Viral photos of Timothée Chalamet out in New York City this weekend have prompted Us to do a double take.

The 28-year-old actor looked like the spitting image of Bob Dylan on Sunday, March 24, when he wore what can only be described as the famed musician’s 1960s uniform: a brown suede jacket and dark sunglasses.

Chalamet teamed the iconic pieces with a navy button down shirt, olive green trousers, brown leather belt and brown suede boots.

Earlier in the day, the actor wore the same brown jacket with a pair of blue jeans and beat-up cowboy boots.

Chalamet wore the convincing costume while filming the upcoming biopic A Complete Unknown, in which he plays Dylan. The film follows the musician from the beginning of his career as a 19-year-old aspiring musician to his ascent as one of the most defining artists of the 20th century.

Chalamet hasn’t solely relied on his clothes and hair to get into character. He has also been working closely with a voice coach, Eric Vetro, to emulate Dylan’s voice, as well as a movement coach, Polly Bennett, to nail his gait. Vetro and Bennett both trained Chalamet’s Dune: Part Two co-star, Austin Butler, for his role as Elvis Presley in the 2022 movie Elvis.

It’s breathing new life into that voice that we know so well.”

In addition to Chalamet, the film features an impressive cast including Elle Fanning, Monica Barbaro, Nick Offerman, Benedict Cumberbatch and Edward Norton. Its release date has yet to be announced.
