Stranger Things Season 4 Adds Robert Englund and Jamie Campbell Bower
It appears that fans will see a lot of new faces in the upcoming fourth season of Stranger Things. Deadline brings word that Robert Englund will portray Victor Creel, “a disturbed and intimidating man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s.” Englund is of course best known for playing serial killer Freddy Krueger in the Nightmare on Elm Street films.
Jamie Campbell Bower is joining the cast as new series regular. Bower — whom many fans will remember for playing the young Gellert Grindelwald in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald — will portray 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?”
Westworld‘s Sherman Augustus has also joined the cast as Lt. Colonel Sullivan, “an intelligent, no-nonsense man who believes he knows how to stop the evil in Hawkins once and for all.”
Additionally, Mason Dye (The Goldbergs) will play Jason Carver a “handsome” and “rich” sports star “who is dating the most popular girl in school. But as a new evil threatens Hawkins, Jason’s perfect world begins to unravel.”
Eduardo Franco (The Binge) is also joining the series as Argyle, the best friend of Charlie Heaton’s Jonathan. Argyle is also “a fun-loving stoner who proudly delivers delicious pizza pies for Surfer Boy Pizza.” Finally, Joseph Quinn (Catherine the Great) will play 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.”
Finally there are also a few characters whom Jim Hopper will meet in Russia. That includes Tom Wlaschiha’s Dmitri and Nikola Djuricko’s Yuri. The Game of Thrones veteran will play “a Russian prison guard who befriends Hopper. Dmitri is smart, cunning, and charming… but can he be trusted?” Meanwhile, Yuri is “a seedy and unpredictable Russian smuggler who loves bad jokes, cold hard cash, and crunchy style peanut butter.”
Netflix has yet to announce an official release date for Stranger Things Season 4.
