Stars, they're just like us. How do we know? In this instance it's because they're as obsessed with Stranger Things as we are. Aaron Paul stopped by The Tonight Show and talked all things Duffer Brothers with Jimmy Fallon.
"Oh my god," Paul said. "One of the best things I've ever seen."
Paul, who currently stars in Netflix's Bojack Horseman and Hulu's The Path, said he got his mitts on the look book Matt and Ross Duffer, the show's creators, made for the show and he was astounded by the whole thing. "I just can't believe people passed on it," he said on the show's potential homes before it landed on Netflix.
Paul's love of Stranger Things doesn't stop at the look book. He loves the kid stars. "I'm obsessed with them," he told Fallon. Hey, same.
Paul's love of Stranger Things even landed him an interview with Eleven herself, Millie Bobby Brown. "I was terrified," he said of his assignment. "She's the best…But I was so terrified. She was on a family vacation Spain and I was like, ‘I've got to make this good'…She gets on the phone with her cute little accent…She's far more articulate than I and I was terrified."
"My wife and I said that we'd want to adopt her…she said that we could," Paul said.
Now that'd be a family.
The Emmy winner further gushed about Brown on his Instagram after his chat with her. "Had the absolute pleasure to interview the brilliant, articulate and absolutely adorable @milliebobby_brown the other day," he wrote. "She of course exceeded all of my expectations. If you have seen Stranger Things then you know how amazing this young lady is. If you haven't seen the show you need to get on that as soon as possible. Millie, you're the best. Thanks for sitting down and discussing life with me. Love to you and your family. Interview is in my bio. Check it out!!"
Stranger Things mania is still spreading around the world. There are theories on top of theories—including a very fun one about Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) being the father of Jean-Ralphio from Parks and Recreation. Jean-Ralphio himself Ben Schwartz addressed it with the help of James Corden's Late Late Show. Parks and Recreation co-creator Mike Schur confirmed the theory on Twitter.
"We will neither confirm nor deny that Steve is Jean-Ralphio's real dad. But yes, Steve is definitely his real dad," Schur tweeted.
We're going to say this is now canon, so… deal with it.
Stranger Things season one is now streaming on Netflix.
