Why does richard look like a pirate ?

any thoughts on whats up with richard looking all piraty when he meets ben for the first time (man behind the curtin) and did ya notice the tiny smirk when ben says she (his mom) died off island. Why is this the only time we see richard with long hair, in different clothes.....the year is what the 70 s sometime, we see him in the 50s all clean cut ..... WHY oh why ??? (so glad richard has 16 of the 18 episodes)
