Neon green and fanny packs apparently aren’t the only things making a comeback from the ’80s. Remember the 1988 movie Twins? In case you don’t (it was over 30 years ago, after all), here’s a refresher: Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito star as fraternal twins who were separated at birth. When Julius (Schwarzenegger) discovers he has a brother (DeVito) and mother, he sets off to find them, ending up in Los Angeles. What’s next is a hilarious tangle of confusion as each brother uses his particular skill set to find their mother and get out of various conflicts. Sound fun? Well, it looks like one famous actor is now looking to revisit the film.

Aquaman star Jason Momoa revealed his love for Twins at a panel discussion during Celebrity Fan Fest in San Antonio, Texas. According to ComicBook.com, a fan asked if he would do a Twins remake with his Game of Thrones co-star and friend Peter Dinklage. Momoa was thrilled with the idea, saying, "F**kin' tell me where to sign! Absolutely. That'd be amazing. I love that movie."

Momoa then agreed with the panel’s moderator that they should turn to Twitter to give the proposed plan some momentum.

While Khal Drogo and Tyrion Lannister did not share any scenes in Game of Thrones, perhaps a lighthearted remake could finally bring the two actors together on the big screen.

House Boasting a ‘Harry Potter Room’ Under the Stairs Hits the Market in San Diego

When Harry Potter fans dream of living like the boy wizard, they may picture Harry's cozy quarters in the Gryffindor dormitory at Hogwarts. One home owner in San Diego, California is trying to spin one of Harry's much less idyllic living situations as a magical feature. As The San Diego Union-Tribune reports, a listing of a three-bedroom house for sale in the city's Logan Heights neighborhood boasts a "Harry Potter room"—a.k.a storage room under the stairs.

In the Harry Potter books, the cupboard under the stairs of the Dursley residence served as Harry's bedroom before he enrolled in Hogwarts. Harry was eager to escape the cramped, dusty space, but thanks to the series' massive success, a similar feature in a real-world home may be a selling point for Harry Potter fans.

Kristin Rye, the seller of the San Diego house, told The Union-Tribune she would read Harry Potter books to her son, though she wouldn't describe herself as a super fan. As for why she characterized her closet as a “large ‘Harry Potter’ storage room underneath stairs" in her real estate listing, she said it was the most accurate description she could think of. “It’s just this closet under the stairs that goes back and is pretty much like a Harry Potter room. I don’t know how else to describe it," she told the newspaper.

Beyond the cupboard under the stairs, Rye's listing doesn't bear much resemblance to the cookie-cutter, suburban home of 4 Privet Drive. Nearly a century old, the San Diego house has the same cobwebs and a musty smells you might expect from the Hogwarts dungeons, the newspaper reports. But there are some perks, including a parking spot and backyard space for a garden or pull-up bar. The 1322-square-foot home is listed at $425,000—cheaper than the median price of $620,000 for a resale single-family home in the area.

If you want to live like a wizard, you don't necessarily need to start by moving under a staircase. In North Yorkshire, England, a cottage modeled after Hagrid's Hut is available to rent on a nightly basis.
