Lately, the only Goonie making headlines has been Corey Feldman, but with the latest Stranger Things cast announcement, everybody’s talking about their favourite treasure hunting, friendly hobbit Sean Astin – and for a good reason!
That’s right! Mikey Walsh AKA Astin will play Bob Newby, a “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 (totally 80s).
Season 2 of the Netflix sci-fi thriller will also include Paul Reiser and Linnea Berthelsen. The Sophomore season is currently in production and aiming for a 2017 release, though no dates have been announced.
