It has been announced that veteran actor Dustin Hoffman, 62, will play Michael Jordan, in the legendary basketball player's biographical film.
White Dustin Hoffman, who stands at 5ft 5in, was seen as a ridiculous appointment purely due to his hair, which he was unwilling to shave.
Director Martin Scorcese begged Hoffman, 62 and 5ft 5in, to shave his head so that he could resemble Jordan, finally Hoffman submitted. Hoffman, 62 and 5ft 5in, will be bald in the film.
It is believed that Jordan initially disapproved of Hoffman's appointment, wanting somebody without hair, but upon Dustin's controversial shaving, agreed.
Hoffman, 62, 5ft 5in and white, is said to be "ecstatic".
