Stranger Thing star Joe Keery will shave his head if David Harbour wins a Golden Globe

Joe Keery, one of the stars of Stranger Things, has said that he will shave his head if co-star David Harbour wins a Golden Globe.

Stranger Things is of course a huge hit for Netflix, and Keery, whose character Steve started out as a quasi-antagonist, has quickly become a fan favourite, thanks to his charm, humour, and impressive 80s hair.

One of his co-stars on the show, David Harbour, has recently received a Golden Globe nomination for the role of Jim Hopper. Apparently finding this quite unbelievable, Keery commented on one of Harbour’s Instagram posts about the nomination, saying, “If you win David the Duffer’s get to shave my head.”

This would of course be a big deal for the fan base and one audience member commented on the same post in response to Keery, saying: “If you let them do this you will break the hearts of so many fans.

Check Out This Beautiful “Stranger Things” Cello Medley

This Stranger Things cello melody is in fact very beautiful indeed. Even when it goes into the main theme the melody is so calming that I have to admit that I had to pry my eyes open, not from boredom but because it relaxed me so much that I was starting to doze off. Good music can do this to a person just as surely as boredom can, but in a much more pleasant manner since it’s almost like drifting off to a lullaby. Something about the cello when it’s played right is just so inherently relaxing that it’s hard

Finn Wolfhard Is Well on His Way to Being a Horror Icon With His Next Role

Looks like Finn Wolfhard isn't tired of the horror genre just yet. On Thursday, Variety reported that Wolfhard has been cast in a new horror film called The Turning. The new project is actually an adaptation of the classic ghost story novella The Turn of the Screw, written by Henry James in 1898. The story follows a young woman who accepts a job as a nanny to two orphans in a seemingly haunted country mansion. I say "seemingly" because, well . . . just read the book and you'll know what I mean. Wolfhard has had quite the streak when it comes to the horror genre. After an early role in The CW's veteran series Supernatural, the young actor has since starred in Netflix's creepy and terrifying sci-fi series Stranger Things. This year, he also played loud-mouth Richie Tozierin Andy Muschietti's critically celebrated remake of Stephen King's It. Demogorgons, demonic clowns, ghosts . . . man,

Stranger Things Season 3 Is Coming, and We Have Plenty of Intel

By now, we've all made it through the second season of Stranger Things at least once, if not multiple times . . . right? After the insane new installment of the series, there's a lot to unpack. Luckily, we can already look forward to a third season that will hopefully give us an even deeper understanding of the crazy alternate universe that seems to haunt Hawkins, In. And hey, maybe we'll get some help processing Bob's death, the heartbreaking Chief Hopper detail, Dustin's rebuff at the Snow Ball, and all the other things that made us weep in season two. At this point, it's clear that the Duffer brothers, aka the show's creators, are in the very early stages of planning season three. Even so, there are a few things we know, a few things we can assume, and even a few things we can very lightly theorize about what's to come. Let's dive in.

Dark Review – Netflix Delivers Winner With German Time Travel Drama

Comparisons are tricky creatures, especially when you’re in an odd niche, but if a show hits that is moody, dark, and has a really bonkers, sci-fi story, it’s going to be compared to Stranger Things by just about everyone. Such is the case with Netflix‘ German series, Dark, and the problem is figuring out what, “Germany’s Stranger Things,” and similar, could possibly mean.

Does it involve tweens and monsters, or is it just hard to make out what’s going on without adjusting the brightness? Is it a small town/neighborhood thrown into utterly impossible events that may get everyone killed, or is it just something sci-fi with an ’80s theme?

Of course, the real trouble with such simplistic comparisons is that just because Dark “feels” a bit… Stranger Things-ey, it gets saddled with a lot of assumptions and expectations, few of which will pan out in this case.

Harbour (who plays police chief Jim Hopper in “Stranger Things”) took to Instagram on Monday after being nominated for a Globe for Best Supporting Actor to share how grateful he was for the nod. Keery was among the many who chimed in via the comments section. But his remark kinda stole Harbour’s thunder, as the actor (who plays hunk Steve in the Netflix series) made a vow that devastated fans.
