Stranger Things S04: Casting Call – Several Actors Cast For Upcoming Season
The upcoming and next season of Stranger Things is underway.
The shooting of the series shut down in Hollywood, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It had shot and released a teaser earlier this year but had to close production due to the virus and the plans to continue has now happened. And that means the casting calls in on-going. Mostly, of these new members of the cast plays Russia criminals or are linked in some way to the Russian prison where we last met Jim Hopper. Robert Englund, Sherman Augustus, Mason Dye, Jamie Campbell Bower, Eduardo Franco, Joseph Quinn, Nikola Djuricko and Tom Wlaschiha have all been confirmed to join the new season.
Stranger Things official account has also provided a role description for the new characters:
“Englund is Victor Creel, a disturbed and intimidating man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s.
Bower is 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?
Franco is Argyle, Jonathan’s new best friend, a fun-loving stoner who proudly delivers delicious pizza pies for Surfer Boy Pizza.
Quinn is 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 epicentre of this season’s mystery.
Augustus is Lt. Colonel Sullivan, an intelligent, no-nonsense man who believes he knows how to stop the evil in Hawkins once and for all.
Dye is 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.
Djuricko is Yuri, a seedy and unpredictable Russian smuggler who loves bad jokes, cold hard cash, and crunchy style peanut butter.
Wlaschiha is Dmitri, a Russian prison guard who befriends Hopper. Dmitri is smart, cunning, and charming… but can he be trusted?”
More news of this is expected to come, most likely when production has been ongoing for a while… Netflix has not revealed the release date as it was pushed back.
