Actor Tom Selleck has not only ditched his signature mustache for his movie role as former American president General DWIGHT EISENHOWER, he's also shaving his head.

The former MAGNUM PI star had denied he was going to change his trademark looks for the role, but has now reconsidered and decided to go for a complete transformation to play the WORLD WAR II hero.

He says, "I'm halfway there. It's going to be real. I'm going to have a shaved head and thinning hair and dyed hair.

"My approach to the role is that this guy is more dynamic than anybody ever realised. His story was critical to the survival of the free world."
