It’s time to announce the first special guest for this May’s MCM London Comic Con – none other than Stranger Things star David Harbour! Harbour appears as fan favourite Sheriff Jim Hopper in Netflix’s acclaimed ‘80s-set sci-fi horror series, whose third season premieres in July. The New York-born actor is also set to play the title character in the upcoming Hellboy reboot.
“Mornings are for coffee and contemplation”
Emmy-winning Netflix Original show Stranger Things is set in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, where the sudden disappearance of a young boy named Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) unearths Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) – a girl with otherworldly powers. Together with Will’s mother Joyce (Winona Ryder), Harbour’s small town sheriff Jim Hopper sets out to find the missing boy, who has actually been taken to an alternate dimension called the Upside Down.
David Harbour will also be returning to the big screen this year, starring as the iconic demonic hero of superhero reboot Hellboy, which is slated to open in theatres in April. Harbour’s other movie credits include Suicide Squad, Quantum of Solace, State of Play, The Green Hornet, Revolutionary Road and Brokeback Mountain.
