    People online are dumb.

    Not sure why he is working with Woody Allen though.

    EDIT: This no longer makes sense without the context of the original text of the opening post.

    Seconded. There is literally not a single productive thing that could come from this.

    Because working with him could potentially boost one’s career? But not in this political climate, certainly.

    I don’t judge actors for working with people like Woody Allen simply because there’s no way to know whether or not the actor was aware of allegations at the time they signed onto the film. If they start publicly defending a collaborator such as Allen when confronted about the allegations, well, that’s an entirely different story.

    Chalamet in particular has been dodging questions about the Allen film, which I believe is fair considering the promotion of that film hasn’t begun yet. His most recent response when asked about the Allen film was pretty revealing:

    Interviewer: Any qualms Timothée about working with Woody Allen? I mean your next film has him as the director and as you know he’s been accused by his daughter of sexual abuse. He’s never been charged, never been arrested, none of that. But I wonder whether you think about it and whether you ask, how has he escaped the #MeToo revolution?

    TC: It’s going to be really important for me to talk about that and to really…there’s….I hesitate to talk about it right now because what I say will only, it’s only going to anger…people. So when that film comes out – if it comes out – that’s gonna be really important to talk about but that’s not the time right now.

    If he thinks his future statement will “anger people,” then he either foresees (1) angering Allen / Amazon / etc by speaking out against Allen or (2) angering fans and the public by defending Allen. We’re reaching a point where no decent publicist would let a client defend Allen in the press, so…

    Anyways, it’s his comment “if it comes out” that I find particularly interesting. I wonder if Amazon is contemplating not releasing it, or just giving a lowkey release directly on their streaming service. It wouldn’t surprise me at all.

    The Allen news is not new.  Between Call Me by Your Name and Lady Bird, Chalamet’s career was doing just fine. Thread deletion can only be done by a moderator.

    Then we’re screwed. They don’t pay attention. We just have to let it die.

    Chalamet has been on my radar since Homeland. He played a character that was very close to Brody’s daughter, notably the most annoying character in the history of television. I had a feeling he was going to become something.

    When I watched Miss Stevens at the end of 2016, I kind of told myself “I told you so!” He’s pretty good in that; a role that could have been a disaster in the hands of a more self-serious young actor. Have yet to see any of his three films from 2017.

    I disagree. Happy to know this information. If you’re still working with Woody even in the current #MeToo climate, knowing all that we know about that creep, on a level of human decency, how stupid can you be?! Mira Sorvino apologized, it took Greta Gerwig a couple damn tries but eventually she got on board with anti-Woody train, and Ellen Page called working with him the “biggest mistake of my life.” Timothee, Elle Fanning, Jude Law, Diego Luna, Liev Schreiber, Rebecca Hall, and Selena Gomez- ALL of those people are sell-out garbage to me from now on, since they clearly don’t need to work with him, because their careers are already doing fine, especially that of Oscar contender Timothee! Don’t tell me, “It is a Woody Allen movie, so what if he’s a pedophile, those people need the work.” To which I reply in advance, there are TONS of struggling indie filmmakers and visionaries who would do anything to have any one of those talented actors (excluding Gomez obviously) in a film of theirs. Those actors have the name recognition to pick whatever project they want, including countless ones that do not have a pedophile writer and director. This is completely inexcusable, every one of them is basically saying “f**k you” to Dylan Farrow and every other victim of any kind of harassment of Woody’s.

    Still, I won’t boycott their movies like I am Woody’s, Casey Affleck’s, and James Franco’s, but I am deeply disappointed and disgusted by this heartbreaking news. 🙁 Yes, just to clarify, I am now rooting for Daniel Kaluuya to win SAG over Chalamet. It isn’t like Kaluuya could work with Woody even if he wanted to, since Woody is a racist who hates working with black actors and actresses. Pattinson for Spirits too… Dammit Timothee! I hope the guy at least is getting paid good for his whoring.

    This is news to ME. I thought “A Rainy Day In New York” was the original title of Wonder Wheel when I read about it from an article from earlier this year. I got confused, but now that I know this is a different movie that stars an actor as genuinely talented as Timothee I’m pissed off. Like Cate Blanchett, Sally Hawkins, and Emma Stone, I still respect Timothee as a genuinely talented actor, but that doesn’t change my frustration with all of those performers for having appeared in movies of his from recent years, including Timothee, who by appearing in the Woody film has cost himself any credibility he would have had in this #MeToo revelation. Shame, I would have liked him to be an ally. 🙁

    Wow, so Chalamet is being slammed on Twitter for working with Woody Allen. I’m seeing tweets from people saying Timothee is “just as bad” as Woody Allen and other sexual abusers and saying they are equal because he “supports” Allen. I’m even seeing death threats and people saying they hope he dies and that he’s trash etc.

    What are everyones thoughts on this whole thing?

    Thanks for the info, I hadn’t heard he was starring in the new Woody Allen movie. Talk about pathetic, insulting, and unnecessary! At least he isn’t an abuser himself like Oldman and especially Franco. Still, it sucks that he’s an enabler. Such tone-deafness annoys the hell out of me. The only way he, Fanning, Law, Luna, and the rest of the cast can earn forgiveness is to donate all the money they made and will make off of the film to RAINN, the “Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network.”

    I meant that the allegations against Woody Allen have been very much in the public eye since 1992, with renewed interest since 2014.

    I honestly can’t even tell if teridax is being serious or just mocking the kinds of people who would react like that, and it’s driving me bonkers.

    ——————

    At any rate, I think it’s a bit premature to be dragging any of the Rainy Day cast. They’re still caught up in last season’s film cycle. I wouldn’t be surprised if some/all of them refuse to promote the film, donate their salaries, and/or outright denounce the project. But none of that will happen until attention is shifted from 2017’s films to 2018’s projects.

    My gut tells me the film is going to be very quietly released and that none of the stars will promote it. We’ll get some “I didn’t know when I signed the contract, and now that I do know I wish I’d never done it” type statements and they’ll all wash their hands of it… which is pretty much the best they can do now that it’s already been filmed.
