When an actor gets a haircut, it's usually for a new role in a film.

But fans are less likely to embrace the change, especially when a celebrity lops off a significant amount of hair.


Remember when Keri Russell's Felicity got her signature curly tresses criminally cut off? Yeah, fans of that show are still in mourning.

So when actor Tom Holland shaved his head, a chorus of fans lamented his locks that were gone too soon, while others humorously drew comparisons with characters or actors sporting the same buzz cut.

The 23-year old Spider-Man: Far From Home actor wasn't volunteering a new look just for kicks.

He likely shaved his head in preparation for his role as real-life US Army veteran Nico Walker in the upcoming crime drama film, Cherry, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo.

Instant fan reactions were mixed.








But the comments that stood out most called attention to his uncanny resemblance to Eleven from Stranger Things.

If you're still not sold on the comparison, perhaps this doctored photo might help.








This user supported the plausibility of the Eleven—played by Millie Bobby Brown—resemblance, given Holland's enduring youthful looks.

But other comparisons were made after Holland revealed his buzz cut.




Many fans thought Holland looked more like rapper Eminem than Eleven.








As for Holland's next project, don't expect to see Peter Parker donning his Spidey suit for a head-to-head battle with a Demogorgon.

Cherry, which began filming in October, is based on the semi-autobiographical novel of the same name written by Nico Walker, who will be played by Holland.

It is about an Army medic struggling with undiagnosed PTSD and an opioid addiction after returning from Iraq who begins robbing banks.

The trending tweets about his new look are a silly distraction from the real horror show going on around the world this Halloween, but the spooky dilemma at the moment is: are you Team Eleven or Team Eminem?
