Sean Penn debuts red hair as he wears a New York paramedic uniform to shoot night scenes for the thriller Black Flies
Sean Penn seemed ready to save lives during a night shoot in New York City for his new movie Black Flies on Tuesday night.
The actor, 61, wore newly dyed red hair as he donned a black jacket that read ‘paramedic’ over the right side of his chest and ‘FDNY’ over the left side.
Black Flies is a thriller that follows a young paramedic, played by Ready Player One star Tye Sheridan, as he works during his first year on the job.

The Into the Wild director’s time on set came after he finalized his divorce from his third wife Leila George.
The former couple previously started their relationship in 2016, and they tied the knot during a small wedding ceremony that took place at their home in 2020.

First wife: Penn was married to Madonna from 1985 to 1989 (pictured 1987)
The actor was previously married to both Madonna and Robin Wright, and he shares a daughter named Dylan and a son named Hopper, aged 31 and 29, with the latter.
He was also connected to figures such as Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johansson and Jewel.
Penn went on to begin an on-again-off-again relationship with George, 29, and they made their union official at the height of the pandemic.
The pair remained together for just over a year before the actress filed for divorce in October of last year.

The actor discussed the end of his time with his former wife during an interview with the Hollywood Authentic, where he expressed that the dissolution of his union was entirely his fault.
Penn noted that he only saw George ‘on a day-to-day basis now, because I f***** up the marriage.’
The performer then stated that his obsession with following the news contributed to his separation from his former wife.
He expressed that younger wives ‘don’t actually love it when they get up from their peaceful night’s sleep and their new husband is on the couch, having been up since four, watching all of the crap that’s going on in the world.’
Penn did remark, however, that George was his ‘best friend in the world and definitely the most influential, inspiring person, outside of my own blood, that anybody could ask to have in their life.’
The finalization of the couple’s divorce was revealed by TMZ last Friday, when a judge signed off on their papers.
