The first official look at Sebastian Stan in A24’s upcoming film A Different Man is here, and showcases a haunting transformation the actor has undergone.
In a recent post to his official Instagram account, Stan shared a photograph of his character Edward in the film, and he looks nearly unrecognizable. In the photo, the actor is nearly completely covered in prosthetics to look like someone with a deformed face. While the story of the film does revolve around a man who undergoes facial reconstructive surgery, it’s unclear when in the film this picture is from.
A Different Man, which is directed by Aaron Schimberg (Chained for Life), follows Edward, an outcast who is looking for a new life and a fresh start. Following a facial reconstructive surgery procedure, he becomes fixated on a man that is starring as him in a stage production based on his former life. Schimberg is also set to write the film, with production set to begin next month. Alongside Stan, Renate Reinsve (The Worst Person in the World) will also star in the film.
Sebastian Stan is off to a big 2022, as the actor not only earned rave reviews for his portrayal of Tommy Lee in Hulu’s Pam & Tommy miniseries, but he also starred in the Hulu comedy thriller Fresh, a role that earned him further praise for his performance. Up next for the actor is Sharper, a comedy thriller from Benajmin Caron that also stars Julianne Moore, Justice Smith, Briana Middleton, and John Lithgow.
