    The Midnight Sky: George Clooney sports VERY different look in movie with Felicity Jones

    The Midnight Sky first look: George Clooney sports a VERY different look as he plays a 70-year-old scientist in space movie with Felicity Jones

    George Clooney has a very different look from his usual suave appearance as he transforms into a 70-year-old scientist in his new movie.

    In the first pictures from upcoming Netflix film The Midnight Sky, the actor is seen sporting a long beard and messily shaved head. 

    As well as playing character Augustine Lofthouse, George has directed the post-apocalyptic flick which also stars Felicity Jones and David Oyelowo.

    New role: George Clooney transforms into a 70-year-old scientist with a long beard and messy hair cut who lives on a remote arctic research station in new Netflix movie The Midnight Sky

    George is barely recognisable in a new picture from the set, with the star having a beard and wearing a checked shirt.

    His usually styled locks are also nowhere to be seen. George told Vanity Fair that he shaved his own hair off for the movie, purposely not trying to do a good job. 

    Speaking about the transformation, he joked: ‘I have had a lot of people, the first couple of shots in the movie, not realise it’s me… My wife was very happy when I finished shooting this.’

    The actor also revealed he doesn’t believe he’s keeping his youthful looks as he ages in real life, saying he’s looking closer to his character’s age of 70 than his 59 years. 

    Co-star: Felicity Jones also appears in the film as astronaut Sully, with George revealing that he adapted the movie to build in her real life pregnancy

    Other pictures released by Netflix on Friday also show the Oceans Eleven star working hard behind the camera and his co-stars onboard their space ship. 

    The Midnight Sky follows Augustine (Clooney), a lonely scientist in the Arctic, as he races to stop Sully (Jones) and her fellow astronauts from returning home to a mysterious global catastrophe.

    Sully and her team are on the NASA starship Aether after a journey to explore a moon of Jupiter, with the group discovering it to have a habitable climate.  

    George also revealed that he had to adapt the movie after Felicity told him she was pregnant right after he had started shooting some of his solo scenes.

    He explained how the production team tried to hide her pregnancy on screen by doing two takes of each scene, one with Felicity and one with a body double.

    However this approached soon became very expensive as the team would have to digitally impose the actress’ head onto the double’s frame.   

    George said: ‘We did that for about a week, and then she felt she was trying so hard not to look like she was putting on baby weight and stuff. 

    ‘And I finally just said, “You know what? You’re pregnant. People have sex, and you got pregnant. And we’re going to just build it into it”.’

    This meant that the plot of The Midnight Sky now saw Felicity’s character become pregnant on the return journey to earth. 

    MailOnline exclusively revealed that Felicity had welcomed a baby with her husband Charles Guard earlier in September.

    It is not yet known when exactly the actress gave birth. The baby’s gender and name have also yet to be publicly revealed.   

    Touching on the current situation in his interview, George explained he finished filming the film in February before restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

    However he acknowledged the plot may be a little eery for some, saying that although it is ‘science fiction’, things are becoming ‘less fictional’ as time goes on. 

    The Midnight Sky, which also stars David Oyelowo, Kyle Chandler, Demián Bichir and Tiffany Boone, is set for release on Netflix this December.
