NEWS OF THE WEEK: Wonka director praises Timothée Chalamet's 'Bing Crosby' singing voice

The Dune actor has rarely shown off his vocal abilities in his roles to date, but according to Paul King, fans will be impressed with his vocals. "(Chalamet)'s got a beautiful singing voice. The person it reminded me of was Bing Crosby," he told Total Film. "There's quite a range, because it does go from a couple of bigger, showstopper-y sort of things, to moments of real, pure emotion and he can do it all... I'm going to sound like a crazed fan." Paul King / Total Film.
