The Old Vic is bringing Timothée Chalamet to the London stage next spring in a production of 4,000 Miles, Amy Herzog’s Pulitzer prize-nominated play about family and intergenerational grief.
Herzog’s work was nominated for a Pulitzer in 2013, and the New York Times said plays that were as “truthful and touching and fine” as 4,000 Miles came along “once or maybe twice a season, if we’re lucky”.
Chalamet’s debut on a London stage will be one of the starriest theatre moments of 2020. The Hollywood star, who first appeared as a child actor in Channel 4’s Homeland, has also been cast as Paul Atreides in a forthcoming remake of Dune, and will appear in the sequel to Call Me By Your Name, which is called Find Me.
4,000 Miles is the story of 21-year-old Leo who goes on a cross-country cycling tour with his best friend. After weeks of no contact he arrives alone at the home of his 91-year-old grandmother, Vera, and the pair begin an unlikely co-existence together in Manhattan.
The Timothée section has been totally revamped. It now has detailed pages for all of his work in movies, TV and theatre, as well as a complete biography, fun facts and name meanings, so do check it all out. In addition, the gallery has been updated with images from his high school plays “Sweet Charity” and “Cabaret”.
First of all, you can see a read of John Patrick Shanley’s (‘Prodigal Son’) ‘Tennessee’ with Timothée here.
And continuing on with the event images. Today – 2015. I also added a photoshoot image I missed earlier.
Added screencaptures from the official Prodigal Son clips to the gallery along with a behind the scenes photo from the WMan photoshoot.
