Timothée Chalamet is continuing his transformation into Bob Dylan!

The 28-year-old actor — who will star as the folk musician in the upcoming film A Complete Unknown — was photographed Sunday strolling around New York City's Chelsea neighborhood in another outfit reminiscent of Dylan's 20th-century wardrobe.

After last being seen in an old scarf and paperboy hat last week, Chalamet was photographed once more, this time rocking a dressier look from the world of Dylan.

On Sunday, the Dune star could be seen in new pics walking around with his hands in his pockets as he wore a black button-up, green pants, a brown suede jacket and a pair of shades to compliment his messy hair.

Around Chalamet were cars reminiscent of the '60s and '70s, as he stood in front of Hotel Chelsea for one scene in particular.

While not much is known about James Mangold’s upcoming biopic about Dylan, Chalamet appears to be committed to the wardrobe and the music.

Mangold, 60, previously confirmed that the actor will be singing as Dylan in the film, which follows a "young, 19-year-old Bob Dylan coming to New York with two dollars in his pocket" before "becoming a worldwide sensation within three years," the director previously shared with Collider last year.

"First being embraced into a family of folk music in New York and of course kind of outrunning him at a certain point as his star rises so beyond belief," he said of the plot, before calling the film "an interesting true story and about such an interesting moment in the American scene."

It will reportedly also feature on-screen portrayals of other stars of the time, including Woody Guthrie, Joan Baez and Pete Seeger.  Elle Fanning will play Dylan's love interest, Sylvie Russo, while Edward Norton will take on the role of Seeger.

"He was a total gem," the department shared on Facebook after his visit. "In town researching all things Bob Dylan for an upcoming biopic, he asked his tour guide if he could meet with the drama students who were working on their competition one act."

He also "sat down with them one on one, and talked acting and theater" with the students at the school. "After our guest left, our students had their final dress rehearsal. And they nailed it. Something must have inspired them," the post continued.

Chalamet's vocal coach Eric Vetro described the actor's dedication to the role in a recent interview with PEOPLE, noting that audiences are "going to be shocked because you're going to think you're hearing Bob Dylan sing."

"Once again, he just has this uncanny ability to not impersonate, but really breathe life into it," he explained. "He's embodying Bob Dylan and what he was like at that age."

Vetro added that going from Willy Wonka to Bob Dylan is a "completely different character, completely different voice, everything."

"He could turn on a dime. He's so talented that he is able to just switch into one role or the other really quickly," he said, comparing Chalamet's performance to "what Renée Zellweger did with Judy Garland in 2019's Judy.

A Complete Unknown currently does not have a release date.
