Jason Bateman is currently filming his new Netflix series Black Rabbit, and photos showcasing his new look have appeared online.

The Ozark and Arrested Development actor has grown his hair and is sporting a fuller, scraggy beard, giving him a slightly dishevelled look.

Although plot details are being kept mostly under wraps, we do know that the series is set in New York City's nightlife scene, and that Bateman's character Vince Friedken is officially described as "chaotic."

Jude Law plays Bateman's on-screen brother Jake Friedken, and as we can see in this second filming, he's looking better-groomed and more sharply-dressed.

From the synopsis, we know that Jake is the owner of a popular NYC hotspot, who lets his brother back into life, and soon finds that everything he's built is at risk of falling to pieces.

Bateman has quite a few projects lined up, including another Netflix series he is expected to direct and star in. This one is an adaptation of an article called 'Daddy's Ball' and focuses on a sporting rivalry between two brothers.

There's also a supernatural western called The Pinkerton, which he is set to direct with JJ Abrams on board as a producer.
