Ewan McGregor

Turns to the Dark Side

5/23/2013 12:15 AM PDT BY Johnny Lopez

0522_ewan_mcgregor_x17Doing his best Freddie Mercury impersonation, former ginger star Ewan McGregor was almost unrecognizable in West Hollywood on Tuesday.

Decked out in a new jet black 'do, '70s porn stache and leather gear, the 42-year-old Scottish hunk showed off his tough new persona after leaving a salon.

The makeover is for the new indie western flick "Jane Got a Gun," which he's working on with Natalie Portman ... his co-star in the "Star Wars" prequel trilogy.

Obi-Wan Kenobi has finally fallen to the dark side.

Freddie Mercury? Hell no. He looks much more like Frank Zappa.

Hunk? Maybe 15 years ago in a late-90's alt-rocker kind of way.

I hope he looks better on film than he does here. He looks downright pornish. The name of the film is "Jane Got a Gun." Yep, pornish.

More "gay bar persona" than "tough guy" :)

I'd be walking around in disguise too if I had Star Wars: The Phantom Menace on my résumé.

Pffft. Sam Rockwell does a way better impersonation of Freddie. Watch him in Heist (2001).

He looks like Jim Carrey's character in The Cable Guy when he puts on that mustache.
