Since the released of the hit Netflix series created by the Duffer brothers, fans couldn’t help notice that there is a striking resemblance between Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) and “Parks and Rec’s” Jean-Ralphio (Ben Schwartz). They both share similar looking hair, the pronounced nose and eyebrow arch, which led many to come up with the fan theory that Steve is Jean-Ralphio’s dad.
Now, the truth has finally come out thanks to Schwartz who has admitted (or implied) that indeed, Nancy’s boyfriend is the “Parks and Rec’s” character’s father.
In a hilarious video for “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” Schwartz spoke out about Jean-Ralphio’s relationship with Steve and even went into detail about how he was conceived. He also explained how Jean-Ralphio would spend most of his time in the upside-down, was “super chill” running that place and was even friends with the monsters.
“I’m assuming that there’s a 100 percent chance of me being on ‘Stranger Things’ Seasons 2 through 100,” Schwartz adds. We wouldn’t have it any other way!
And that’s not all, even “Parks and Rec” creator Michael Schur confirmed their relationship on Twitter.
@latelateshow We will neither confirm nor deny that Steve is Jean-Ralphio's real dad. But yes, Steve is definitely his real dad.
