(Newser) – Ah, James Franco. Whether he's working behind the camera or in front of it, it's nice to know that his good looks and slick haircut are always—wait, what? Yes, Franco's coif has been cropped. The now-bald star documented the shave—it's for his upcoming film, Zeroville—with before-and-after pics on his Instagram account. Franco took his new look to the Venice Film Festival this week, where he showed off a clip from his latest film, The Sound And The Fury, and received the Glory to the Filmmaker Award. But before the ceremony, Franco turned on the cameras and took the stage in character to shoot a Zeroville scene.
