One of the things to keep in mind is when a studio green lights a movie they will want certain actors attached to it to drive the box office. The studio is also looking to make 85% of the gross the first week a movie opens. So they may have insisted on this
particular actor being attached to the movie and appeal to a certain demographic (males 18-49).
So maybe by having the actor with short hair is the studios attampt to appeal to those who are younger than this old fogie. (I'm 62 years with long hair.) I gave up long ago looking for movies that are intelligent, well written, well acted and aimed at my age group.
(One thing I would mention is at $180 million to make he movie they may have opted to cut the budget in areas like the hairdresser.)
I gave up years ago trying to make sense of Hollywood.
