#ShortFilmShoutout: Lucas Sinclair's 'Stranger Things' Backstory Gets Some Depth With This Short

This is installment #21 of Shadow And Act’s #ShortFilmShoutout series.

Writer and actor Tarik Davis is giving Stranger Things fans a fun 17 minutes with his fan film, Lucas Sinclair’s A.V. Interview: My Crazy Uncle Jack.

The film features Davis playing Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Erica’s (Priah Ferguson) uncle Jack Sinclair, who has been brought up on the series but never seen. Uncle Jack is shown sitting for one of Lucas’ films as an interview subject. During the film, Uncle Jack tells all kinds of stories about his past, but then the tables turn when he starts questioning Lucas about what’s going on with him and his friends in Hawkins.

The fan film has Stranger Things fans excited, with some even wanting him to join an upcoming season of the show.
