Timothee Chalamet feels left out of Apple TV+ in new ad

After Jon Hamm got cast in an Apple TV+ show, everyone in Hollywood seems to have an Apple series -- except Timothee Chalamet.

Chalamet wants his own Apple TV+ show

Chasing down a similar theme to "Everyone but Jon Hamm," a new Apple TV+ ad called "Call Me" features Timothee Chalamet feeling left out of Apple's success. The short ad shows him viewing Apple TV+ content at different moments, thinking out loud about how he'd be able to perform each role.

One moment in the ad, Chalamet receives a call from Jason Momoa, who shares that he's just wrapped on his new Apple show. Chalamet asks, "wait, you have a new Apple show?" and Momoa responds, "at this point, who doesn't?"



{"@context":"https://schema.org/","@type":"VideoObject","name":"Call Me with Timothee Chalamet | Apple TV+","description":"Apple TV+ has almost all the biggest stars in Hollywood. Almost. Timothee Chalamet wants in. ","thumbnailUrl":"https://i.ytimg.com/vi/-p89peAjbLA/sddefault.jpg","uploadDate":"2023-01-20T18:59:49Z","duration":"PT1M39S","embedUrl":""}

The original ad, "Everyone but Jon Hamm" was nominated for an Emmy. Ultimately, Jon Hamm was hired for a role on "The Morning Show."

If Apple follows this pattern, we'll surely hear of a new series or role starring Timothee Chalamet in the coming months.

    Isn't Timothee Chalamet busy with his "Dune" series on HBO Max? Or the inevitable "Bones and All" cannibalism rom-com? Apple TV+ should make choices based on what viewers want to see, not what actors want. And so far, they're doing a great job. Much better quality vs. quantity ratio than anyone else in the streaming milieu. If he's a fit for a future concept, fine, but I didn't like him in Dune. And there's no way I'm going to watch a romance between cannibals. Gotta draw the line somewhere, and that's it. If I'm going to watch a show about cannibals, I want them to be Maoris or zombies, not millenials (zombie cannibal millennials, sure. They're mostly iPhone zombies anyway).

    Well, I would prefer him to concetrate on Dune. I might have some niggles with Chalamet in the Paul atriedes role, but that production is absolutely awesome

    Just wondering why when AppleInsider reports on a video they never include that video or a link. Sites like MacRumors do.

    We are clearly not seeing the same thing.

    Very true. Must be one of my off days (weeks? months?). Apologies to anyone I offended by my comment.

    You do understand that this is an advertisement, and that he was paid, by Apple, to appear in it, right?

    To me, it seems like a safe bet that Chalamet will, in fact, be appearing in an Apple TV movie, show, or series in the not to distant future.
