Stranger Things‘ Steve Harrington and Parks and Recreation‘s Jean-Ralphio probably aren’t father and son (sorry, Internet conspiracy theorists!), but portrayers Joe Keery and Ben Schwartz may in fact share some DNA.
In a new Late Late Show With James Corden digital exclusive (a preview of which Schwartz teased on Instagram earlier this week), Keery and Schwartz sit down with Entertainment Tonight reporter Nischelle Turner to discuss the popular fan theory that Steve could actually be Jean-Ralphio’s father, since Stranger Things is set in the early 1980s and, beyond the eery resemblance, both shows also take place in Indiana. As it turns out, however, their similarities extend beyond their characters and to the actors themselves, prompting them to believe that they are somehow father and son in real life.
