Your 80’s nostalgia cannot be quenched without the actor who haunted the dreams of everyone in that era! Yep, Freddy Kreuger himself, Robert Englund, is set to join season 4 of Netflix’s Stranger Things. Joining Englund as new cast additions are Jamie Campbell Bower (“Sweeney Todd”), Eduardo Franco (“Booksmart”) and Joseph Quinn (“Catherine the Great”)
Bower is joining as Peter Ballard, a caring man who works as an orderly at a psychiatric hospital. Tired of the brutality he witnesses day after day, will Peter finally take a stand?
Franco will play Argyle, Jonathan’s new best friend, a fun-loving stoner who proudly delivers delicious pizza pies for Surfer Boy Pizza.
Quinn joins as Eddie Munson, an audacious 80’s metalhead who runs The Hellfire Club, Hawkins High’s official D&D club. Hated by those who don’t understand him – and beloved by those who do – Eddie will find himself at the terrifying epicenter of this season’s mystery.
Englund will play Victor Creel, a disturbed and intimidating man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s.
Also joining the cast in recurring roles are the following:
“Game of Thrones” alum Tom Wlaschiha will play Dmitri, a Russian prison guard who befriends Hopper.
Sherman Augustus (“Into the Badlands”) as Lt. Colonel Sullivan, An intelligent, no-nonsense man who believes he knows how to stop the evil in Hawkins once and for all.
Mason Dye (“Bosch”) will play Jason Carver. Jason seemingly has it all – he’s handsome, he’s rich, he’s a sports star, and he’s dating the most popular girl in school. But as a new evil threatens Hawkins, Jason’s perfect world begins to unravel.
Nikola Djuricko (“Genius”) will play Yuri, a seedy and unpredictable Russian smuggler who loves bad jokes, cold hard cash, and crunchy style peanut butter.
Stranger Things has become one of Netflix’s biggest hits and as the series draws closer to a close (its expected to end with its fifth season) expect the series to delve further into the mysteries surrounding the Upside Down, the Demogorgons, and those other runaway enhanced humans like Eleven.
