Timothée Chalamet’s Agent Says He Hasn’t Had To Audition For Roles In ‘More Than 7 Years’ After Gladiator 2 Rumors Rolled Around

After getting his start in the movie world in 2014 with Men, Women & Children, and followed shortly thereafter by by Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, Timothée Chalamet really started turning heads in 2017 thanks to his appearances in flicks like Call Me by Your Name and Lady Bird. Cut to 2023, Chalamet is now one of Hollywood’s most famous younger actors, to the point that his agent has shared that Chalamet hasn’t had to audition for a role in “more than seven years.” This revelation came after some Gladiator 2 rumors concerning his client were rolling around.

In case you missed the news last week, it was announced that Paul Mescal has been cast to lead Gladiator 2 as Lucius, the son of Connie Nielsen’s Lucilla and nephew of Joaquin Phoenix’s Commodus, who was previously played by Spencer Treat Clark. Following that news coming out, it was rumored that Timothée Chalamet was among the actors who auditioned for that role, which led to Chalamet’s agent, Brian Swardstrom, responding to a now-deleted tweet to debunk that claim. As Swardstrom put it on Twitter:

I know one of these actors was shooting a film in the middle east for the past several months – and he hasn’t auditioned for anything in more than 7 years.
