No sooner had Brett Gelman announced he was leaving one job than he has another.

On Sunday, Gelman tweeted that he would no longer be working with Adult Swim over Executive Vice President and Creative Director Mike Lazzo’s comments about female creators and the alt-right leanings and fanbase of Adult Swim’s Million Dollar Extreme.


But Gelman won’t want for work, since The Hollywood Reporter broke the story that Gelman will join the cast of Stranger Things season two. Gelman will play a character named Murray Bauman, described as “a disgraced journalist-turned-conspiracy theorist who is investigating a cold case in Hawkins.”

He does have the conspiracy theorist beard locked down.
