Watch Dacre Montgomer's crazy audition for Billy in Stranger Things

  • Posted 6 months Ago

We've already seen mega cute footage of the kids from Stranger Things auditioning for their now-iconic roles and now, thanks to GQ, we have Dacre Montgomery's audition tape for the role of new character Billy Hargrove.

In the tape, which sees Dacre take on a number of different scenes, the actor goes full out, ending up topless and even sporting a G-string. "I just kind of wanted to make a bit of a splash with the Duffers, because I assumed they would be getting so many tapes," he said when speaking to GQ. "I had the audition details for about a day, and I did the whole thing in the first day because I was so overwhelmingly excited about it." He continues:

"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? 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."

Well, it certainly paid off because apparently the Duffer brothers called him back immediately the next morning, saying it caused a big stir when it was played during a big board meeting at Netflix. Check it out for yourself above.
