The actor who plays the beloved Sheriff in the Netflix science fiction series, revealed that before him the Duffer brothers had been considered a "great movie star" who is it?


With the presentation at the massive Netflix event, Tudum, it was proven (even more so) that the fourth season of Stranger Things is one of the titles most awaited by the platform's subscribers and fans. To keep waiting comes new information and it comes from the hand of David Harbor, who recently revealed that he was not the first choice to play Hawkins Sheriff Jim Hopper.


Since the series created by the Duffer brothers began, all their characters have had a great development, one of them is Hopper. The chief of police began attracting attention in the first season, for the second he climbed several steps by becoming the adoptive father of Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), and for the third he made everyone burst into tears by sacrificing himself in the secret laboratory the Russians they had at Hawkins. Thanks to the previews of the new season and comments from Harbor himself, it is known that Jim survived the explosion and is a prisoner in a Russian gulag.

    

In a recent interview given at New York Comic-Con, Harbor spoke about the long-awaited fourth season and revealed some interesting details about the hit Netflix series, such as that the first choice for the role of Jim Hopper was not him.

   

According to David, the creators of the series had offered the character to "a great movie star" and jokingly slipped the name of Ewan McGregor, the Star Wars star who will return to the franchise for the exclusive Obi- series. Wan Kenobi. In any case, the actor does not finish confirming who he refers to as that "great star".

   

"There was a person who was offered the role of Hopper before me who was apparently a huge movie star, and occasionally when I'm in a self-hate mood that I google, ScreenRant has all those articles that are like 'Ewan McGregor was out but I still don't know who the real celebrity is if anyone does let me know so I can thank them for stopping by, "says Harbor.

    

If there is something that gives cinema and series a plus, it is when you know who the first options were for an iconic role. Surely with the passing of the fourth season and the possible fifth and final season of the show, we will really know who was going to fill the position of Sheriff Hawkins, anyway, we thank him because we cannot imagine another star other than David for that role.
