We reported earlier that Stranger Things Season 2 has started filming with the return of one of our favourite characters of the year (here) ad now we have news of some great additions to what was essentially the greatest 80s throwback of, well, ever…
Yes, the show created by Ross and Matt Duffer, has cast three intriguing actors.
First up, Danish actress Linnea Berthelsen will play Roman, “an emotionally damaged, magnetic young woman who suffered a great loss as a child. Although she does not live in Hawkins, she is mysteriously connected to the supernatural events at the lab…” Hmmmmm… sounds to us like there could be an regional Eleven out there in Hawkins.
Next up, Goonies and Lord of the Rings star Sean Astin will play Bob Newby, “a kindhearted former nerd who went to high school with Joyce (Winona Ryder) and Hopper (David Harbour) and now manages the local Hawkins RadioShack.”
And finally Aliens and My Two Dads star Paul Reiser is Dr Owens, “a high-ranking member within the Department of Energy on a ‘clean-up’ assignment, tasked with containing the events of last year.”
Could Reiser be in to pick up where Matthew Modine’s Dr Brenner left off?
However they tie in, we can’t wait to get the bus back to Hawkins in 2017…
