In response, Stranger Things co-star Randy Havens wrote, “OMG Cary! Please be good. Send medical ideas on your way.”

According to TMZ, the actor was bitten by snakes near his Malibu home on Saturday (April 23) and airlifted to the hospital.

Elwes played for Mayor Larry Kline in the third season of Stranger Things. The fourth season will be released in two volumes: the first will arrive on May 27 and the second on July 1.

The actor was also Dr. Lawrence Gordon in the original Saw. Speaking to NME in 2019, he showed how a brief scene inspired him for the role.

“The two [James Wan y Leigh Whannell] they had a short fifteen minute scene in which Leigh played the role of Shawnee Smith caught in that inverted bear trap. Looking at that piece you could say that this would be very interesting and different from anything else. ”

“The script convinced me by itself, but that short film convinced me.”

Elwes will star in Mission: Impossible 7 opposite Tom Cruise, due for release July 14, 2023.
