Ben Schwartz and Joe Keery Shrug Off Steve and Jean-Ralphio Paternity Theories — in Exactly Identical Ways, Hm

Now, you can put your popcorn down, because this ain’t no episode of Maury, according to the duo at least. Nope, no paternity revelations here, as there is absolutely no relation between the character played by Keery and the character played by Schwartz, Keery and Schwartz said at the exact same time in the exact same way while wearing the exact same outfits. See, none at all. And so the case of the similarly arched eyebrows is closed.
