You Will Not Recognize Larry David

Larry David has got himself a long beard and hair for his upcoming HBO film, “Clear History,” leaving the Jewish funnyman basically unrecognizable.

After watching the bald character on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” for so many years, the character in his new film, out this August, resembles nothing of the personality of anal, self-inflicting, persona, just by the fact that he has hair— and lots of it.

The new trailer doesn’t have any dialogue so we don’t know for sure if there will be any David-isms, but film director Greg Mottola of “Super Bad,” said the movie has a lot of improv, according to New York Mag.

“Clear History” will also star Bill Hader, Jon Hamm, Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton, Danny McBride, and Amy Ryan.
