The Lone Survivor star seemed ready for the outdoors, dressed in beige cargo pants with a military green shirt with buttons over a gray t-shirt and multicolored sneakers.

He wore a military green jacket with a hood and a tanned baseball cap over his slightly grown brown hair.

Adding to his natural appearance, he wore a full but filthy beard and mustache.
