It’s weird to realize that the youngest of the current generation of Hollywood may once have been part of now-prevalent internet culture. For instance, barring some occasional crossover by the likes of PewDiePie, YouTubers and traditional celebrities exist in mostly separate spheres, different stratums of pop culture. It’s why it’s so surprising to find out that some of Hollywood’s rising stars got their start modding Xbox 360 controllers in front of a camera in their bedroom.

Vice has uncovered a YouTube channel with videos dating back a good ten years named “ModdedController360.” As the name implies, the creator of this channel, who never showed his face but had the distinctive voice of an adolescent male, displayed his latest modifications and paint jobs on Xbox 360 controllers. Normally, this wouldn’t be news, if not for one particular detail: Vice believes this channel to be the property of Timothée Chalamet, star of recent box office smash Dune and soon-to-be the next face of Willy Wonka.

Chalamet had his first major appearance on screen as a cameo in Law & Order in 2009, speaking in a voice extremely similar to the one in these videos. Additionally, Vice uncovered photos of a young Chalamet sitting in a chair identical to the one shown in the videos, as well as the exact same scar on his left ring finger.

After Vice published their article, Chalamet acknowledged the channel in an interview, adding that he sold the controllers he painted for a few bucks. If anyone bought a tiger-striped Xbox 360 controller in 2010, good news, you’re the owner of an official Chalament collectible item!
