Timothée Chalamet is currently living the dream of anyone who stans The Office. The Call Me by Your Name actor appears alongside both Steve Carell and Amy Ryan (aka Holly) in the upcoming movie Beautiful Boy, so naturally, the Dunder-Mifflin crew is coming up a lot in press interviews. And in one recent interview at the Toronto International Film Festival, Carell let Chalamet in on a secret about the The Office theme song.
In an interview with IndieWire, published on September 11th, Chalamet reminisced about watching reruns of the comedy with his dad when he was a teenager.
That prompted Carell to reveal that the cast actually voted for the TV series’ now-iconic opening.
Chalamet, who is a well-documented Office fan, was apparently excited to learn this new detail. IndieWire wrote that “Chalamet’s eyes lit up” when Carell shared this revelation. During the Beautiful Boy press tour, the young actor has often geeked out over being able to work with both Carell and Ryan. On September 7th, People reported that Chalamet had been a bit nervous to work with the two actors.
To be honest, we’d probably feel the same way if we ever met Michael Scott.
Beautiful Boy comes out October 12th. Until then, we’ll be rewatching The Office, as usual.
