Our favorite Hawkins police chief and recent SAG Award nominee David Harbour dropped by the EW studios to share some of his thoughts on Stranger Things season 3 — and especially the people with whom he’s hoping to spend some quality screen time.

“I like that Joe Keery. That kid is hilarious and charming, and he’s a good actor,” Harbour says. “I would love to see some Hopper/Steve stuff, but I don’t know that that’s possible.”

Another actor he’d like to work with more? Winona Rider, whom he calls “amazing.” And he’s clearly a Joyce-Hopper shipper. “I think there’s a lot of rich material in why they work, or why they don’t work together,” he says. “So, yeah, I’d like to see them get together, and then see if they can stay together, or if they can’t stay together, if they tear each other apart.”

Harbour also discusses the kind of storytellers he likes to work with, and, of course, The Duffer Brothers clearly rank high in this category. As for whether or not the Duffers have told him anything about season 3, Harbour gasps, “I’m not telling you!”
