Oozing confidence as he revealed the bushy beard and moustache decorating his chiselled jaw, the Leaving Las Vegas star also donned an Indiana Jones inspired fedora hat to complete the transformation.

Nicolas, who typically sports slicked back ebony locks and a clean-shaven appearance, also appeared to be sporting longer hair than usual as he posed.

He slipped on a The Doors t-shirt paired with a stonewash denim jacket adorned with a graphic print of a wolf.

The star completed his ensemble with black jeans and matching loafers.

Weston, who Nicolas shares with ex girlfriend Christina Fulton, showcased his tattoos and hunky frame in a black t-shirt and matching jeans as he proudly supported his father.

He wore his raven locks in a sleek ponytail and sported a distinguished beard like his father. 

Running With The Devil tells the tale of the CEO of an international conglomerate, who sends two esteemed executives to discover why cocaine shipments are being hijacked on the supply chain.

The star is focusing on his career after a turbulent period in his personal life.Back in June, Nicolas and his fourth wife Erika Koike were officially divorced after a four-day marriage.

The former couple were granted the divorce three months after their wedding, which they tried to annul after four days, after Nicolas claimed he was 'too drunk' to marry.

TMZ stated that according to court records, the judge in Clark County, NV granted their divorce on Friday, May 31.

Hollywood actor Nicolas had claimed the union was based on fraud, because Erika didn't disclose her criminal history and her relationship with another person.  

There appeared to be problems with the union almost immediately and hours after the wedding, which took place on March 23, they were seen fighting outside the Bellagio hotel.

Erika later opposed Nick's hope to annul their marriage and made a claim for spousal support.

TMZ claimed that Nicolas was unable to get the annulment but managed to get a quick divorce and it's unclear if Erika was granted the spousal support she wanted.
