'Stranger Things' Season 3 Casts 2 New Characters, Including 'Sleazy' Mayor
"Stranger Things." Welcome aboard!
"Stranger Things" Season 3 is gearing up for production, and Netflix just announced two new roles for the season:
Cary Elwes, forever Westley of "The Princess Bride," will play Mayor Kline. "Handsome, slick, and sleazy, Mayor Kline is your classic 80s politician -- more concerned with his own image than with the people of the small town he governs."
Jake Busey ("Starship Troopers," son of Gary Busey) will play Bruce, "a journalist for the The Hawkins Post with questionable morals and a sick sense of humor."
Seriously, though. With monsters on the loose, and people like this running the town, why does anyone stay in Hawkins?
These two new roles follow the announcement that Maya Thurman-Hawke will play new character Robin, "an alternative girl who is equal parts sharp and playful. Bored with her mundane day job, she just wants a little excitement in her life... and gets more than she bargained for when she uncovers a dark secret in Hawkins."
A couple of months ago there were rumors via ThatHashtagShow.com that three recurring roles were being cast: "Mayor Larry Kline, a self-interested and slimy politician; Bruce, a misogynistic news reporter lacking integrity; and Patricia Brown, an elderly woman in the neighborhood who is kind to the kids."
So that report was apparently correct, and now we just need to hear who'll be playing the kind elderly woman.
"Stranger Things 3" doesn't have a release date yet, but it's expected in 2019.
