Stranger Things 3 is developing a cast which now consists of The Princess Bride star Cary Elwes. Elwes and Jake Busey will sign up with the team in Hawkins for Season 3 of the hit Netflix program.
According to a Netflix news release, Elwes will play the “good-looking, slick, and sleazy” Mayor Kline; a “ traditional ’ 80s political leader– more worried with his own image than with individuals of the town he governs.”
Intriguing, and definitely a description fitting of the Season’s de facto bad guy — apart from the looming Shadow Monster, obviously.
Elwes, like Sean Astin and Paul Reiser in Season 2, signs up with the program as a well-known alum of a popular ’80s movie. Busey will play a regional reporter with “doubtful morals and an ill funny bone.”
Something informs us that may not play well with Mayor Kline — at the same time, the 2 might sign up with forces to challenge Will Byers and his buddies while they aim to conserve their town from the Upside Down.
Stranger Things 3 is presently shooting.
