New Faces for Stranger Things Season 2
Missing the folks of Hawkins, Indiana? Well don’t despair, as season 2 is well underway with reports from EW that a few recognizable have joined the cast.
The Netflix original series, created by the Duffer Brothers ( Ross and Matt Duffer) has announced three new characters.
Danish actress Linnea Berthelsen has been cast as Roman. Per Netflix, she’s “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…”
Sean Astin (The Goonies, Lord of the Rings trilogy) 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.”
Paul Reiser (Aliens, Whiplash) has been cast as Dr. Owens, “a high-ranking member within the Department of Energy on a ‘clean-up’ assignment, tasked with containing the events of last year.”
With filming about to start, it wont be long before we head back to our favorite new town, and it sounds like it’s going to be epic! I could not be more happier with the new cast, and with a lot of returning faces (Come on Eleven…you’re not done yet!!) , searies 2 could well exceeded our expectations.
