Julianne Moore, Natalie Portman, and Charles Melton take part in a ‘May December’ Town Hall

May December

Charles Melton’s role in May December has been critically acclaimed. But was he too hot to play Joe in the Netflix movie? Its filmmaker, Todd Haynes, initially thought so.

“When Todd said that I was too good-looking or whatever, I thought, ‘That was very sweet,’” Melton said.

“I consider that the highest compliment, host Jess Cagle chimed in.” “Like, you’re just too good-looking for this, I was like, ‘Dang, OK.’”

Many of us are breathing a sigh of relief that the Carol (2015) director ultimately selected Melton, who has quickly gone from CW Riverdale teen heartthrob to Oscar contender. He starred alongside two Oscar winners in Julianne Moore and Natalie Portman, who have garnered praise for their performances as well.

During the May December Town Hall hosted by Jess Cagle and Julia Cunningham, stars Moore, Portman, and Melton also discussed embodying real characters and the movies Haynes sent them for inspiration. Check out the full Town Hall airing on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy channel during the times below and on the SiriusXM app starting Friday, January 12, at 2 pm ET.
