Stranger Things: The Princess Bride's Cary Elwes Joins Season 3 Cast


Stranger Things meets Princess Bride? As you wish.

Cary Elwes is set to guest-star as Mayor Kline in Season 3 of the Netflix phenomenon, according to our sister site Deadline. The character is described 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.”

In addition, recent Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. guest star Jake “son of Gary” Busey has been tapped to play Bruce, a journalist for the The Hawkins Post with questionable morals and a sick sense of humor.

Elwes is of course best known for his role as Westley in the aforementioned Princess Bride. His TV credits include recurring roles on The X-Files and Psych, as well as a series regular stint on Crackle’s The Art of More. Busey, meanwhile, has been seen in Ray Donovan and From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series.

Production on Stranger Things‘ eight-episode Season 3 is set to commence next month.
