Freddy Krueger, Game of Thrones and Twilight Stars Join Stranger Things Season 4

Does Hawkins have an Elm St.?

The cast of “Stranger Things” just got even stranger.

On Friday, Netflix confirmed eight new additions to the show’s cast for Season 4 — including “Nightmare on Elm Street” star Robert Englund, “Twilight” alum Jamie Campbell Bower and Tom Wlaschiha from “Game of Thrones.”

While Englund won’t be playing Freddy Krueger in the ’80s-set series, his character still sounds pretty damn sinister. The actor will appear as Victor Creel, a disturbed and intimidating man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s.

Bower will play Peter Ballard, “a caring man who works as an orderly at a psychiatric hospital.” Netflix adds, “Tired of the brutality he witnesses day after day, will Peter finally take a stand?”

Wlaschiha, who played the shapeshifting Jaqen H’ghar on “GoT,” will pop up as one of the Russian prison guards assigned to Hopper. He’s described as “smart, cunning and charming,” but can he be trusted?
