Chalamet’s most obvious talent is the one that he showcases in front of the whole world – acting. He originally got his start in 2014’s Men, Women & Children, but his career would only grow from there. Getting a role in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is also particularly impressive, even though he had a rather small role as Matthew McConaughey’s son.

However, Chalamet really impressed the world with the talent displayed in his Oscar-nominated performance in Call Me by Your Name. His roles in Lady Bird, Little Women, Don’t Look Up, and Dune only solidified his star status as he continues to attract major roles.

Fallon’s The Tonight Show uploaded a compilation of different celebrities showcasing their “hidden talent” on YouTube. The video includes a look at stars, including Cara Delevingne, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Charlie Puth. However, Chalamet showed off a particularly impressive hidden talent that both the host and the studio audience loved.

“It said on your resumé, your acting resumé, you put things on there besides acting, skills that you could do,” Fallon said. “One of them, I think, was dance. Maybe one of them was chess, I want to say?”

Chalamet responded: “It was random. My mom used to fill out my resumé, so they have special skills when you go in for auditions. Like, no casting director is gonna be like, ‘This kid plays chess! Let’s put him in a movie.’ (laughs) But, it was a lot. It was like chess, bike riding, swimming, like normal s***.”

The actor repeatedly apologized for swearing on television. Fallon joked that Chalamet cost NBC a lot of money in fees for the profanity.

Fallon continued: “One of the things we saw on there was juggling.”

“Juggling, yeah. I used to be able to know – maybe I know,” as Fallon pulled out juggling balls from behind his desk. “But you have juggling balls right here. (laughs)”

Chalamet tried out his hidden talent on television in front of a live audience, juggling the balls with ease. The crowd applauded, and Fallon was absolutely impressed with his ability to complete the talent on television.
