram video.

His sons Exton and Avri enthusiastically agreed — and it wasn't long before Robert was totally bald.

Since then, he's stepped out with his new 'do on several occasions and he even made it work with a neon green suit at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony!

The reason behind Robert's new look is his role in The Sympathizer, where he'll be playing quite a few characters who seemingly require different wigs.

The show is set to follow a half-French, half-Vietnamese communist spy during the final days of the Vietnam War and his resulting exile in the United States — and Robert will portray multiple supporting roles as the main antagonist.

His roles will reportedly all represent a different arm of the American establishment including an up-and-coming Orange County congressman, a CIA agent, and a Hollywood film director.
