Timothée Chalamet Rocks the ’60s Look as Bob Dylan in Biopic

Exclusive set photos from the NYC shoot have gone viral online.

As cameras roll on the much-anticipated biopic A Complete Unknown, all eyes are on Timothée Chalamet as he steps into the iconic shoes of legendary musician Bob Dylan.

Directed by James Mangold, the film promises an intimate portrayal of Dylan’s early years in the vibrant folk music scene of 1960s New York.

Set photos from the New York City shoot have surfaced online, offering fans a tantalizing glimpse of Chalamet in character as the young Bob Dylan.

Bundled up against the city’s wintry chill, the 28-year-old actor cuts a striking figure, sporting an old-fashioned scarf, gloves, and a thick jacket, all while carrying a guitar, a quintessential accessory for the budding musician.

A Complete Unknown chronicles Bob Dylan’s journey from his humble beginnings in Minnesota to his fateful arrival in New York, where he would soon make a profound impact on the music world. The film promises to delve into Dylan’s formative years, capturing the essence of a pivotal moment in music history.

Joining Timothée Chalamet in the cast are a slew of talented performers, including Elle Fanning as Sylvie Russo, Monica Barbaro as Joan Baez, Nick Offerman as Alan Lomax, and Boyd Holbrook as Johnny Cash. Edward Norton steps into the role of Pete Seeger, replacing Benedict Cumberbatch after a production delay.

Director James Mangold has described the film as an ensemble piece that explores the vibrant tapestry of New York’s folk music scene in the early ’60s. Speaking on the Happy Sad Confused podcast last year, Mangold emphasized the film’s focus on a specific moment in Dylan’s life, rather than a comprehensive biopic.

With its star-studded cast and compelling narrative, A Complete Unknown has already generated significant buzz among fans and critics alike. As production continues to unfold, anticipation mounts for what promises to be a cinematic journey through the life and music of one of America’s most iconic artists.

While Searchlight Pictures has yet to announce a release date for A Complete Unknown, fans can rest assured that they’ll be eagerly awaiting the opportunity to experience Timothée Chalamet’s transformative portrayal of Bob Dylan on the big screen.
