Spider-Man: No Way Home star Tom Holland calls fellow actor Timothee Chalamet to see if he is “standing up, or sitting down” live on the radio.
Spider-Man: No Way Home star Tom Holland prank calls fellow actor Timothee Chalamet in a new video. Both Holland and Chalamet have, of course, become two of the world’s biggest and highly sought-after Hollywood stars in the last couple of years. Since Holland began his stint as the fan-favorite superhero Spider-Man in the MCU, he has made appearances in many successful films including Netflix’s The Devil All The Time and most recently Uncharted which premieres on February 18.
Chalamet, similar to Holland, is a young actor who gains masses of fans with every film he releases. Since his Oscar nomination for 2017’s Call Me By Your Name, Chalamet has seen a slew of success in films such as Lady Bird and Little Women. 2021 was a particularly successful year for Chalamet, releasing The French Dispatch, Dune, which has been nominated for 10 Academy Awards, and Netflix’s Don’t Look Up all in quick succession. Currently, Chalamet is busy filming the Willy Wonka origin story, simply titled Wonka.
In a new video posted by BBC Radio One, Holland prank calls Chalamet live on the air. While promoting his upcoming film Uncharted, Holland sat down with BBC host Greg James to play “Sit Down, Stand Up.” The game is simple: call a friend and guess if they will be sitting down or standing up when they pick up. During the game, Holland decided to call Chalamet, guessing that he would be sitting down. Holland’s reasoning was that as Chalamet is currently on set in London, so “if he’s answering his phone, he’ll be sitting down.” As it turns out, Holland was quite correct (for a moment), with Chalamet stating “oh yeah, oh no, I’m fully sat down, but now I’m standing up.” Once the game had been explained to Chalamet, the two chit-chatted for a moment before making plans to meet up in London later in the week. See the full video below:
Chalamet was not the only celebrity that Holland and James managed to get in touch with while playing “Sit Down, Stand Up.” The two also called Holland’s neighbor, British rapper Stormzy, as well as climate activist Greta Thunberg. Holland also attempted to call fellow Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield before realizing that Garfield was in the US, where it was 4:45 in the morning. The video does include a fun clip at the end from another BBC interview with Garfield in which he states that he got a call from Holland in the middle of the night, which he didn’t answer. As Garfield muses on what Holland could have wanted with him, host Ali Plumb explains the concept of “Stand Up, Sit Down.”
Whether the game was silly or not, many fans have been delighted to see two of their favorite stars interacting as if they were best friends. The two stars show much love towards each other, and it is certainly lovely to watch. While fans currently cannot see a film where the two appear together, they will soon be able to get their Holland fix when Uncharted premieres later this week and their Chalamet fix when Wonka opens next year.
