Sean Astin’s Role in Stranger Things Grew

Audiences like cameos. Season 2 of Stranger Things delivered with Sean Astin. Best known for his leading roles in The Goonies (1985) and the Lord of the Ring trilogy, Astin stars as “Bob Newby,” Radio Shack manager and boyfriend to Winona Rider’s character “Joyce Byers.” Originally, Sean’s role was very, very small. However, according to the Duffer Brothers (creators of the hit series), it grew to last the entire season. “Superhero Bob” illustrates how no role is too small.

Season 2 of Stranger Things continues to stream on Netflix.
