Anyone who has seen the hit Netflix series Stranger Things will agree that the show has a very similar feel to it as the hit 80s movie The Goonies, so we were all delighted when it was announced that actor Sean Astin has been brought in to the join the cast of Stranger Things season 2. Sean has now been talking about working on the show, comparing it to The Goonies and admitting her is a big fan of the series.
Astin said, "I'd been hearing about this show for a couple of months and how much it was like The Goonies and how I had to see it and I would love it. As soon as they sent me an email saying that Stranger Things is having an audition and they'd like you to come in, I just thought, ‘Oh boy this might be fated’. I hadn't really watched the show but I binged it and fell in love with it."
As well as talking about how Stranger Things is like The Goonies and how it did not take him long to fall in love with the hit Netflix series, Sean Astin also went on to talk a little bit about what we can expect from his character in the second season of the show, although he does admit that he is not allowed to give too much away.
The actor added, "You'll appreciate that I have a brief that I have to stay within, but what I can say that is that Bob Newby, my character, works at RadioShack and he comes in as Winona's love interest."
Stranger Things season 2 will be available to watch on Netflix from Friday, October 27.
