MANILA - TV superstar Coco Martin has shaved his head for his role in ABS-CBN's upcoming adaptation of the 1997 action film "Ang Probinsyano," which starred the late film icon Fernando Poe, Jr.

On Instagram Friday, producer Dreamscape Entertainment Television released photos of a scene where Martin's head is being shaved.

Other photos show him posing with his co-stars, including Poe's widow, screen veteran Susan Roces. The scene was filmed on location at the Philippine National Police Academy in Silang, Cavite.

"FPJ's Ang Probinsyano" centers on provincial cop Kardo, portrayed by Martin. In the film, he assumes the identity of his twin brother who was killed in a drug bust operation.

Joining Martin and Roces in the cast are Angeline Quinto and Bella Padilla. A premiere date for the series has yet to be announced.
