TV Line reports Nashville star Will Chase has joined the cast of Stranger Things 2, the sequel season to Netflix’s smash hit series that took the world by storm last summer.
Chase has been revealed in a pivotal and recurring role as Neil Mayfield, the father of a family of recent transplants to Hawkins, Indiana from California. Neil is likely the father of Billy and Max played by Dacre Montgomery (Power Rangers) and broadway star Sadie Sink.
Max has been described as a tomboy who doesn’t travel anywhere without her skateboard and is positioned to be at the center of a love triangle between Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) while her stepbrother Billy is said to be a typical 80’s jock who steals girlfriends out from their boyfriends and drives a black Camaro while he isn’t busy playing drinking games. Underneath he is said to be violent and unpredictable and may possibly serve as a villain for the teenage characters.
The series has also added Sean Astin (The Goonies), Paul Reiser (Aliens), Brett Gelman (Jobs) and Danish actress Linnea Berthelsen into the mix for season two.
Stranger Things 2 stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, and Noah Schnapp.
The adventure continues in the fall of 1984 as the world is turning upside down. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Stranger Things as we learn it.
