Robert Pattinson is looking even more like a vampire with his dark new 'do, a hairstyle he has adopted for an upcoming film role.

The former 'Twilight' actor dyed his brown locks jet black in order to play photographer Dennis Stock in the upcoming film 'Life.' Pattinson also shaved off his goatee and re-styled his hair -- which is now parted on the side -- for the role. Though the actor has left his Edward Cullen days behind him, we think that the contrast between his new dark style and his pale skin make Pattinson look more vampiric than ever.

'Life' tells the story of Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock and his friendship with James Dean, who will be portrayed by Dane DeHaan. Filming has kicked off in Toronto, Canada, where Pattinson (and his brand-new look) were photographed caught in the snow.
