Timothee Chalamet took to Instagram to share exciting new pics of him dressed up in character as the beloved Willy Wonka while wearing a top hat and blazer, giving fans a sneak peek of his upcoming ‘Wonka’ film.

Timothee Chalamet, 25, got his fans’ attention on Oct. 10 when he shared epic first pics of him as Willy Wonka for the first time! The talented actor is starring in the upcoming film Wonka, which is set to come out in 2023, and looked so much like the title character that it took our breath away! In one pic, he’s standing in the snow and giving off a serious facial expression while wearing Willy’s iconic outfit, including a high brown top hat, maroon blazer and patterned scarves. Check out the pics HERE!

In a second pic, his hand can be seen touching the top of the memorable cane Willy was known to carry. It included a purple present figurine with a red bow on the very top. “The suspense is terrible, I hope it will last …🏭WONKA🍫,” he cheekily captioned the post, referencing a line that Gene Wilder (the original Willy Wonka) said in the 1971 original adaptation, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.

Although plot details for the film have been kept under wraps, the Warner Bros. prequel will reportedly be about how Willy Wonka became the candymaker everyone knows him as. Since the movie is also a musical, Timothee is set to sing and dance throughout, something his fans are super thrilled about.

Shortly after he posted the latest pics, he received a plethora of kind and enthusiastic comments about what’s to come. “I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO EXCITED FOR ANYTHING,” one fan wrote while another asked if the hat he was wearing was made out of chocolate. Others shared more quotes from the 1971 original and one fan admitted they were “screaming” with happiness.

Timothee’s role as Willy Wonka comes almost 60 years after the story and character’s debut in the 1964 novel, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dohl. The book was about a poor boy named Charlie Bucket who wins a golden ticket to tour the mysterious and magical chocolate factory run by Willy. The book was adapted in the 1971 film as well as the 2005 film that starred Johnny Depp as Willy. Paul King is the director of Timothee’s prequel and it’s set to be released on March 17, 2023.

Adam Levine Debuts Rose Tattoo On His Face In New Photo Snapped By Behati Prinsloo

The Maroon 5 vocalist’s wife shared a photo of his brand new ink, as the two relaxed and enjoyed some tequila.

New tattoo alert! Adam Levine seems to have hopped on the face tattoo trend and gotten a rose inked on his face. His wife, Behati Prinsloo, shared a photo of the 42-year-old Maroon 5 singer sitting in the back of a car with the new ink on full display on Tuesday November 30. The singer and model seemed like they were having a nice night out and drinking some Calirosa tequila.

Behati, 33, tagged her husband of seven years and Calirosa in her Instagram story. The former Voice coach was wearing a worn green sweater, and a pair of torn up jeans, as they sat in the car, and he held the bottle of tequila. The new rose tattoo is pretty simple, showing just a black design in the shape of the flower. In later stories, Behati reposted videos from Calirosa that showed the couple taking shots of the tequila.

The new face tattoo is far from Adam’s first. The “Girls Like You” singer is covered in tattoos on his chest, arms and neck. Some of his most well-known tats include having “California” tattooed over his stomach. He also already has a few other floral tattoos, like another delicate flower on his neck.

Adam was kept pretty busy this year with Maroon 5’s touring schedule, and he’ll hit the road with his band again at the end of the year for two Las Vegas shows on December 30 and 31. While the band undoubtedly gave fans plenty of unforgettable concerts on their “MMXXI” tour, there were a few hiccups along the way. He laughed as he had a first in the 20 years of Maroon 5’s career and forgot the words to their hit song “She Will Be Loved.” He didn’t seem to mind, as he joked to the audience about it. “It’s funny because I didn’t even need to admit it because you guys came with me on the journey,” he said. Unfortunately not every moment was as silly, Adam also looked pretty angry, when a fan ran onstage and gave him a hug in the middle of one show. Gotta respect those boundaries!

Beverly Hills police responded to a 911 call from the residence around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday in the upscale Truesdale estates.

Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore announced that a police task force has been created to apprehend “follow-home” robbers.

Alec Baldwin Insists He ‘Didn’t Pull The Trigger’ In Tragic ‘Rust’ Shooting: I Would ‘Never’

Alec Baldwin Insists He ‘Didn’t Pull The Trigger’ In Tragic ‘Rust’ Shooting: I Would ‘Never’

In a preview clip of his upcoming interview with George Stephanopoulos, Alec Baldwin claims that he did not fire the gun that killed Halyna Hutchins on the set of ‘Rust.’

Alec Baldwin, 63, will address his involvement in the accidental shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of his film Rust in an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on Thursday, December 2. A preview clip was released the day before the full-length interview, and it shows Alec claiming that he didn’t fire the gun — which was loaded with a live bullet — that killed Halyna, 42, and injured director Joel Souza while they were filming scenes for the Western movie in New Mexico on October 21. “The trigger wasn’t pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger,” Alec explained.

Alec’s comments led George, 60, to ask the actor, “So you never pulled the trigger?” Alec responded, “No, no, no. I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger at them, never.” The rest of that conversation will be show in the full interview. Also in the preview, the 30 Rock alum said he has “no idea” how a real bullet ended up on the Rust set and inside the gun. “Someone put a live bullet in the gun. A bullet that wasn’t even supposed to be on the property,” he explained to George.

Alec got emotional throughout the interview preview clip. At one point, George asked the Emmy winner if the shooting incident “is the worst thing that’s ever happened” to him. Alec shook his head in agreement, and said, “Yes. Because I think back, and I think of what could I have done?” Alec also spoke fondly about Halyna, before getting choked up about his late co-worker. “She was someone who was loved by everyone who worked with, and liked by everyone who worked with, and admired,” he said.

This ABC News special marks Alec’s first sit-down interview since the Rust shooting occurred. He previously spoke about the incident to the press in Manchester, Vermont with his wife Hilaria Baldwin, and he told the reporters the tragedy was “a one in a trillion event.” The star had initially broken his silence the day after Halyna died. “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours,” he wrote on Instagram. “I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred.”

The Rust shooting is still under investigation. Jason Bowles and Robert Gorence, the attorneys for Rust armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, have said they’re investigating whether someone was attempting to “sabotage the set” of Alec’s film by putting a live bullet in a box of dummy rounds, which led to Halyna’s death.
