Stranger Things star David Harbour has wrapped filming on season three and to celebrate, he’s getting rid of the stache.
The actor, who plays Chief Jim Hopper, revealed the news in an Instagram post shared overnight. But, as directors and actors like to do these days, there’s a spoiler(s) without context in the picture and we’re all scratching our heads trying to figuring out what it means.
Pictured: a mystery.
Harbour’s intriguing caption reads: “Wrapped. Everyone say ‘goodbye moustache’. If you need any info on what’s good in Hawkins while I’m away, give Gary a call. He can’t keep his damn mouth shut.” Then, there’s that first hashtag: #spoilerswithoutcontext and the fifth – #fletch.
The cap does say Gary’s Plumbing & Heating / Warming Hawkins, In. Since 1972 on it so it’s definitely from the set.
As for #fletch, Harbour did say Stranger Things season three would be inspired by the 1985 film Fletch. In an interview with Variety, Harbour said: “‘Fletch’ is one movie we get to play around and have some fun with this season, which you wouldn’t expect from ‘Stranger Things’.”
Fletch is about an investigative reporter who goes undercover for a story. However, while in disguise, a businessman offers Fletch $50,000 to kill him. Curious, Fletch sets out to find out the story behind this man’s request.
What does this have to do with Stranger Things? Well, as Variety reported earlier this year, actor Jake Busey joined the cast of season three as Bruce. This character is described as “a journalist for The Hawkins Post, with questionable morals and a sick sense of humour.”
What has this got to do with Gary’s Plumbing & Heating and Harbour’s suss caption? I have no bloody idea.
In other news, Netflix uploaded a video to celebrate Stranger Things Day earlier this month to mark the day Will Byers went missing on November 6.
There’s still no official release date for Stranger Things 3 but we’ll keep ya updated.
