The actor was just 11 years old when he played Carl Gallagher, who was part of the infamous dysfunctional Gallagher family.
Meanwhile, Lil Xan, real name Nicholas Leanos, blew up on YouTube and SoundCloud thanks to his muddled, gloomy audio aesthetic.
His records such as ‘Betrayed’ and ‘Slingshot’ have millions of views and plays on YouTube and SoundCloud.
His stage moniker was given to him by his friend for his addiction to the prescription drug Xanax. But since turning to music, he has kicked his Xanax addiction.
And the two artists have often made headlines because of their eerily similar facial features.

In fact, the duo played along with their fans when the rapper invited Cutkosky to join him on stage during his show in LA.
The music artist surprised his fans by bringing the Shameless actor out on stage for a performance of ‘The Man' from his Total Xanarchy album.
The rapper told TMZ he was friends with Cutkosky in real life and had plans to work with the actor in the near future.
