Netflix sensation Stranger Things left viewers with a lot of questions and a lot of fan theories. One of these theories, as discussed by Uproxx, is that Steve, played by Joe Keery and his flawless head of hair, is the father of Jean-Ralphio Saperstein from Parks & Rec. The hair definitely has something to do with it, right?
Uproxx also points out that both shows take place in Indiana. Stranger Things in Hawkins, and Parks and Rec in Pawnee. Whaaaat. After fan theories started circling that Jean-Ralphio is the love child of Steve and Nancy, Ben Schwartz, who played Jean-Ralphio, hilariously confirmed that he is, in fact, Steve’s father on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
Anyway, the two actors clearly heard all the buzz and arranged an amazing, twinning meet-up. With impeccably coordinated hair and outfits, the Internet just about exploded. I guess stranger things have happened. (Pun 100% intended.)
