It was a dark and stormy day in New York City, the perfect day for brightly costumed superheroes to come out in droves and crowd the New York streets and subways. But there’s one superhero that stands apart from the rest. He’s a guy simply named Guy, and he’s not actually the hero of the story. An NPC (non-playable character) in a video game, Guy is a simple-minded bank teller played by Ryan Reynolds and the unwitting protagonist of the upcoming Shawn Levy-directed action-comedy Free Guy.
At 2019’s New York Comic-Con, the 20th Century Fox panel rolled out the red carpet for Reynolds and Levy, as well as the all-star cast that includes Taika Waititi, Jodie Comer (Killing Eve), Joe Keery (Stranger Things), Lil Rel Howery (Get Out), and Utkarsh Ambudkar (Pitch Perfect). Here’s everything that /Film learned at the Free Guy New York Comic-Con 2019 panel.

Most commercials are awful. That’s just the reality of the advertising world. But every now and then, a solid commercial comes along that almost makes you forget that a company is trying to sell you something. Such is the case with a new Domino’s commercial that takes more than a cue from the John Hughes classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
Stranger Things supporting actor Joe Keery (aka the son of Parks and Recreation star Ben Schwartz) stars in the commercial that puts him in the shoes of a cool Ferris Bueller type teen who is trying to make it home before his Domino’s pizza arrives. It’s quite the loyal, albeit abridged recreation of Ferris Bueller’s race against the clock to get home before his parents get back from work.

Today, that means adding a couple new cast members to their already fantastic lineup. Dacre Montgomery and Sadie Sink have just been cast in Stranger Things season 2 as “Billy” and “Max,” respectively.

Stranger Things has given way to a great many conspiracy theories, but perhaps none more convincing than “Steve is really the father of Jean-Ralphio from Parks & Recreation.” The evidence is incontrovertible: the two guys kind of look alike, and both characters hail from Indiana, and… actually, that’s about it. Okay, so maybe it’s not all that airtight after all. But Ben Schwartz (a.k.a. Jean-Ralphio) and Joe Keery (a.k.a. Steve) are more than happy to run with it, and that’s what matters.
Earlier this week we oohed and ahhed over a bunch of snapshots of father and son being reunited thanks to The Late Late Show With James Corden, and now there’s video footage of their special encounter — including the moment they realized that, yes, they are related after all. Read More »
Fans of Stranger Things who also happen to be fans of the comedy series Parks and Recreation have noticed that Joe Keery (who plays Steve on Netflix’s sci-fi show) looks an awful lot like Ben Schwartz, who played Jean-Ralphio Saperstein on the NBC comedy series. Fans hypothesized that since Stranger Things is set in the fictional Indiana town of Hawkins in the 1980s, it only made sense that he would turn out to be the father of Jean-Ralphio in Parks and Recreation‘s fictional Indiana town of Pawnee.
Thankfully, Ben Schwartz took the time to confirm this theory on The Late Late Show with James Corden back in August, and now we get to see father and son reunited in a series of photos posted to social media by the two actors.
