Brad Pitt is going through a big change – but he’s taking it in stages.

The actor, whose beard has been the subject of immeasurable buzz since he started growing it about a year ago, finally trimmed it his facial hair over the weekend – but will have to go the full monty soon.

So what’s prompting him to end the hirsute look? Pitt starts production on his long-awaited film Moneyball in the next few weeks, playing clean-shaven Oakland A’s General Manager Billy Beane.

The movie, which is an adaptation of the best-selling book by Michael Lewis, also stars Jonah Hill, Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Robin Wright.
