Kate Hudson Goes Brunette for a Role: Likes or Yikes?

While filming The Reluctant Fundamentalist in N.Y.C., the actress ditches her usual blond locks for a darker color

Kate Hudson is taking on a new hue. The 32-year-old actress has been photographed on the New York City set of her upcoming thriller, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, sporting a brand-new brunette hairdo!

Though it's most likely a wig, the dark brown color was a starling but welcome change from Hudson's usual blond hair. Judging by her costume, Hudson's character in the film might be a bit frumpy, but she's totally rocking the new hair style.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist, the adaptation of Mohsin Hamid's hit book of the same name, is being directed by Mira Nair and is scheduled to hit theaters in 2013. Hudson was spotted shooting scenes with Riz Ahmed, who plays the movie's main character Changez, a man whose life is inexorably changed by the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Hudson plays a woman with whom Changez has a love affair; Liev Schreiber and Kiefer Sutherland round out the cast.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist is Hudson's first movie since she and her fiancé, 32-year-old Muse frontman Matt Bellamy, welcomed their son Bingham in July. Hudson also has a 7-year-old son named Ryder with her ex-husband, Black Crowes lead singer Chris Robinson.
