Sean Penn is dressing the part! The too-cool actor put on the big hair and the guy-liner for his role as a washed up rocker in This Must Be the Place.

In the movie, Sean stars alongside actress Frances McDormand (Burn After Reading, Almost Famous) as a retired musician named Cheyenne who sets out to find an ex-Nazi war criminal living in the United States. Sean, unlike his dark real-life persona, plays a gentle, likable character that seems to see the world differently, while Frances plays Jane, Cheyenne’s best friend. The crime drama is supposed to hit theaters some time this year but Celebuzz has your first look at a scene from the movie that popped up on the Internet. 

Sean has been promoting another one of his films out at the Cannes Film Festival.

 The actor is in the highly anticipated movie Tree of Life that also stars another Hollywood heavyweight, Brad Pitt. According to reports, the crowd in France was not so receptive to the film.

Entertainment Weekly reports that the film got mixed reviews during it’s first screening at Cannes, being welcomed with both an applause and some boos. According to EW onlookers, people fought their way into the screening to see the highly anticipated film, but some were not so pleased with what they saw.  Regardless of the response, Pitt still spoke to the press, saying of the film and the always elusive director Terrence Malick(who hasn’t spoken to the press at all during Cannes):

“He tells this micro story of this family in a small town in Texas and juxtaposes it with the macro of the birth of the cosmos and cells splitting. I find that so extraordinary. There are parallel truths in that.”

Tree of Life hits theaters May 27 nationwide.
