Cary Elwes, Jake Busey Join ‘Stranger Things’ Cast for Season 3

Actors Cary Elwes and Jake Busey will join the “Stranger Things” cast in the show’s third season, Netflix announced Wednesday.

Elwes, known for “The Princess Bride,” will play a character named Mayor Kline, while Busey, from “Starship Troopers,” will play Bruce.

Mayor Kline is being described by Netflix promotional materials as “handsome, slick, and sleazy.” “Your classic ’80s politician – more concerned with his own image than with the people of the small town he governs.” The Bruce character played by Busey is “a journalist for the The Hawkins Post, with questionable morals and a sick sense of humor.”

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos made the new casting announcement at Netflix’s See What’s Next event in Rome, where the streaming giant announced a slew of new productions from Europe and elsewhere around the world.

As previously announced, Maya Hawke will be one of the new leads in “Stranger Things,” while Priah Ferguson has been upped to a recurring role. The hit show also stars Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Winona Ryder and David Harbour.

The show is executive produced by the Duffer Brothers, Shawn Levy, Iain Paterson, and Dan Cohen of 21 Laps. The release date of “Stranger Things 3″ has not yet been announced.

I like how a classic 80s politician is exactly like a 10s politician.

More importantly did we get a Witcher cast yet?

Nice casting choices.

Hopefully this season turns out better than 2.

Season 2 wasn't bad...it just felt like more the same with a few new elements not quite working out (that Eleven centric episode did not work).

Hopefully it's better than season 2, season 2 felt like a rehash and introduced new characters that didn't add much.

The best part of season 2 was Steve and his character growth.

Nancy looked like a complete bitch and Johnathan was just there. They need to trim some of the character time and not go down story lines that add nothing.

Hopefully no more forced romance between characters with no chemistry as this show is awful about telegraphing these angles.

More Eleven, Billy, Dustin, Steve, Mike and Jim please!

Elwes does sleazy rather well, so that's a good choice.

Just no more of that “The Lost Sister” type of shizz and we'll be toasty.

Didn’t think season 1 was anything special. Whenever the story wasn’t focused on Eleven and the boys it was a chore to get through.

So amped. Just finished season 2 (one of the best seasons of tv I’ve ever seen) and now I’m dying for all info on season 3.

I kinda wish there are no monsters, no upside/down or supernatural entities for season 3. Just make it a straight coming of age/family drama....but of course I’ll settle for some stranger things.

I'm excited. :draper2

I'll admit Season 2 wasn't as good as Season 1. But S1 was literally phenomenal, I never expected it to top that. It's still one of the better shows on Netflix in my opinion. I really enjoy it.
