Timothée Chalamet jokes he could have been ‘reject French’ Ken in ‘Barbie’

The “Wonka” star discussed a missed opportunity for a cameo during a recent appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

“There was an idea for Saoirse Ronan and me to do a cameo in it,” Chalamet said. “I don’t know what the cameo would’ve been. I think it would’ve been one of the rejected Kens or Barbies. Not Alan. Maybe there was a reject French one along the way.”

Chalamet filmed “Wonka” on the same Warner Bros. UK set where “Barbie” was being filmed. Warner Bros. is owned by CNN’s parent company.

“Barbie” director Greta Gerwig had previously worked with Ronan and Chalamet in her 2017 film, “Lady Bird.” She shared with “Hollywood First Look” that she attempted to reunite the two actors on screen in “Barbie.”X X X X

“They both couldn’t do it,” Gerwig said. “Although Timothée did come by the set and then said, ‘I should have been in this,’ And I was like, ‘I know! Why aren’t you in this?'”

“Wonka” is currently playing in theaters.
