By rights, Randy Quaid should have a face that most people are familiar with. After all, the famous actor has not only fronted a successful comedy movie franchise and had roles in almost 100 films, but he’s also picked up a Golden Globe along the way. After a controversial hiatus from Hollywood, however, the star has returned with a brand-new look – and his transformation may just shock you.

Quaid is part of an acting dynasty, of course, along with his brother, Dennis, and nephew Jack, who first shot to fame in the Hunger Games franchise. And even early in his career, the star received acclaim, being nominated for an Oscar, a BAFTA and a Golden Globe for his part in 1973 comedy-drama The Last Detail. Perhaps one of his most famous roles over the years, however, is as erstwhile pilot Russell Casse in 1996 sci-fi blockbuster Independence Day.
