    When asked if the new look was for a role, Chris answered, "Maybe," before also saying, "It's mostly laziness." So who knows!

    "This is my Gregg Allman '70s look," he joked, referring to the late rocker. "My publicist said I look like a Bee Gee, but I prefer Gregg Allman."

    Either way, he's been trying out the new look for a minute now. Here he is in November of last year, holding a cup of joe while sporting his new beard.
