Now that Schumer has her foot in the door at Netflix, she joked that she's looking to land a role in one of their beloved scripted series. "Very happy to be a part of the Netflix family for this special,” the Snatched star said in a statement. “Maybe now they will look at my Stranger Things audition tape to play the demogorgon for season two."
