We will never know what Timothée Chalamet would have been like in “Barbie.”

The “Wonka” star talked about a cameo that never was during a recent appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

Chalamet confirmed the rumor that there had been discussions about him making a brief appearance in this year’s most popular film.

There was an idea for Saoirse Ronan and I to do a cameo in it,” Chalamet said. “I don’t know what the cameo would’ve been. I think it would’ve been one of the rejected Kens or Barbies. Not Alan. Maybe there was a reject French one along the way.”

Chalamet filmed “Wonka” on the same Warner Bros. UK set where “Barbie” was being filmed. Warner Bros. is owned by CNN’s parent company.
