Actors Jake Busey and Cary Elwes will be joining the cast of Stranger Things season three, Netflix has announced.

Cary will play the role of Mayor Kline, described as "handsome, slick, and sleazy...[a] classic 80s politician", THR reports.

The plot for season 3 of Stranger Things remains under wraps, though Netflix has released a few key details.

Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of Stranger Things as we learn it.

So maybe Season 3 is going to be a romance like The Princess Bride? Busey has enough range as an actor to pull off "outwardly sexist" if necessary, though you're not likely to get "overweight" from Jake.

Elwes and Busey are set to play characters named Mayor Kline and Bruce, respectively.

Both will join recurring actors Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Winona Ryder and David Harbour.

The news came via Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos, who made the announcement while discussing the streaming service's planned worldwide productions during the See What's Next even in Rome, Italy on Wednesday afternoon.

Elwes is perhaps best known for his roles in Academy Award winning films GLORY, DAYS OF THUNDER and BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA, box-office hits HOT SHOTS!, TWISTER, LIAR LIAR and SAW, and the cult classics ROBIN HOOD: MEN IN TIGHTS and THE PRINCESS BRIDE.

"Our next Stranger Things could just as likely come from anywhere in the world". Sarandos didn't expand upon their roles beyond that, though it stands to reason that Kline will be the current mayor of Hawkins when season 3 picks up. His credits include Contact, Enemy of the State, The Frighteners, and Starship Trooper.

Most recently, Jake Busey starred in the Shane Black / Fox feature The Predator, which is coming out in September.
