Rick Springfield, is that you?
For his new guest starring role on the hit HBO crime drama True Detective, the 65-year-old singer chopped off his normally long hair to portray the mysterious Doctor Pitlor — and the star looks almost unrecognizable with the new 'do!

“Before the show’s hairstylist clipped off five or six inches of my hair she said to me, ‘You know someone could make a lot of money from these clippings…’ After laughing that off, I thought perhaps we could raise some money for a worthy cause," Rick said in a statement.
The "Jessie's Girl" singer has since teamed up with IfOnly.com, an online platform that raises funds for charity, to sell his locks, as well as two autographed guitars and a pair of signed shoes! All proceeds raised from the sale will benefit Linda Blair’s Worldheart Foundation, which saves, shelters and finds homes for hundreds of homeless dogs in need.
“Welcome to the loving soul of Rick Springfield,” Linda Blair said in a statement. “Our dogs at Linda Blair Worldheart in California are wagging their tails to the beat of all of this heart pounding love coming their way from this special auction site!”
