Aaron Taylor Johnson's Chinny Chin Chin

I don't know why it only just occurred to me this morning via this new picture taken by Aaron's wife that that luxurious beard that he's been sporting for awhile now must be for a role - and sure enough a quick check shows the only project he's got officially lined up right now is a movie called Outlaw King from Hell or High Water and Starred Up director David Mackenzie. The movie stars High Water's leading man Chris Pine, and is described thus:

"A true David v Goliath story of how the great 14th Century Scottish 'Outlaw King' Robert The Bruce (Pine) used cunning and bravery to defeat and repel the much larger and better equipped occupying English army. "

Aaron is playing James Douglas, who was a real dude - read his Wiki here if you care to; there's a drawing of what the dude looked like even. I figured he'd be the face of the English side but Douglas is Scottish, so I guess we're going to hear Aaron's stab at a brogue. I'm turned on already. Anyway there that's your history lesson for the day. And via IMDB comes this shot of Chris Pine in character:
