Busy times ahead for Oscar-nominated Timothée Chalamet
This year, the young Franco-American actor has more projects to add to his already impressive CV, including “Beautiful Boy” with Steve Carell, which is now slated for a United States release on Oct. 12. In the meantime, the upcoming star’s breakout performance in “Call Me by Your Name” sees him bag his first Oscar nomination at just 22 years old.
Hollywood’s next big thing, Timothée Chalamet, is being tipped as one of the most promising actors of his generation, thanks to his performance in Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me By Your Name”. With this one movie, the breakout star has already won over Hollywood with his youthful energy, his spontaneity and his fresh appeal.
In “Call Me By Your Name”, out from Nov. 24 in the U.S., the actor stole the show from his more experienced co-star Armie Hammer (“The Social Network”), with his portrayal of an adolescent who falls for an older boy. Indeed, his performance earned him a nomination for the “Best Actor” Oscar, where the newcomer and outsider faces household names like Gary Oldman, Daniel Day-Lewis and Denzel Washington.
The actor stars in another of this year’s Oscar contenders, with a role in Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird”, released in November, and also stars in “Hostiles”, a western with Christian Bale and Rosamund Pike. Timothée Chalamet is set to join Steve Carell in “Beautiful Boy”, the story of a father’s struggle with his son’s meth addiction. This poignant role could see the actor return to the red carpet at the Dolby Theatre next year. His other projects for 2018 include a role in the upcoming Woody Allen movie, “A Rainy Day in New York” starring Jude Law, Selena Gomez, Rebecca Hall and Diego Luna.
As Hollywood’s latest hot property, Timothée Chalamet’s schedule for 2019 is already starting to fill up. In June, he starts filming “The King”, a historical movie heading to Netflix next year. Chalamet will play King Henry V of England, a historical figure known for his military successes against the French in the Hundred Years’ War. David Michôd (“War Machine”) will direct and some rumors link Robert Pattinson to the project. JB
