When I was about six years old, my mom bought an "As Seen on TV" contraption called a Flowbee and used it to chop my hair into a floppy blonde bowl cut. It was heinous. Fortunately, it seems Netflix provided enough funds for their upcoming medieval drama, The King, to miraculously make star Timothée Chalamet's bowl cut . . . dare I say . . . hot?
In the first trailer for the film above, the Little Women actor plays Hal, a rebellious prince who's turned his back on royalty despite being heir to the English throne. But his low-key lifestyle is shattered when his tyrannical father dies, leaving Hal crowned King Henry V. As he navigates the perilous ups and downs of politics within his kingdom, as well as the debt of war his father left behind, Hal is forced to evolve into someone he swore he'd never be.
In addition to Chalamet and his bowl cut, The King also stars Lily-Rose Depp, Ben Mendelsohn, Robert Pattinson, and Joel Edgerton. Keep an eye out for the movie when it begins streaming on Netflix this Fall.
