The Poughkeepsie-born indie darling is the star of ‘Lean on Pete’ – and a Dior Homme campaign
Charlie Plummer is what they, in the movie business, call “an indie darling”. The Cold Spring-born, New York-based actor has, so far, only acted in independent titles, taking on especially challenging roles – such as John Paul Getty III, for instance, who gets kidnapped by Italian mobsters (All the Money in the World), and a boy who bonds with an aging racehorse before finding out he’s destined for the slaughterhouse (Lean on Pete).
Having just been cast in Dior Homme’s David Sims-shot SS18 campaign alongside The Pet Shop Boys, Plummer (who’s no relation to Christopher, by the way) has three films coming out this year: Words on Bathroom Walls, Behold My Heart and Clovehitch – a suspense thriller starring Dylan McDermott (The Perks of Being a Wallflower). Despite his somewhat downbeat filmography, Plummer has already landed an award – the Marcello Mastroianni Best Young Actor Award for his role in Lean On Pete – making it clear that he’s destined for greatness in 2018 and beyond.
