Joe Keery had a major part of his Stranger Things role cut from the series!
The 25-year-old actor says that his character Steve was originally going to be a competitive swimmer during the first season â€“ and he prepped for six weeks!
â€œThey were saying, â€˜Heâ€™s going to be kinda like this jock character, and heâ€™s like a swimmer,â€™â€ Joe said on Late Night With Seth Meyers.
He added, â€œSo, for the first, I donâ€™t know, six weeks prior to shooting, I was training, doing all this swimming prep. I thought I was going to be in, like, a Speedoâ€¦And on the first day I showed up and they were like â€˜Oh, no, we cut that!â€™â€
