John Travolta stole our hearts when he appeared in Grease but now the dimpled macho hero days behind him. With his new film Moose, viewers will get to see the actor in a totally different light. He plays the role of a psychotic stalker in the film.
His look from the film will make you do a double turn. John was recently spotted on the streets wearing a Hawaiian shirt along with glasses, sporting a bowl cut, a grey and white beard and a general look of dejection about him.
He completed the look with a backpack and droopy shoulders and let’s just say he looked perfect for the role he is said to be playing. John signed the film in March and it is semi-autobiographical as it is based on the experience that director and Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst had with his fan. John, on his part, has been extremely tight-lipped about the character that he is playing in the movie.

However, during an interview with TMZ, he had mentioned how working with Fred was “maybe my favorite experience I’ve had. He’s so generous, and he’s such an artist and he allowed me to create a character that nobody else would allow. I mean, it’s really a wild character and I felt very free to do that.”
He was always asked if he had been given leeway as an actor. John agreed to it and said, “But had great ideas and he already edited this film in his imagination, so he knows how he’s going to put it together, so he knew how to let me (be) free within a boundary.” In another interview with ET, John could not help but praise Fred and his skills as a director.
“I think Fred did an extraordinary job writing this and directing it,” John said. “He’s a top artist. This guy is the real deal. Fred has the qualities, the attributes that all the great directors have. This movie and this performance are like nothing I’ve seen before. And I just haven’t read a script this interesting in years. … I couldn’t wait to do it. And it’s been a long time where I couldn’t actually wait to do something.”
The movie will also see Canadian actor Devon Sawa, playing the object of fascination for John’s character Moose. “(Moose is) so earnest about his love and fascination with the Hunter Dunbar character, which Devon Sawa plays so brilliantly,” John said of his character.
