Justice for Barb at last! In the latest Netflix rom-com, Sierra Burgess Is a Loser, Shannon Purser (also known as the legendary Barb from Stranger Things) is finally getting the starring role she deserves.
If you haven't watched the trailer yet, Sierra Burgess Is a Loser is about an ambitious but unpopular high schooler who starts exchanging texts with a guy she finds herself falling for —— except that he thinks she is Veronica, the most popular girl in school.
A catfishing tale with good intentions, this movie is totally sweet, and the cast is absolutely stacked. Scroll through to check out who will be appearing in the film, which hit Netflix on Sept. 7.
Shannon Purser — the Stranger Things fan favorite Barb and Riverdale's Ethel Muggs — takes on the title role of Sierra Burgess, a smart and driven high schooler who forms a connection via text message with a popular athlete who thinks she's someone else.
Best known for his role of Jesus Adams Foster from The Fosters and for playing Peter in To All The Boys I've Loved Before, Noah Centineo appears as Jamey, Sierra's love interest who believes himself to be exchanging texts with popular cheerleader Veronica.
The model and Junior actress Kristine Froseth is sought-after cheerleader Veronica in the film, and she agrees to help Sierra catfish Jamey in exchange for help with her schoolwork.
Chrissy Metz takes a break from destroying us on a weekly basis in This Is Us to play Veronica's mother, Trish.
RJ Cyler from Me and Earl and The Dying Girl will play the role of Dan, Sierra's bandmate and best friend who finds his relationship with Sierra strained as she and Veronica grow increasingly closer.
Lea Thompson, who you'll definitely recognize from Back To The Future and, more recently, Switched At Birth, is taking on the role of Mrs. Burgess, Sierra's mom.
Playing opposite Lea Thompson as Mr. Burgess is veteran actor Alan Rick, who — if you don't recognize from NCIS or CSI — you might recognize as hopeless hypochondriac Cameron Frye from Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
