The University of South Florida’s student lecture series just got a whole lot stranger.
Stranger Things star David Harbour, who plays Hawkins, Ind., police chief Jim Hopper, will deliver a free lecture at USF on Nov. 20. He’s a last-minute fill-in for Emmy-winning Orange Is the New Black actor Laverne Cox, who, it was announced Tuesday, had to back out due to filming conflicts.
Harbour is no slouch as a replacement, though. The Hellboy star was one of the breakout celebrities from Stranger Things, with his Season 3 “Fat Rambo” look becoming a hot 2019 Halloween costume. He even hosted Saturday Night Live this fall.
Harbour also is an outspoken advocate for several causes on and off social media, particularly for removing any sort of stigma related to mental illness.
Like all USF lectures, Harbour’s appearance is free and open to the public, although space is usually limited and students, faculty and staff are given priority. He’ll speak at 8 p.m. at the Marshall Student Center Oval Theater. Click here for details.
