    Timothée Chalamet’s ascent to Hollywood stardom had an origin and he just broke the record of that origin with ‘Dune 2‘. The Christopher Nolan-directed superhero story ‘The Dark Knight’ was the movie that inspired little Timmy to pursue acting. The first calling Chalamet felt was to become a rapper and videos of a teenage Timothee will have you believe that he could have a career there as well. 

    Even though the ‘Willy Wonka’ star has sworn off doing superhero movies on the advice of ‘Wolf Of The Wall Street’ boy Leonardo DiCaprio he won’t pass it if the gig is right. In an interview with The New York Times, the ‘Lady Bird’ actor shared, “Well, Leonardo DiCaprio said to me, ‘No superhero movies, no hard drugs.’ Which I thought was very good. I follow them both! But the movie that made me want to act is a superhero movie, The Dark Knight. If the script was great, if the director was great, I’d have to consider it.”

    As ‘Dune 2’ continues to rewrite records, it’s clear that Chalamet’s star power is soaring high at the moment.
