After having his Stranger Things character immortalized in corn last month, Joseph Quinn (who plays metalhead Eddie Munson) is venturing to a part of our country where that could hypothetically happen again — though it's more likely to be a raccoon-orchestrated homage crafted in garbage.

Yes, that's right; Quinn is headed to Toronto.

The actor will appear at FAN EXPO Canada, taking place at the Toronto Metro Convention Centre from August 25 to 28. It will mark Quinn's first North American convention appearance, and he'll attend a Q&A panel during his two days (August 27 and 28) at the con, so you can ask about the acting challenge of his life: pretending to shred Metallica's "Master of Puppets" in the Season 4 finale. (Apologies if you still think this widely known information is a spoiler.)

Fans can get an autograph from the man behind the Munson for $100 CAD or have a photo op with the actor for $130. Quantities are limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Previously announced celebrity guests appearing at this year's Toronto iteration of the event include iconic Canadian comedy troupe the Kids in the Hall (Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson), Kevin Smith, William Shatner, and a reunion of the four Hobbits from the Lord of the Rings trilogy — Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan.

FAN EXPO tickets are on sale here if you're looking to get recruited for the Hellfire Club by its most infamous member. In the meantime, you can learn more about Quinn's co-star in the Duffer Brothers' hit Netflix series by reading Exclaim!'s latest cover story on Maya Hawke.
