Father and son reunion! When Stranger Things’
Steve Harrington (Joe Kerry) and Parks and Recreation
’s Jean-Ralphio Saperstein (Ben Schwartz) finally came face to face
, things got a little, well, strange. The pair met for the first time when ET’s Nischelle Turner interviewed them them on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
With all the speculation swirling that Steve might actually be Jean-Ralphio’s dad, the two actors decided to face the rumors head-on.
“To be honest, I don’t understand why we’re doing this,” Ben told Nischelle.
“Listen, there’s just some fan theories that are out there, and we just want to explore them,” Nischelle explained.
But it quickly became apparent that Ben and Joe had a lot in common when they finally met. Not only were they wearing identical handmade outfits, but they shook hands in the same unique way, got settled by crossing and re-crossing their legs, and had the same impromptu freestyle dance moves.
The pair were slightly unsettled to learn that their shows take place in nearby towns in Indiana. When asked what the weirdest thing they’ve ever done is, the duo replied in unison, “Hit the monster from the Upside Down with a bat then chilled on the couch.”
Suddenly convinced that they were, in fact, father and son, the actors exited the interview early to “catch up on some lost time.”
