At a screening of his hot film “Call Me by Your Name,” Timothée Chalamet, 21, told Oscar-winning guest Joel Grey, 85, they’d played the same role in “Cabaret.”

A spy says that when blown-away Chalamet met Grey, he “told Joel that his signature role at La Guardia High School was as the emcee in ‘Cabaret.’ Timothée even pulled up pictures to show him.”

Are you bugging?
I am in total shock right now. I could never have expected this in a million years. The other actors in the category are people that I’ve been studying and admiring for years, so I keep scratching my eyes trying to see what the fifth name is, seeing my name, and then scratching my eyes again.

New articles + Late Late Show images

There are couple new interviews out by Vanity Fair and Film School Rejects, so check those out. Some excerpts below, as usual. I have also updated the gallery with images from The Late Late Show with James Corden a few photoshoots.

In many ways, the depth of the film’s love story depends on Chalamet’s ability to convey an unpredictable stream of teenage emotions—restlessness, lust, sensitivity, surliness—as his relationship with Hammer’s character blooms. When Guadagnino (I Am Love, A Bigger Splash) first heard of Chalamet—from agent Brian Swardstrom—the filmmaker had already spent seven years trying to get an adaptation off the ground. Chalamet, who was 17 when he met Guadagnino, had just wrapped a recurring role on Showtime’s Homeland as Finn Walden, the troublemaker son of the vice president (Jamey Sheridan). But it wasn’t the actor’s résumé that impressed Guadagnino when they met for breakfast.

“I saw an incredibly articulate, bright, smart, artistically ambitious young man, someone who not only had a sense of self that was completely un-narcissistic but had ambition to make sure his art as an actor was shining on-screen,” Guadagnino said. Vanity Fair

Can you please tell me about your sleepover parties with James Ivory?

He’s a giant of cinema. Howard’s End, The Remains of the Day, A Room with a View, Maurice. There was a night I stayed with him and we watched Maurice together. He kind of dissected the film for me and drew out the similarities between that film and Call Me By Your Name. It would be a treat for any actor, but especially for a young actor to be around such a pioneer of filmmaking with that Merchant/Ivory catalog. Film School Rejects

A new article in Vulture + LA Critics awards win

Vulture released a spotlight piece on Timothée a few days ago and it’s worth the read. Some excerpts below.

Timothée also won another Best Actor award, this time from the LA Film Critics. Congratulations to him and also for ‘Call Me By Your Name’ for winning Best Picture.

Chalamet is on the verge of becoming a major actor, but to spend any time with him is to learn that he is still a big fan at heart. Just this week, after winning the Breakthrough Actor trophy at the Gotham Awards, an excited Chalamet used his speech to pay tribute to New York artists who inspire him — “John Leguizamo! Cardi B! Martin Scorsese!” he extolled — and now, thanks to Call Me by Your Name, Chalamet has devoted young fans of his own.

It helps that he has been too busy to fully indulge. The day after Call Me by Your Name’s triumphant debut at the Sundance Film Festival in January, Chalamet auditioned to play Steve Carell’s drug-addicted son in the drama Beautiful Boy, then had to quickly drop 20 pounds from his already-slim frame to commit to that role through the summer. “It was a great way to digest how Call Me by Your Name was being received, as a sidebar,” he said. “I was just trying to be disciplined and devoted to the work.” With that under his belt, and a Woody Allen film that Chalamet stars in but has not yet figured out how to address, he has begun preparing for his extensive Call Me by Your Name publicity tour by studying early interviews of LeBron James and Jennifer Lawrence on YouTube. “When I go back and watch her early press kits, or even LeBron’s, I’m so impressed because they were so poised and well-spoken.” Has he ever run into the Hunger Games star? “I did get to meet her once briefly,” Chalamet said, joking, “I camped out at a press line for Mother!”
