Stranger Things adds Sean Astin to the cast!

Stranger Things has added Sean Astin to the cast, which may be the best thing that I will hear all day today.


Sean Astin in 1985 and now

In the wake of a disgusting political landscape here in America, we have a few things to take our mind off of the chaos, Stranger Things has definitely become on of those.

Well in an amazing turn of events, Goonies star Sean Astin has been added to the cast of the hit Netflix Original Series.

I personally think that the Lord of the Rings is the best story ever told, and I include the movies in that bundle. Sean Astin played an amazing Samwise, and I am sure that we will see that level of care in this character.

According to Variety, Astin plays Bob Newby, a kind-hearted former nerd who went to high school with Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) and Sheriff Hopper (David Harbour). Bob is now the manager of the Hawkins RadioShack.

The most important part of this, though, is how Sean Astin had a starring role in an 80’s hit film about a group of kids encountering an incredible adventure. Sound familiar?

Maybe I’m just grasping at straws here for things to look forward to, being that I’m surrounded by people screaming in my ear about why I need to vote for this person vs that person.

But I don’t think I am. I think this is a big deal.
