DUNE Star Timothee Chalamet Reveals The Advice He Got From His Hero: "No Hard Drugs, No Superhero Movies"

Timothee Chalamet's profile is set to raise considerably after Denis Villeneuve's Dune, but don't be surprised if the young actor decides to sidestep the predictable superhero franchise role!

Timothee Chalamet has been poised to hit it big in Hollywood for a while now after impressing in the likes of Call Me By Your Name and Little Women, but his lead role as Paul Atreides in Denis Villeneuve's upcoming Dune adaptation looks set to make him a household name.

When an actor reaches a certain level of fame, it almost seems inevitable that one of the major comic book franchises will come calling, and while most up-and-coming stars would jump at the chance to play a superhero, Chalamet may choose to take a different path - if he decides to follow the advice of one of his heroes, that is!

During an interview with Time.com, Chalamet revealed that he has a game-plan for staying level amid all the attention. “One of my heroes — I can’t say who or he’d kick my ass — he put his arm around me the first night we met and gave me some advice: No hard drugs, and no superhero movies.”

We have no idea who Chalamet is referring to here, but his advice sucks! In all seriousness, we can't imagine he'll actually make a conscious effort to avoid superhero roles moving forward, but even if he does, Paul Adreides does have superpowers (or a sort).

What do you guys think? Are there any specific comic book/superhero characters you could see Chalamet bringing to life on the big screen?
