Timothee Chalamet Plays Willy Wonka Without Auditions
Launching Variety, the director of the Wonka film, Paul King, revealed that Timothee Chalamet was chosen directly by him without going through the audition stage.
In fact, it was reported that Warner Bros. was trying to persuade famous artists such as Donald Glover, Ezra Miller and Ryan Gosling to play Willy Wonka.
