'Stranger Things' Star Joe Keery And 'Parks And Rec' Actor Ben Schwartz Aren't Entirely Sure They're Characters Are Unrelated

Are Steve Harrington and Jean-Ralphio related?

Warning: There’s a tiny little ‘Stranger Things’ spoiler in the video

Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ is undoubtedly every bingewatcher’s favourite show at the moment - and with popularity often comes conspiracy theories and quirky fan speculations.

One such theory fans have been shouting about is the idea that Steve from ‘Stranger Things’, played by Joe Keery, could actually be the father of a character from a completely different show.

These TV enthusiasts say Keery’s similar appearance to Ben Schwartz, who plays Jean-Ralphio Saperstein in ‘Parks And Recreation’, might be more than just a coincidence.

Both shows are set in Indiana, and the two characters do have some slightly similar mannerisms - however Keery and Schwartz visited ‘The Late Late Show With James Corden’ to quell any rumours that were spreading.

Or, at least, they intended to. But that all changed when they showed up dressed exactly the same and realised just how similar their characters are.
