UPDATE: Ben Affleck Tries a New Do

Ben Affleck's new hairGSI Media

He’s a doting dad, a husband and a successful producer, but Ben Affleck is showing he can still be young and hip despite his mature demeanor. The actor traded in his signature dad look for some longer, flat-ironed locks — but his rep tells PEOPLE that the change is for his role in the new movie Argo. But Affleck is figuring out how to work the look in real life, pairing the hipster-esque hair with a striped shirt, cotton trousers and trainers while out in Santa Monica over the weekend. He’s not the first male star to try straight, long locks: Zac Efron is know for this slicked-down look; Pete Wentz once dabbled in the straight hair trend; and let’s not forget Justin Bieber, the godfather of flat-ironed hair. Since the change is just temporary for Affleck, maybe we’ll see him return to the more tousled style he worked earlier this month. Regardless, we wonder what wife Jennifer Garner thinks about his new look! Tell us: What do you think of Affleck’s new do?Kim Peiffer

He looks almost exactly like Bill from True Blood.

It just isn’t working on him and it looks kinda greasy…Yick!

He looks horrid! What a horrible looking lacefront wig. He looks like a vampire in the True Blood series. I mean really Ben?? Be proud of your bald receeding hairline.

I look at this picture and think Jon Hamm for some reason. Glad its for a movie role and only temporary as it doesn’t suit him AT ALL.

Seriously…Who cares!!!

He looks like Dean McDermont, Tori Spellings worse half.

He looks like Tony Robbins

Looks hot! Has anyone noticed how the guy hasnt smiled once since he broke up with J Lo?? I’m hoping they can rekindle their romance. They should have stayed together. And they’ve both seemed unhappy ever since. Maybe he’s trying to reinvent himself now that she’s back on the market. I LOVE how it looks!

Dan on

Who cares what this guy’s hair looks like? Are people really concerned and upset about a haircut?
