The Nightmare on Elm Street legend Robert Englund will be making his way to Hawkins in the upcoming fourth season of Stranger Things! Englund will play Victor Creel, who, per the character description, is “a disturbed and intimidating man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s.”
Six other casting announcements have also been made which include Tom Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones) as Dmitri, a Russian prison guard that becomes friends with Hopper. Sherman Augustus (Into the Badlands) will play Lt. Colonel Sullivan — an intelligent, no-nonsense man who believes he knows how to finally stop the evil in Hawkins. Mason Dye (Bosch) has been cast as Jason Carver, a rich sports star who has it all made, that is until his world begins to unravel with the threat of another evil looming. Finally, Nikola Djuricko (Genius) will be entering as Yuri, a Russian smuggler who loves bad jokes, money, and crunchy peanut butter.
A number of season regulars have also been cast which include Jamie Campbell Bower (Harry Potter) as Peter Ballard who is an orderly at a psychiatric hospital, Eduardo Franco (Booksmart) as Argyle, a stoner who works at the local pizza shop, Surfer Boy Pizza, and Joseph Quinn (Catherine the Great) as Eddie Munson, a metalhead that runs the local Dungeons & Dragons club, The Hellfire Club.
Production picked back up last month after being halted due to Covid-19. We can’t wait for Stranger Things season 4!
