is ready for liftoff, buzz cut and all.
The First Man
star was spotted on set of the upcoming Neil Armstrong
biopic on Wednesday, rocking a markedly shorter hairdo in the style of the iconic astronaut, who became the first human to set foot on the moon in 1969. Armstrong died in 2012.
The film, which reunites Gosling with La La Landdirector Damien Chazelle
, is set to premiere Oct. 12, 2018, and also stars Clare Foy, Jon Bernthal
and Corey Stoll
, who will portray Buzz Aldrin
Gosling was quite a trouper, too. Despite shooting a hot, sunny summer scene, the actual temperature in Atlanta, Georgia, where the movie is being filmed, is 28 degrees! The 37-year-old actor had a bathrobe and a hot water bottle to keep warm between takes.
The movie has been shooting since October, when Gosling was spotted channeling Armstrong -- with longer hair -- while showing off his lasso skills.
