A Young Jim Hopper is Expertly Cast in ‘Stranger things.’
Stranger Things may be inching towards its endgame, with the fifth season and final season on its horizon, but that doesn’t mean Netflix has stopped milking its prized cash cow.
One unannounced Stranger Things sequel is in development. Series creators Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer tease that there are many more stories in the show’s universe, even if they don’t revolve around Eleven or the gang.
The Duffers have not yet confirmed the details of their Stranger Things series, but many fans would love to see a series about a young Jim Hopper. David Harbour, the grumpy chief of police on Stranger Things, has also thought about it.
Harbour spoke to Q and said that he believes his beloved character can exist “ndependently” on him and that he would love to see another person take the role.
He explained that Hopper was a character that could exist without me at this point. “f they want to go back in history, forward in history… II’dlove for another actor to play Hopper and show me what they can do.”HHarbour’schoice of young Hopper actor? Euphoriastar Jacob Elordi, who Harbour believes “ould pull it off being as handsome and as beautiful as I was at twenty”, is another actor. To be fair, IIT is not a terrible choice.
It is worth noting that Joe Keery (who plays Steve Harrington in Stranger Things) would love to portray a younger Hopper. This is due to HHarbour’samazing hairstyle when he was younger. IIt’snot clear how this would work, as Keery is already a familiar face for Stranger Things fans. But anything can happen in Hawkins.
