* The [=McManus=] Brothers evidently grew beards and long shaggy hair while hiding out in Ireland after the events of the first ''Film/TheBoondockSaints'' film. Before returning to Boston, they [[ImportantHaircut shave and cut their hair]].... then [[LampshadeHanging wonder why they did that]], when ''now'' they match their wanted posters, and ''before'' they "looked like JesusChrist."

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': Creator/CharlieCox (Matt Murdock) and Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson) generally sport beards in real life, and have to shave them to play Matt and Foggy (Matt has PermaStubble, and Foggy is clean-shaven).
