Stranger Things' Joe Keery & Parks & Rec's Ben Schwartz Performed a Father-Son Sketch! (Video)

Joe Keery, who plays Steve on Stranger Things, and Ben Schwartz, who plays Jean-Ralphio on Parks and Recreation, have created a hilarious sketch about the two of them being father and son.

The actors came up with the idea after many viewers jokingly said their characters might be related because of their striking resemblance (and gorgeous hair)!

When the duo met each other this week, they posted some photos in which they have fun taking on their father-son roles (Joe, 24, is the “father” and Ben, 35, is the “son,” since Stranger Things takes place in the ’80s).

Following the photos, Ben tweeted, “Full length video … coming soon. Questions will be answered. Theories will be tested. Two lives will forever be changed.”

Watch the sketch below!

Don Cheadle's 'House of Lies' Is Ending After Season Five

Don Cheadle‘s comedy series House of Lies has been canceled and it will end after the current fifth season.

The series finale will air on Sunday, June 12 and the episode was shot in Cuba. The show also starred Kristen Bell, Ben Schwartz, and Josh Lawson.

House of Lies is a comedy that has frequently been ahead of the curve,” Showtime president and CEO David Nevins said in a statement (via THR). “Over the course of its five seasons, it has tackled such hot-button topics as gender identity, wealth inequality, white privilege, police brutality, interracial relationships, and code-switching with honesty and a biting sense of humor. Matthew Carnahan and Don Cheadle have been dream partners and impeccable leaders. The core cast of Don, Kristen, Ben and Josh are one of the best comedy teams on television. They have brought the series to an incredibly satisfying conclusion with this historic final episode shot in Cuba.”

Kristen has already signed on to star in a new NBC comedy!
