Timothée Chalamet was offered the role of Willy Wonka without an audition (thanks to old childhood videos) | celebrities

celebritiesTimothée Chalamet didn’t have to audition for the lead role of Willy Wonka in the new feature film “Wonka.”. Director Paul King said he only needed some old YouTube videos of the 27-year-old actor’s high school performances to know he had the singing and dancing qualities required for Lonka.

“It was a live show because he’s amazing and he was the only person in my mind who could do it,” King told Rolling Stone magazine. “But because he’s Timothée Chalamet and his life is so ridiculous, his high school musical performances are on YouTube and have been watched hundreds of thousands of times. So I knew Timothée Chalamet could sing and dance very well.

The director says Chalamet was also immediately excited when King approached him for the role. “He did tap dancing in high school and he was like, ‘I want to show people I can do this.’”

Wonka is a prequel to a storyCharlie and the Chocolate Factory’ by Roald Dahl and will be shown in cinemas from December 15. The first full trailer for the film was released earlier this week. In addition to the lyrical Chalamet, it also features an orange Hugh Grant. The 62-year-old Briton has been cast to play the Oompa Loompa, a well-known character who also appears in Dahl’s books. Other roles in the film include Olivia Colman, Sally Hawkins, Keegan-Michael Key, and Rowan Atkinson.
