The It Actors Were Finally All Together and It Is Fun!


Bill Hader and Finn Wolfhard

In the world of perfect casting choices, the kid and adult actors bringing Stephen King’s It to life took to the stage at Cinema Con and the internet collectively screamed. A good scream though, not a Pennywise the Dancing Clown scream. For many like myself, the movie adaptation of It changed the way we viewed one of King’s most famed works.

The TV movie starring Tim Curry had haunted our dreams for years, but the recent terrifying remake brought many of us to the cinema, watching as Bill, Richie, Eddie, Stanley, Beverly, Mike, and Ben tried to kill the murderous demon clown that was haunting Derry, Maine.

The 2017 remake of It gave us a new Losers’ Club to love, watching as these kids bonded together to avenge Georgie’s death. So when it became clear that It Chapter 2 was going to need to cast the adult versions of these characters, I figured we’d never get to see them together. Thankfully, Cinema Con has our best interests at heart.

Sorry but I just want to talk about how perfect the casting of Finn Wolfhard turning into Bill Hader is.

It Chapter 2 promises to re-terrify us all.

It Chapter 2 is probably going to make us all hate clowns even more than we already do but whatever, once you’re part of the Losers’ Club, you’re always part of it.
