Jacob Tremblay Wears Armani, Meets Droids at 2016 Oscars
Posted on March 6, 2016
Nine year old Jacob Tremblay walked the red carpet at the 2016 Oscars like an old pro. His people prepped him flawlessly and when Ryan Seacrest asked him who he was wearing he replied crisply, "Giorgio Armani." This prompted Seacrest to ponder whether Armani had ever custom made a tuxedo in that size.
Jacob may not have been nominated for an Oscar, but his star really shined as part of awards season. He co-starred in Room, which won Brie Larson a Best Actress statue. Jacob is a huge Star Wars fan, which helped him and Brie bond before doing the movie in which they spent a great deal of time together.
At the Oscars, his eyes grew big as saucers when he saw BB-8, R2-D2 and C-3PO on stage. He took selfies with just about every major celebrity, from Sylvester Stallone to Leonardo di Caprio to Jennifer Lawrence. After all, who could turn down such a cute little boy?
Jacob is doing a very funny cameo on the hit comedy Last Man on Earth. In the next episode he plays the younger version of Jason Sudeikis' brother, Will Forte the star of the show. In this scene Jason is an astronaut who has crashed in the ocean. He dreams of his brother taunting him just as he did when they were young. Jacob really lets him have it. Take a look:
