Hair ye, hair ye! Two of our mane men, Timothée Chalamet and Robert Pattinson, are starring in a Netflix drama together—and not just any kind of drama, the best kind of drama: PERIOD DRAMA!

Deadline reports that Timo and RPatz (do people call him Timo? And do we still say RPatz?) will appear together in Netflix’s feature The King, based on Shakespeare's Henry IV [Parts 1 and 2] and Henry V. It's-okay-to-think-he's-cute-because-he's-22-year-old Chalamet is playing Prince Hal aka young Henry V, and Pattinson will play French prince The Dauphin. Oh la la!

Also featured in this already iconic film: Joel Edgerton (Falstaff), Ben Mendelsohn (King Henry IV), and Lily-Rose Depp (French Princess Catherine, who marries Henry V). If the Netflix version follows the Shakespearean plotline, there will be a lot of dramatic drama! Brooding! War! Medieval garb!
