Nicolas Cage is sporting a new hairless look in the first image from his new movie Butcher's Crossing.
Currently shooting in Montana, the iconic Hollywood actor is portraying a buffalo hunter called Miller in director Gabe Polsky's western.

Nicolas Cage looks to be giving audiences another fun character to add to his long list of iconic roles https://t.co/AaNDU8or8i

The action centres on a young Harvard dropout who heads west to join a team of buffalo hunters led by Miller. Together, they set off on a dangerous journey risking their life and their sanity.
Disintegrating sanity? Standard Cage fare then.
Cage was most recently seen on screen in the acclaimed Pig, in which he plays a reclusive truffle forager forced to return to the city to find his prized pig when it's stolen from him.
He also appears in this year's Prisoners of the Ghostland, alongside The Mummy and Kingsman star Sofia Boutella.
In separate news, the Oscar winner previously explained why he won't bother watching next year's meta-comedy The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, which will see him play an exaggerated version of himself, forced to re-enact some of his best-known roles to save himself and his loved ones.
"I'm never going to see that movie," he declared. "I'm told it's a good movie. My manager Mike Nilon, who is also a producer on it, looked at it. He was very happy. I'm told the audience loved the movie.
"But it's just too much of a whacked-out trip for me to go to a movie theater and watch me play [director] Tom Gormican's highly neurotic, anxiety-ridden version of me. Because he kept pushing me in that direction.
"I won't see it. But I do hope you enjoy it."
The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent arrives in cinemas April 2022.
