It's official, folks: Matt Damon has a ponytail. And we're digging it. 

The 44-year-old actor debuted his new look in Beijing, China on Thursday, during press conference for his forthcoming film The Great Wall at the Park Hyatt Hotel. 

Wearing a button-down shirt and basic blue jeans, the Bourne Identity star flaunted his hip new hairstyle—and a little bit of facial scruff—while flashing a beaming smile as he addressed the audience. 

While it's unclear if Damon's luscious locks are for an upcoming role, we think the father of four looks mighty fine with his new 'do. 

Watch out, Jared Leto, you may have some competition in the hair department...

Meanwhile, the trailer for Damon's new film The Martian was released earlier this month, which also stars Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Kristen Wiig.

The Good Will Hunting star plays astronaut Mark Watney, who fights to stay alive after being stranded on Mars by his NASA colleagues due to a storm.

Based on the bestselling book by Andy Weir, the Ridley Scott-directed film also stars Kate MaraSean Bean and Donald Glover

The Martian is set to hit theaters on Nov. 25, 2015.

Here's hoping Damon does press with that pony.
