Timothée
Chalamet

At a time when Hollywood is desperate to find a new generation of leading men, there are few actors who fit the bill better than Chalamet. After  receiving an Oscar nomination for his breakout role in Luca Guadag­nino’s coming-of-age film “Call Me by Your Name,” he appeared in two Greta Gerwig films — “Lady Bird” and “Little Women.” Still in his tender 20s, Chalamet proved he can ably anchor a blockbuster, pulling in big ticket sales as the star of Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune,” which has a sequel on tap.
