Cary Elwes and Jake Busey have joined the cast of Stranger Things for the third season of Netflix's hit sci-fi horror series.

Beloved for his roles in the cult favorites The Princess Bride and Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Elwes will guest star as Hawkins, Indiana, Mayor Kline, described as the streaming service as "handsome, slick and sleazy." A classic 1980s politician, he's more worried about his own image than about the people of his town.

Busey, well remembered for his role in Starship Troopers, will appear in Season 3 as Bruce, a journalist for The Hawkins Post who has "questionable morals and a sick sense of humor."

Both roles appeared in character breakdowns that surfaced in late February.

The addition of Elwes and Busey follows the news last month that Maya Thurman-Hawke has been cast as "an alternative girl" who, bored with her job, seeks to add some excitement in her life. At the same time it was announced that Priah Ferguson, who plays Lucas Sinclair's scene-stealing sister Erica, will receive an expanded role in the upcoming season.

Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, David Harbour as Jim Hopper, Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler, Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson, Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas Sinclair, Natalia Dyer as Nancy Wheeler and Charlie Heaton as Jonathan Byers. The first two seasons are available now on Netflix.
