Apparently Joe Keery Trained For Weeks To Be A Swimmer On "Stranger Things," But It Was Cut

Does Fabergé Organics even work on wet hair?

Posted on

Last night, Joe Keery — who plays Mom of the Year Steve Harrington on Stranger Things — was a guest on Late Night With Seth Meyers.

During the interview, Joe revealed that everyone's new favorite character was originally supposed to be a swimmer!

A swimmer?? I have so many questions!

1. What would Steve look like with wet hair?

2. Would he still style it with Farrah Fawcett's Fabergé Organics?

3. Can Demogorgons swim??

I need to know!


But even though he said that swimming helped him become "the most in-shape [he'd] ever been," that whole plotline was cut from Mr. Harrington's character.


The moment between Steve and Nancy interrupted the basketball game he was playing with Billy. An earlier version of this post misstated the location. Yes, I did watch the show — probably faster than you, which is why I missed this. Sorry!
