Cary Elwes, Jake Busey to star in 'Stranger Things' Season 3

Adjust Comment Print

Things will continue to be unusual in the town of Hawkins, Indiana as the cast for "Stranger Things" Season 3 grows even bigger.

The new character sounds like a villain in the making, one who is more focused on his own image than on doing any real work for the small town he oversees. There's now no word on when "Stranger Things" Season 3 will be available to stream. With names like Winona Ryder, Sean Astin, and Paul Reiser filling out the cast list, it's no secret that Stranger Things is meant to be a giant love story to the 80s.

Stranger Things 3 hasn't started shooting yet, so don't expect to see the next run of episodes sooner than 2019.

Ted Sarandos, Netflix's Chief Content Officer, announced some new cast members for the "Stranger Things" universe while at the See What's Next event in Rome.

Jake Busey will portray Bruce, a journalist for the The Hawkins Post with questionable morals and a sick sense of humor.

Cinephiles and casual movie fans will perhaps know Cary Elwes best from his beloved role as Wesley in The Princess Bride. His legacy also extends well into the '90s, with noteworthy roles in films varying from natural disaster thriller Twister to parody comedies Hot Shots! and Robin Hood: Men in Tights. Ace Levy from Starship Troopers. And this won't be the first time Jake Busey will be tapping into his father's legacy on screen - he'll be playing the son of his father's character in Shane Black's upcoming The Predator.

The introduction of Bruce and Mayor Kline seems to hint at how Stranger Things will continue expanding its world during Season 3.

Elwes will play Mayor Kline, described as "handsome, slick, and sleazy". As with all things related to Stranger Things, unfurling the mystery around both characters should be part of the fun while watching season 3.
