In an exclusive sneak peek at Tuesday’s Billy on the Street, Tremblay joins host Billy Eichner on a mission to remind passersby of the youngster’s bona fides.
The first person that the pair comes across isn’t even aware of who Tremblay is—big mistake.
“Sir, this is Jacob Tremblay,” Eichner says as he introduces the two. “You know he has a Critics’ Choice Award.”
“Wow, congratulations,” Anthony says to a thankful Tremblay. “For what?” Anthony asks.
“Room!” Tremblay sweetly replies.
“Which movie?” Anthony further questions.
“Room, with Brie Larson!” Eichner, 38, explains of Tremblay, who earned a Critics’ Choice Award for his breakout role.
“Oh, I haven’t seen that,” says Anthony, a self-professed documentary fan.
At the end of the duo’s stroll—after encountering numerous adult folk who witnessed the young actor’s work in Room—Eichner points out another young boy on the corner to Tremblay.
“Jacob, there’s another child,” Eichner says to a giggling Tremblay. “Jacob, there’s another child. But he doesn’t have another Critics’ Choice Award.”
Tremblay’s response: “Doesn’t mean he’s not cool!”
Billy on the Street airs Tuesdays (10:30 p.m. ET) on truTV.
