Aaron Paul Is So Obsessed with 'Stranger Things,' He Wants to Adopt Eleven

We're not the only ones obsessed with Stranger Things -- even TV royalty can't get enough of Netflix's smash hit series.

On The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Wednesday, Aaron Paul used just that word -- "obsessed" -- about a half dozen times when referring to his commitment to the show, totally derailing a talk-show appearance likely intended to promote The Path and BoJack Horseman, Paul's own streaming series. 

And Paul's not exaggerating his adoration: in the clip above, the actor tells Fallon that he and his wife want to adopt Millie Bobby Brown, the breakout young actress who plays Eleven (but is actually 12 years old... so close). Unlike Eleven, Brown does have her own parents to live with, though, so Paul had to settle for interviewing her for the character's nicknamesake magazine, ElleChin up, Aaron Paul: maybe the Duffer Brothers will cast you as her father figure in Season 2.
