The cast of Stranger Things heads into summer while Swamp Thing goes back to its comic book roots. A familiar face from Star Trek is headed to Penny Dreadful’s City of Angels. Plus what’s to come on The 100, Aggretsuko, and more as you head to Spoiler Town.

Lair

Corey Johnson, Oded Fehr, and John Hannah—who, as Variety notes, all starred in 1999's The Mummy—have joined the cast of Lair, “a socially conscious horror movie about an LGBT family embroiled in one man’s attempt to prove the existence of the supernatural.”

According to the outlet, Johnson has been cast as Dr. Steven Caramore, an expert in the occult who professionally debunks the supernatural, while Fehr plays his latest charge, a man on trial for murder claiming he was possessed by a demon. Naturally, Hannah will play Fehr’s squirrelly, underhanded lawyer.
