Hawkins just added the most famous Elm Street resident. The always-great Robert Englund is joining the cast of the fourth season of Stranger Things. But he’s not alone as seven other new cast members have been added to the upcoming season, currently in production.
Netflix show has cast Jamie Campbell Bower, Eduardo Franco, and Joseph Quinn as series regulars. Robert Englund, best known for the iconic slasher Freddy Krueger, joins Game of Thrones alum Tom Wlaschiha, Sherman Augustus, Mason Dye, and Nikola Djuricko has recurring actors.
Bower will play Peter Ballard, a caring man who works as an orderly at a psychiatric hospital; Franco will play Jonathan’s new best friend Argyle, a fun-loving stoner pizza delivery boy for Surfer Boy Pizza; Quinn takes on the role of Eddie Munson, a metalhead who runs Hawkins High’s official D&D club; Augustus plays as Lt. Colonel Sullivan; and Mason Dye will play Jason Carver. On the Russian side of things, Wlaschiha will play Dmitri, a Russian prison guard who befriends Hopper; and Djuricko will play Yuri, a seedy and unpredictable Russian smuggler who loves bad jokes, cold hard cash, and crunchy style peanut butter.
Most interestingly, Englund will play Victor Creel. Creel is described as a disturbed and intimidating man imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s. Could we see him tackle a role as memorable as his late disturbed man known for some fairly gory murders? Only time will tell…
