How Justin Bartha’s Shaved Head Almost Screwed Up ‘National Treasure’

Jeremy Belanger
Producer, Yahoo Entertainment

Justin Bartha shared with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show about his first big film role: “I had to call the most powerful producer of all time and tell him that I was the dumbest actor of all time.”

Bartha landed a role in National Treasure, and after filming principal photography, he, on a whim, decided to shave his head. There’s only one catch: He had to film reshoots on the movie in a week and a half. Bartha called Jerry Bruckheimer, the high-powered producer of National Treasure, and begged forgiveness.

Luckily, there was a not-so-cool fix for Bartha’s ’do. The actor had to wear a wig that resembled his previous hairstyle.
