Sean Penn as an Aging Goth Rocker! You’ll Die!


Two-time Oscar winner Sean Penn has played a killer, a gay, and a psycho — all onscreen, that is.

And now he’s stretching his muscles by donning some very vivid makeup and hair design (not to mention wrist jewelry) to play an aging Goth rocker in a movie called This Must Be the Place.

The film is playing at the Cannes festival, but you don’t have to pull out your tongue piercing, pack your Vuitton luggage, and fly all the way there, seeing as I’ve generously provided the above eye-popping photo.

You like? Will Oscar make three?

Will Robin suddenly be desperate to have him back?

And even Madonna?
