Season 2 of "Stranger Things" gifted us with a beautiful new villain that we all love to hate - Billy Hargrove. He is portrayed by your new celeb crush *wink wink* Dacre Montgomery. His audition tape was just released and it is incredible.
How did Dacre snag the role?
“I got up, kinda went crazy, shaved all my hair off around my face except for my mustache, and then rang two friends who are still studying at the acting university that I went to here in Perth. I was like, ‘Can you help read for me behind the camera tonight?'” explained the actor. “Then, during the day, I made everything else happen — the dancing and the rest, going out in the G-string and just playing around with it, and putting it together on iMovie and doing all that sort of stuff.”
Oh, and dancing shirtless to Dexys Midnight Runners, obviously. Expect to see Dacre everywhere after his amazing performance as Billy. Check out the audition tape!
"Stranger Things 2" is now streaming on Netflix.
