Jimmy Fallon Bought That Timothée Chalamet Puppet Because of Course He Did

The Timothée Chalamet content drought has finally gotten to Jimmy Fallon’s head. Over a month after people cared, Fallon and The Tonight Show team reached an agreement with the incredible puppet designer to purchase the infamously creepy Timothée Chalamet ventriloquist puppet — likely for much less than the original $122, 795. So, step one was purchasing the doll. Step two, create content. But in lieu of, uh, that, Fallon just reads off The Tonight Show book-club list in Timothée the Puppet’s French accent. Yeah, he knows Timothée Chalamet doesn’t have a French accent. (He also pretends that he hasn’t seen Call Me By Your Name, but everyone including Jane from Big Little Lies has seen it by now.) Like most ventriloquist puppets, Timothée is a little rude. He gets frustrated when guest Fred Armisen talks about Los Espookys with a Spanish accent. They fall into a French-accented duet about joie de vivre. Fred calls the puppet by his name and the puppet calls Fred by his.
