Roman Griffin Davis and Archie Yates are a delight!

The Jojo Rabbit rising stars stopped by ET Live this week to play a game of Jenga and answer an array of questions, including what advice they would give to aspiring child actors, what they would tell co-star Scarlett Johansson if she won an Oscar, and who they would want to take a picture with if they attend the Academy Awards in February.

 "Leonardo DiCaprio," said Davis, with Yates replying, "Who is he?"

After his co-star reminded him of who DiCaprio is, Yates quipped, "No, not him... I would probably choose Chris Hemsworth."

The young British actors star in Jojo Rabbit, a movie set during World War II that centers on a German boy, Jojo (Davis), whose imaginary friend is Adolf Hitler (played by the film's director, Taika Waititi). Johansson stars as Jojo's mother, who is hiding a young Jewish girl in the family's attic, alongside the most absurdly delightful cast of co-stars: Rebel Wilson, Stephen Merchant, Sam Rockwell, Thomasin McKenzie and Alfie Allen.

As for what they would tell Johannson if she took home a coveted Academy Award this year, for either Jojo or her celebrated starring turn in Marriage Story, Yates excitingly said, "Why, congratulations!"

When asked what movie makes Yates laugh the most, he said. "Probably the Ace Ventura films," before quoting the film: "Bumblebee Tuna, Bumblebee Tuna... If they do a reboot of Ace Ventura sign me up!"

Davis also revealed that when he was growing up he has his own imaginary friend -- the cast of Star Wars! He used to pretend that Anakin Skywalker was his brother, Yoda was his uncle and Darth Vader was his father.  

And when it comes to giving advice to fellow kids who aspire to become actors, Davis shared: "I think it's important to keep on trying and not give up and to have to take rejection [well], because before I got the part, I did 80 or so auditions. It's hard work and I think if you can't take rejection it's going to be harder for you."
