David Harbour on his costars: What adult male wants to hang out with 15 year-olds?


*SPOILERS for season three of Stranger Things*

David Harbour swung by Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday. David was there because he’s hosting SNL this weekend, which he said is a dream come true. I know a lot of folks have a thing for David’s Sheriff Hooper look. I don’t. But for reasons I cannot explain, this romantic poet thing he’s got going on in his Late Night appearance is kind of working for me.

And I want to get involved in conversations that they’re having about learning about themselves as 15-year-olds do.’ I have been in some conversations where, between them, where, in the middle of a conversation, I just have to get up and walk away. Because, ‘I’m qualified to speak about this, but I’m not going to tell you.’
