ONE OF THE many beloved characters on Stranger Things is the heroic Chief Jim Hopper, played by David Harbour.

Happily, Harbour is a bit of a legend in real life too, and an absolute gem on social media.

1. When he gladly acknowledged his ‘dadbod’ status

This tweet is like poetry. “Jiggling and flapping with all my excess midsection into the limelight.” Does this man have a book deal yet?

2. And how different he looks without a beard

It seems that his life’s purpose aligns with ours.

3. When he realised that basically all of his co-stars are stealing his look

It started with Joe Keery (Steve) and his magnificent mop of hair, but then he saw himself in Dustin, Will,

4. Even Nancy

Oh my god.

5. When he inadvertently agreed to pose for a fan’s school photo

He didn’t seem to expect it to blow right past 25,000 retweets (his co-stars helped it along), but to his credit, it looks like he’s going ahead with it.

6. When he gave a shout out to the Hopper Dancing meme

7. When he dished about his epic love affair with a Stranger Things makeup artist’s dog

Bittersweet season 2 spoiler. Joyce has been recast for season2. 😏😜

A post shared by David Harbour (@dkharbour) on

He’s in a battle for her affections with Joe Keery, who has also been photographed with the dog. He told Mashable:

I fell madly in love with this dog and put a picture on Instagram, and then Joe would text me pictures of him and the dog in the makeup trailer, and I would get so jealous and mad and rageful.

8. When he posted a touching behind the scenes photo

“Sometimes I look at pictures of myself like this and can’t believe how UNBELIEVABLY photogenic I am.”

9. And every time he’s fanboyed over Winona Ryder

10. Really. He loves Winona

Like, how could you not? He truly is one of us.
