The X Factor doucheband Emblem3 — who L.A. Reid hailed as “America’s Next Pop Sensation” last night — has some surprising Hollywood connections. THR reports that the uncle of doucheband members Wesley and Keaton Stromberg is Robert Stromberg, the Academy Award-winning production designer of Avatar and the director of Maleficent starring Angelina Jolie.
Ever since the Huntington Beach trio Emblem 3 performed their first audition song, “Sunset Blvd.,” on X Factor, the group has presented itself as a couple of surfer dudes from a “small California town.”
While the surfing part is definitely true, the group — comprised of the forever shirtless Drew Chadwick and brothers Wesley and Keaton Stromberg — has not yet revealed their surprising Hollywood connections. Namely, their father William Stromberg, a Grammy-nominated composer who has worked on A-list television shows like Lost, and their uncle Robert Stromberg, who has won Academy Awards for his work as a production designer for Avatar and Alice in Wonderland.
In addition to his work in art direction, Robert Stromberg is currently directing Angelina Jolie in her forthcoming film, Maleficent. His other credits on IMDb Pro include The Hunger Games, Water for Elephants, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Shutter Island, 2012, Tropic Thunder and The Good Shephard.
