Benedict Cumberbatch to join Timothee Chalamet’s movie A complete Unknown based on Bob Dylan’s biopic
Benedict Cumberbatch has been cast to portray Pete Seeger in the upcoming Bob Dylan biopic A Complete Unknown, director James Mangold told Deadline in a new interview. The movie centers around Dylan’s groundbreaking electric set at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965.
As a legendary folk musician and longtime influence to Dylan, in regards to both his music and activism, Seeger plays a crucial part in Dylan’s real-life story. He was an early supporter of the then-rising artist, helped his debut album land at Columbia, and invited him to perform at Newport Folk Festival.
Last month, it was revealed that Timothée Chalamet will play Dylan while Monica Barbaro has been tapped to portray Joan Baez. Also joining the cast is Elle Fanning as Sylvie Russo, the university student and artist who was Dylan’s love interest in the early ’60s.
