It’s rather surprising to discover that the most youthful of today’s Hollywood cohort could have once been associated with the now-dominant online culture. Except for occasional overlaps like PewDiePie, YouTubers and traditional celebrities largely inhabit different realms within pop culture. This is why it’s astonishing to learn that some of the emerging stars in Hollywood initiated their journey by customizing Xbox 360 controllers on camera from their own rooms.

Vice has revealed the presence of a YouTube channel dating back a decade under the moniker of “ModdedController360.” The individual behind this channel, who concealed their identity but possessed a distinctive voice of a young male, exhibited their latest controller modifications and paint jobs. Under normal circumstances, this wouldn’t have raised eyebrows, if not for a noteworthy twist: Vice speculates that this channel belongs to Timothée Chalamet, known for his recent hit movie Dune and upcoming portrayal as Willy Wonka.

Chalamet made his debut on-screen in a minor role in Law & Order in 2009, showcasing a voice remarkably similar to the one heard in these videos. Furthermore, Vice uncovered photos of a young Chalamet seated in a chair identical to the one featured in the videos, bearing the exact same scar on his left ring finger.

Following Vice’s coverage, Chalamet acknowledged the channel in an interview, mentioning that he sold the painted controllers for a few bucks. If you happen to own a tiger-striped Xbox 360 controller from 2010, congratulations, you possess a genuine Chalament collectible!
