Wonka Cast Timothée Chalamet After Seeing his Viral Videos

A Wonka prequel starring Timothée Chalamet to be released in December.

Director Paul King has stated that Timothée Chalamet’s viral videos of his high school performances helped him be cast in the all-singing, all-dancing movie. This comes in light of the new Wonka trailer, which has caused the internet to go wild.

Timothée Chalamet’s high school musical performances are on YouTube and have hundreds of millions of views because of who he is and how ludicrous his life is, according to King, who spoke to Rolling Stone. I was aware of Timmy Chalamet’s talent for singing and dancing since I had been scouting for him. And while I was aware of that weapon in his inventory, I was unsure of his skill level. He was quite interested when I spoke to him. He had practiced tap dancing in high school and said, “I’d like to prove to everyone that I can do it.

In one such video, Chalamet can be seen rapping the song “Jump” at his New York high school in 2012, when he would have been 17 years old, using the alias “Lil Timmy Tim.” Timmy Tim brings along some backup dancers and pulls out a few routines as well. At the time of writing, 4.7 million people have watched the four-minute clip.

As we follow him on his path from an everyday man to the giver of golden tickets in Wonka, Timothee Chalamet portrays a younger version of the fabled chocolatier from Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Sally Hawkins, Olivia Colman, Keegan-Michael Key, Rowan Atkinson, and Keegan-Michael Key make up his supporting cast.

Wonka is scheduled to premiere on December 15. Check out our own chat with writer-director King about the movie’s trailer for more information.
