See Robert Downey jr transformed into Balding Redhead for new character

We all know Robert Downey jr is an actor of many talents. And now we’re getting a sneak peak look at his latest work on a new HBO series, The Sympathizer.

The historical drama-thriller follows a half-French, half-Vietnamese man (Hoa Xuande) who was a spy for Communist forces during the Vietnam War. Sandra Oh also appears in the series, which is based on author Viet Thanh Nguyen’s 2015 book of the same name.

In addition to the pics below, there’s a great video of RDJ telling his kids to help shave his head for the role.
