Australian actor Dacre Montgomery has joined the cast of ‘Stranger Things’ for its upcoming second season on Netflix.  The first season became the breakout hit of the summer instantly creating a huge fan following.

Montgomery made the announcement via Instagram:

Montgomery is a relative newcomer, but if you’ve been paying attention, he plays Jason the Red Ranger in the upcoming reboot of ‘Power Rangers’.

It is believed he will play Billy, a character previously described this way:
Billy is a super muscular, overconfident 17-year-old. He’s so captivating and edgy that there are rumors flying around that he killed someone at a past school he attended. Billy steals peoples’ girlfriends, is a drinking game pro and drives a black Camaro. But his violent and unpredictable nature shows itself to those closest to him, especially to ones who are younger than he is.
Billy is the older brother of a girl named Max who has been cast with Sadie Sink taking that role.  They will join Joe Keery, who played Nancy’s douchey boyfriend Steve and Noah Shnapp who played Will Byers, who was missing for most of Season One who are being bumped to series regulars.
