That's right, geeks, I'm talking about none other than actor, producer, and director Sean Astin!
Astin will be playing Bob Newby, a nerdy guy who went to school with Joyce and Hopper. The character works at the community RadioShack. Who remembers RadioShack in the 80s? There was no better place to get...well...anything a nerd could want, from radio components to robot parts.
This is a fantastic nod to the 80s nerdy nostalgia that we all love Stranger Things for, and will only make the wait for season 2 harder!
What do you guys think about this latest addition?
