Timothée Chalamet to play younger Willy Wonka in ‘Chocolate Factory’ prequel


A candy position for Timothée

Roald Dahl’s greatest story, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” was a 2005 film. It comes once more.

Olivia Colman, who does Brit-type movies, joins Timothée Chalamet in it. The factor takes place earlier than “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”

It’s a couple of younger Willy Wonka. Chalamet performs him on this new movie, “Wonka,” and it’s his first on-screen musical — though he went to LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts the place he dated Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes. Whether or not they really made music collectively, this I don’t know.

A form of royal exhibiting

Although “Diana: The Musical,” which stars Jeanna de Waal, opens at B’method’s Longacre Theatre subsequent month, it streamed Friday. On Netflix. In its honor had been royal events. Not at Buckingham. At our veddy British Crosby Street Hotel plus Town & Country’s on the Palace Hotel. I imply, the place else? It was excessive tea. Scones, crustless cucumber sandwiches. Want bagels, attempt one other present. Sparkle Miss Markle and no matter stays of the husband — who does NOT love New York nor something however her checking account — didn’t attend any social gathering. Possibly Prince Empty ran out for diapers.

Explorer boor

The Explorers Club — members embrace Jane Goodall, Buzz Aldrin, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos — is the thing of a multimillion buck defamation lawsuit. Christine Dennison, the primary girl to analysis beneath polar ice caps, filed a criticism about being bullied and intimidated by a male senior membership supervisor. The membership then — per the criticism — “campaigned to defame, harass and intimidate her.” A member 16 years, the criticism alleges she’s the primary girl expelled within the membership’s 117 years. Its then-president, Richard Wiese, testified beneath oath in a deposition he “absolutely” felt she’d “taken advantage of the ‘Me Too movement.’ ” New York’s lawyer normal is investigating sexual harassment expenses filed in opposition to the membership by one other member.

Trying occasions

Vaxes and masks are divvying social gathering traces. The Siena Poll reveals rising help for obligatory vaccinations, which 49 % of conservatives and suburbs favor overwhelmingly. In Alabama, Donald Trump introduced extra folks have to be vaccinated. Many Republicans make this a partisan difficulty downside. Donald’s pleasant viewers booed. Then his “Of course you’re free to make a choice” grabbed a standing ovation.

Come December comes 4 venues on “The Trump-O’Reilly History Tour.” Dec. 11, FLA Live Arena in Sunrise, Fla.; Dec. 12, Amway Center in Orlando, Fla.; Dec. 18, Toyota Center in Houston; Dec. 19, American Airlines Center in Dallas. VIP $7,500 tickets get you an image with Trump, wonderful seat, MAGA swag and a signed “Killing the Mob.” Ticketmaster or BillOReilly.com will assist with seats.

Making strikes

More heavy-duty stuff. Jumaane Williams, NYC’s public advocate, about whom no person’s heard, started a committee for a main in opposition to Gov. Kathy Hochul. Not their first scrabble collectively. Both beauties clawed for the 2018 nomination when Andrew Cuomo knighted Hochul. Williams had then grabbed 47 % of the vote. Lee Zeldin likes Jumaane and doesn’t favor masks and vaccinations, however thinks New York favors him and likewise thinks he’s our subsequent governor. Meanwhile, Attorney General Letitia James — who sunk Andrew Cuomo and is the one who killed the king — seems to be to seize that throne. Hey, this kind factor is solely in New York, children, solely in New York.

Speaking of Only in New York jogs my memory of latest visitors indicators like one warning us to drive rigorously. That’s as a result of the life you save might belong to some pedestrian en path to take away his automobile from the parking area you’re on the lookout for.

For certain, solely in New York, children, solely in New York.
