James Buckley acting as a gangster when he was a kid is cracking people up

A clip of a very young James Buckley acting like a tiny hardman has left people cracking up.
The recently resurfaced clip dates all the way back to 2001, when he starred in an episode of sitcom ‘Orrible. You can see him in action here:
In an episode titled Two Men and a Bastard, The Inbetweeners star played Ryan - a young lad reunited with his dad Sean (played by Ricky Grover) - in the show, which also starred Johnny Vaughan.
The clip seems a baby-faced Buckley acting like a little gangster making threats, drinking underage and even walloping a bloke around the head with an empty Budweiser bottle. What would Jay say about that, eh?
Inbetweeners fans have been left in stitches over the clip, with many joking that it shows Jay was telling the truth all along.
One person wrote: “Damn he really has lived that life.”
Another said: “Imagine we got a series of young Jay and everything he ever bullshitted was true.”
Someone else joked: “So he wasn’t lying when he said, ‘you know what I use to be like with the old drink’.”
Buckley recently broke the hearts of Inbetweeners fans across the globe as he firmly ruled out ever reprising the role of Jay - saying ‘there’s not enough money in the world’ to tempt him.
Speaking on The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X back in October he was asked by the host: "If the people who wrote The Inbetweeners said 'we’ve got a script… It's basically what everyone's up to now, do you want to see it?' You’d say yes?"
Buckley, who played Jay for three series and two spin-off movies, answered simply: "No."
When Moyles hit back with: "What?! Would you not?" Buckley explained: "Not because I don't think I would have an amazing time doing it, because I know I would.
"I love the boys, I love the writers. Doing The Inbetweeners was the best job in the world.
"All we did was muck around all day long and they filmed us doing it, and at the end of the day, we might have had an episode, or a TV, you know, or a film or something. It was the best job in the world.
"But it might - you know, as I'm getting older - it's looking like it might be the only thing that I do professionally that is universally loved.
"There's not enough money in the world for me to spoil that."
