. Timothée Chalamet on Paying Homage to Edward Scissorhands in the Coolest Super Bowl Ad of the Year « JO LEE MAGAZINE

Vogue – The script for Edward Scissorhands describes Tim Burton’s titular creation as a slim, pale-faced young man with “wildly trimmed” hair and “eyes so big [that] they seem like two huge unfathomable pools.” Of course, this role was originally played by Johnny Depp in the 1990 cult classic, but the description could just as easily fit Timothée Chalamet.

A new Cadillac ad featuring the Call Me by Your Name star imagines what life would look like in 2021 for Edward’s son, Edgar, who has inherited his father’s scissor hands and all of the headaches that come with them. Unable to finish simple tasks like riding the bus or catching a football without wreaking havoc, Edgar’s frustrations begin to wear on him and his mother, Kim Boggs (Winona Ryder, reprising her role from the film). With some assistance from the Cadillac Lyriq’s hands-free driving technology, Edgar finally is able to get behind the wheel.
