If you are a fan of Sebastian Stan, then get ready to be shocked by what the actor is going to do in his upcoming movie ‘A Different Man’. After transforming into Tommy Lee Jones early this year for ‘Pam & Tommy’, the actor has reinvented himself for his next role and looks completely unrecognizable in A24’s upcoming indie drama.

The actor took to Instagram and shared a picture on his official account in which his face can be seen covered in prosthetics as he is set to play the role of a man suffering neurofibromatosis who undergoes facial reconstructive surgery, only to become obsessed with an actor starring as him in a play based on his life. Stan’s character name is Edward.
While sharing the photo, Stan revealed that the credit of such extraordinary transformation goes to Mike Marino, a popular makeup artist who is known for transforming Colin Farrell into The Penguin for Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’. His additional credits include “Coming 2 America,” “The Irishman” and “Joker,” among other films.

Type 1 can cause bone deformities, learning disabilities and high blood pressure. Meanwhile, Type 2 can cause hearing loss, vision loss and difficulty with balance. Type 3 can cause chronic pain throughout the body.

As far as the movie is concerned, the film also stars Renate Reinsve in a pivotal role. Other actors to feature in the movie include Lawrence Arancio, Neal Davidson, and Juney Smith. Meanwhile, the film is produced by Stan, Christine Vachon, Gabriel Mayers , Vanessa McDonnell, and Jason Reif.
