Savage played the role of the anonymous “grandson” in the film, with actor Peter Falk telling him the story that becomes the film. During Sunday’s foundation, Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard read Savage’s lines. It sent social media users on a wild guessing game as to why Savage was not involved, sparking some speculation about his political leanings and others wondering if he had died.
