Timothée Chalamet’s “Incredible” Music Skills Get Praise From Bob Dylan Movie Director



A relatively unknown actor, Timothée Chalamet, has received high praise for his exceptional musical abilities from James Mangold, the director of the Bob Dylan biopic. As Chalamet prepares to reprise his role as Paul Atreides in the upcoming Dune: Part Two, he is also immersing himself in a completely different role as the iconic musical star Bob Dylan. In the biopic A Complete Unknown, Chalamet will portray Dylan during the early 1960s, a time when the folk star made the daring decision to transition to electric music at the Newport Folk Festival. This controversial move labeled him as a betrayer by some within the folk community.

In addition to his acting responsibilities in A Complete Unknown, Chalamet will showcase his own musical talents by singing and playing Dylan’s songs in the film. While this may seem like a risky endeavor for the young actor, director Mangold, who previously guided Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon through similar musical challenges in Walk the Line, expresses utmost confidence in Chalamet’s ability to excel in this role. Mangold recently discussed Chalamet’s ongoing preparation for A Complete Unknown and showered him with praise for his musical skills during an appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast with Josh Horowitz.

Chalamet’s dedication and hard work are evident as he immerses himself in the role. The musical rehearsals have been fruitful, with Chalamet’s performances being described as incredible. Mangold wholeheartedly believes in Chalamet’s capabilities and praises the entire cast for their camaraderie and commitment. The expectations for this film are high, much like an Indiana Jones movie, but the team’s three years of preparation and unwavering dedication have set them up for success. Even when COVID forced them to pause production, the cast and crew continued to write, rehearse, and refine their skills. Chalamet’s commitment to his craft is evident, even taking his guitar with him on the set of Dune and playing it during breaks.

Chalamet’s musical abilities will also be put to the test in another upcoming musical film, Wonka. In this movie, he will not only step into the shoes of the beloved character originated by Gene Wilder but also showcase his singing talent. Fans were treated to a glimpse of Chalamet’s singing prowess when a set video leaked online in 2021. Successfully portraying Dylan’s songs in A Complete Unknown and delivering memorable tunes as Willy Wonka will solidify Chalamet’s reputation as a versatile actor capable of handling music-focused roles.

As of now, the release date for Chalamet’s portrayal of Dylan in A Complete Unknown has yet to be announced, but the film is expected to hit theaters in either 2024 or 2025. Stay tuned for updates on this highly anticipated project.

A Complete Unknown star Timothée Chalamet gets praise for his “incredible” musical skills from Bob Dylan biopic director James Mangold. As Chalamet gets set to reprise his role as Paul Atreides in the upcoming Dune: Part Twothe actor continues to prepare himself for a role of a very different kind, that of iconic musical star Bob Dylan. In the biopic A Complete UnknownChalamet will play Dylan in the early 1960s when the folk star made the controversial decision to go electric at the Newport Folk Festival, a move that (at least according to legend) led to him being considered a Judas by some in the folk community.




In addition to carrying out the task of acting as Dylan in A Complete UnknownChalamet will lend his own musical skills to the film, singing and playing Dylan’s songs himself. This may seem like a risky move for the young star, but director Mangold, who previously put Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon through similar musical paces in Walk the LInedoesn’t appear to be worried at all about Chalamet’s ability to pull off the feat. Appearing on the Happy Sad Confused podcast with Josh HorowitzMangold discussed Chalamet’s ongoing preparation for A Complete Unknownand heaped praise upon his star’s musical skills. Check out what he had to say in the space below (around 28:00 of the clip):

Timmy is working his ass off right as we speak. … We’ve been in musical rehearsals, and we laid things down just to learn from them, but the music is incredible and he’s incredible. I couldn’t have more confidence in him and in all the others joining in. Not unlike making an Indiana Jones movie, the expectations are high, but so is the camaraderie and the love among us. We’ve all been essentially working on this movie for the last three years. So there’s been a lot of preparation. When COVID took us offline, no one stopped. Writing, rehearsing, Timmy playing guitar and working. Probably took it with him through every Dune, and probably was playing guitar as he was riding a worm.



Chalamet Will Also Test His Musical Ability In Wonka

Wonka Timothee Chalamet

Playing Dylan’s iconic songs in A Complete Unknown seems like enough of a test of Chalamet’s musical skills, but the actor is in fact about to star in another musical movie that could be even more of a challenge. In this year’s WonkaChalamet will not only take on a role originated by the great Gene Wilder, and later also played by Johnny Depp, he will do his own singing in the film. Fans were indeed treated to a sneak peek of Chalamet’s Wonka pipes when set video leaked to the internet back in 2021.

If Chalamet pulls off the double-dip of playing Dylan’s songs convincingly, and belting out some memorable tunes as Willy Wonka, he will erase all doubt about his ability to carry off a music-heavy role. It’s yet to be revealed when fans can expect to see Chalamet’s Dylan turn in A Complete Unknownbut the film is expected to arrive in 2024 or 2025.
