Attention, Timothee Chalamet fans: The drought is over. Chalamet, our gorgeous, tousled-hair heartthrob. is set to make his return to the big screen later this year and we finally have the first look at his newest leading role—and the haircut that goes with it.
Described as “Game of Thrones meets Shakespeare” by director Joel Edgerton, Chalamet will star in the new medieval drama The King as “Hal,” a “wayward” prince whose ascent to the throne following his fathers tragic death is met with tension. Hal “must navigate the palace snake pit, chaos and inherited war against France,” according to IMDB. The film is an adaption of Shakespeare’s “Henry IV, Part 1,” “Henry IV, Part 2,” and “Henry V.” The King also stars Robert Pattison, who plays Dauphin of France, Lily-Rose Depp as Catherine of Valois and Edgerton as John Falstaff, who is also the king’s best friend.
In the first image of the historical drama, Chalamet, sits with a deadpan expression on a throne surrounded by his royal entourage and townspeople. But it’s Timmy’s choppy bowl cut that steals the scene. Yes, the mere mention of a bowl cut likely brings to mind painful memories of those experimental bathroom haircut gone awry, but on Timothee it looks…hot?
We’ll miss his long, sweeping tousled mane, but I’m not mad at his new look and Twitter isn’t either.
