Bob Dylan Refuses to Watch Dog Ass TV Shows

“I’m not a fan of packaged programs or news shows,” said the Grammy winner.

Cate Blanchett (and soon-to-be Timothée Chalamet) turned into Bob Dylan for the sake of cinema, but the ‘Tangled Up in Blue’ singer-songwriter has no grasp of modern television.

Dylan shared his favorite rewatches instead of new series in a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal.

“‘Coronation Street’, ‘Father Brown’ and some early ‘Twilight Zones’. I know they’re dated, but I feel right at home,” Dylan said. “I’m not a fan of packaged programs or news shows. I never look at anything smelly or nasty. Nothing gross, nothing dog ass.”

Dylan went on to list his favorite musicians, including Metallica, Zac Deputy, Wu-Tang, Eminem, Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave, along with “anyone with a feel for words and language, anyone whose vision matches mine.”

The Grammy winner added that his views on modern technology, particularly social media, are torn. While social media “can bring happiness to a lot of people,” there are still pitfalls on the internet.

“Some even discover love there. It’s fantastic if you’re a sociable person; The lines of communication are wide open. You can reshape anything, erase memories and change history,” Dylan said. “But they can also divide us and divide us.”

Dylan’s comments appear to echo Oscar-nominated Chalamet’s comments earlier this year. The Bones and All actor, who is set to play a young Dylan in upcoming musical biopic Going Electric, similarly said people “can find [their] tribe” online, but he “can’t imagine what it’s like to grow up today without the onslaught of social media.”

“I’m not judging,” Chalamet said. “I think it’s hard to be alive now. I think societal collapse is in the air.”

Chalamet recently confirmed that “Going Electric” remains in full swing. After the 2020 film, directed by Ford v. Ferrari boss James Mangold, Going Electric has been shelved amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The film follows musician Dylan (Chalamet) as he rises to fame in the folk music scene.

“I kept preparing, which was one of the greatest gifts I’ve received,” Chalamet said in a Variety cover story. “It was a wonderful experience to dive into this world, whether we make it or not. But without giving anything away – because I don’t want to pre-empt anyone and obviously things have to come together officially – the wind that is blowing is in a very positive direction.”

Chalamet revealed in a GQ cover story that he rented a house in Woodstock, New York, in preparation for impersonating Dylan. The Call Me By Your Name star also visited Dylan’s former homes in New York City to read the memoir Chronicles: Volume One and met with Inside Llewyn Davis director Joel Coen for more insight into the folk scene obtainable in the 1960s.

In terms of fictional features, the life of Bob Dylan was last explored in Todd Haynes’ 2007 experimental “I’m Not There,” in which Blanchett played a version of Dylan. In 2019, Martin Scorsese directed the documentary “Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese,” chronicling Bob Dylan’s 1975 tour.
