Australian Dacre Montgomery and Sadie Sink are set to join the season 2 cast of Netflix's hit period drama series Stranger Things.
The Perth-born actor will star in the role of Billy, Max’s hyper-confident, and edgy older step-brother. He steals girlfriends away from their boyfriends, is great at drinking games, and drives a black Camaro. But lurking under his apparent charisma, is a violent and unpredictable nature.
Sink has been cast in the role of Max, a tough and confident girl whose appearance, behavior and pursuits seem more typical of boys than of girls in this era. She has a complicated history and is generally suspicious of those around her.
Set in the 80s in Indiana, Stranger Things centers on the extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.
The nine-episode season will be available on Netflix in 2017.
Montgomery recently wrapped on Lionsgate's highly anticipated first installment of the Power Rangers franchise, where he plays their leader — 'The Red Power Ranger: Jason Lee Scott' — starring opposite Elizabeth Banks, Bryan Cranston and RJ Cyler.
Power Rangers will open in theaters March 2017.
