'Stranger Things' Bringing 'Goonies' and 'Aliens' Alums to Season 2

Stranger Things, the Netflix series that generates new content daily despite having premiered nearly four months ago, is still Stranger Things–ing. Today Entertainment Weekly reports that Season 2 has added three actors, two of whom cut their chops in the show's actual setting: the 1980s.

Paul Reiser will play Dr. Owens, "a high-ranking member within the Department of Energy on a 'clean-up' assignment, tasked with containing the events of last year." His '80s bona fides include Beverly Hills Cop and its sequel, Aliens and Diner (his feature debut). He currently stars on another streaming service's '80s-set show, Amazon's Red Oaks. He's a TV pro, having led the seven-season Mad About You with Helen Hunt in the '90s.
