Want a Side of Po-Tay-Toes with Those Eggos? Sean Astin Joins Stranger Things Season Two!

The cast and crew of Stranger Things have come back together to start work on Season Two, and they’ve added three potentially awesome newcomers to the cast! First, Sean Astin will be the manager of the Hawkins RadioShack, because sometimes life is good. His character is named Bob Newby, and he’s a pal of Joyce and Hopper’s from high school. Next up, Aliens‘ Paul Reiser will be Dr. Owens, who’s sent in by the government to clean up the unfortunate mess made by the Demogorgon. Finally Linnea Berthelsen will be Roman, an emotionally damaged Danish girl who is somehow connected to the Hawkins’ lab.

This news has us even more excited for another season of the Netflix show than we were! Come on, Duffer Brothers, give us a scene of Sean Astin talking about Lord of the Rings with Mike, Lucas, Dustin, and Will. Or maybe assisting Eleven on a quest?
