Ben Affleck used to be as reliably close-cropped as anyone in Hollywood—but it would appear those days are over.

Any discussion about Ben Affleck’s more recent coiffure these days seems to liken his man-mop to Justin Bieber’s, inferring that the 39-year-old A-list actor/director/father of three is taking style advice from a barely pubescent half-pint crooner (who, incidentally, is no longer rocking his own haircut).

In actuality, Mr. Affleck is starring in (and directing) the film Argo, set in 1979 and based on the true story of how the CIA used a fake sci-fi film to rescue Americans during the Iran hostage crisis—and he’s doing so alongside John Goodman and Alan Arkin. That’s about as un-Bieber as it gets, if you ask us.

Here are a few photos from the set…
