In A Different Man, the Marvel star plays the lead character, Edward, an outcast seeking a new life and a fresh start. After he undergoes facial reconstructive surgery, he becomes fixated on a man starring as him in a stage production based on his former life. In addition to Stan, the A24 film is also set to star Renate Reinsve, Adam Pearson, Neal Davidson and Juney Smith. The film is directed by Aaron Schimberg, who also wrote the script. It was previously announced that alongside A24, Christine Vachon and Gabriel Mayers of Killer Films, Vanessa McDonnell of Grand Motel Films and Jason Reif will produce with Stan also executive producing. it's currently unclear when the film will be released.
Stan also took to his Instagram on Wednesday to share a look at his character, calling the work to transform him "incredible" and tagging artist Mike Marino in the image as well (you can check it out for yourself below). Stan has previously shared a photo of himself — without the prosthetics — alongside Pearson and Reinsve in New York City.
His role in A Different Man isn't the first time Stan has had to undergo a transformation for a project. For Hulu's Pam & Tommy, Stan pulled off a different sort of transformation to play rock legend Tommy Lee, though the actor told ET at the time that the real challenge was playing the drums, especially since he himself has no real experience with musical instruments.
"Because I don't play the drums. I don't play any musical instruments," Stan said was the hardest part of portraying Lee. "So, just kind of going at it and learning from scratch was pretty terrifying."
He added, "I guess he was labelled as the greatest drummer in the world, so it just felt like they were big shoes to fill. But I did my best."
A Different Man does not yet have a release date.
