Timothée’s in talks to join the Steve Carell drama ‘Beautiful Boy’. According to Variety:
Timothee Chalamet, who starred in “Call Me By Your Name,” is in talks to come on board opposite Steve Carell in the drug addiction story “Beautiful Boy.”
Amazon Studios is financing and distributing and Brad Pitt’s Plan B is producing. The story is based on David Sheff’s 2008 book “Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction,” which described his son Nic’s methamphetamine addiction and its impact on his family.

Added The Wrap’s photoshoot to the gallery. And you can also read some more glowing reviews for Timothée in “Call Me By YOur Name” below.
A 21-year-old La Guardia alum, Chalamet has the bearing of a natural; he’s deeply committed to his character but also infuses Elio with something of himself, too, as the best movie stars do. Chalamet seems to know that he’s got an innate charm, a boyish grace, and he uses that to striking effect. Elio, soulful and impetuous and a little bratty, is a kid you’ve known, a kid you wanted to be, a kid you care and root for. It’s a mature and thoughtful performance, and it augurs great things for Chalamet going forward. Hell, the tremendous extended final shot of the film would be an acting opus for someone twice or three times his age. Call Me by Your Name is not Chalamet’s first piece of work (watch Miss Stevens on Netflix), but it feels in every sense like a grand debut.
It’s truly hard to put into words what a revelation Chalamet is as Elio. The 21-year-old actor is naturally charismatic, but how he communicates Elio’s emotions throughout the picture is simply breathtaking. Even when he’s depicting Elio’s inevitable moments of teenage angst there it’s never false or mannered. He’s a rock of naturalism on Guadagnino’s gorgeous canvas.
