It’s been a while since we’ve seen this side of Ashton Kutcher — or should we say, this face! The actor debuted a clean-cut new look at the Television Critics Association Tour in Pasadena, Calif., on Wednesday, revealing his freshly shaved face and trimmed tresses.

Speaking with Two and a Half Men costar Jon Cryer, Kutcher beamed while discussing upcoming episodes of the series, and mentioned that his new look is related to the show. “Tune in Monday,” he hinted.

Work-related or not, we haven’t seen the actor — who recently had longer hair and lots of facial scruff — sporting a look like this since about 2009. Tell us: Do you love Kutcher’s new look?
