It was only a question of one Metallica guitar solo in the Upside Down.

Joseph Quinn has met with the representatives from three major talent agencies in the United States –CAA, WME, and UTA, according to Deadline.

All three American agencies seek to sign the breakaway British actor after he stole everyone's hearts in 'Stranger Things ', having portrayed Eddie Munson, a Hawkins geek leading the local Dungeons & Dragons fan club titled 'The Hellfire Club'.

Despite Quinn being no stranger to the movie industry, he only received global recognition after 'Stranger Things' put him in the spotlight. Before taking the Netflix horror hit by storm, Quinn appeared in 'Dickensian' (2016), miniseries 'Howards End' (2017) and 'Catherine the Great' (2019).

Besides, he also had supporting roles in the BBC series 'Les Misérables' and 'Strike', as well as in the movies 'Overlord' (2018) and 'Make Up' (2019). Quinn also has some theatrical experience, being part of such plays as 'Deathwatch' (Print Room), 'Wish List' (Royal Court Theatre) and 'Mosquitoes' (Royal National Theatre).

After 'Stranger Things', Quinn is one of the most in-demand young UK talents. If he secures a deal with one of the three agencies, he might join the world's A-list actors in the list of their clients. For instance, UTA has Chris Pratt and Will Ferrell as key clients; CAA enjoys Margot Robbie, Jennifer Lawrence and Eddie Redmayne; while WME has Felicity Jones, Ben Affleck, Dwayne Johnson, Rachel McAdams, and Matthew McConaughey on their talent lists.
