Lily-Rose Depp, The Weeknd & Blackpink's Jennie in new trailer for 'The Idol'
HBO released another trailer for Euphoria creator Sam Levinson's The Idol, starring Lily-Rose Depp, The Weeknd, Blackpink's Jennie, Dan Levy, Troye Sivan, and Rachel Sennott, to name a few. The Idol, set to premiere in 2023.
The series follows Depp's Jocelyn, an up-and-coming pop idol, and her complicated relationship with self-help guru Tedros, played by The Weeknd. In the trailer, her team is worried about another "psychotic break" as she gets closer with the cult leader and rises in fame.
As Tedros blindfolds Jocelyn, he tells her that he needs "full control—no matter f--king what."
Though character descriptions haven't yet been released, it appears from the trailer that Jennie will be playing a fellow pop idol (which obviously isn't too far from her real life), while it seems like Levy, Sivan and Sennott will be playing various members of Jocelyn's team. Hank Azaria, Jane Adams, Suzanna Son, Eli Roth, Hari Nef, Da'Vine Joy Randolph, Mike Dean, Ramsey and Moses Sumney round out the main cast, with the late Anne Heche appearing in a recurring role.
