Is there a way for Thread 2 to call a method that will go on Thread 1's stack and interrupt whatever Thread 1 is currently doing?
Thread 1: Running happily along
Thread 2: Comes along and calls a method that will go on Thread 1's stack, NOT Thread 2's stack; method runs to completion; Thread 1 resumes what it was doing

I don't believe there is any notion of threads sharing stacks in Java.

Nope. Was that idea supposed to be a solution to some problem, or was it just a question out of general interest? If there was an actual problem involved, it would be better to just ask about that problem.

And welcome to the Ranch
It is of course possible for methods running in two threads to call methods on a particular object simultaneously and interfere with each other. Which is why you need synchronisation or similar.
