‘It: Chapter Two’s’ Adult Casting is Done & Totally Perfect

Warner Bros./ 20th Century Fox

When It hit theaters last September it broke all sorts of records at the box office including the biggest opening weekend for a horror movie. If that wasn’t good enough news, Warner Bros. quickly announced that there would be sequel taking place 27 years later with The Loser’s Club all grown up and once again having to face the terrifying Pennywise (played once again by Bill Skarsgård). The film is slated to begin filming this summer with a release date of September 2019.

Well, casting for It: Chapter 2 is finally complete and the adult cast is straight fire and we are totally obsessed! Not only have they managed to score some pretty big Hollywood names, but they also look the part when compared to their younger characters. Don’t believe us? Take a look below and see for yourselves!

Beverly Marsh

Warner Bros./20th Century Fox

Kid: Sophia Lillis
Adult: Jessica Chastain

Once It: Chapter Two was announced, Jessica Chastain was everyone’s dream casting for Beverly and fans got their wish as she was the first adult casting to be confirmed! Chastain most recently appeared in Molly’s Game and will soon be starring in X-Men: The Dark Phoenix. 

Bill Denbrough

Warner Bros./ 20th Century Fox

Kid: Jaeden Lieberher
Adult: James McAvoy

McAvoy was another name thrown around in early discussions and we think that he is perfect for the role of adult Bill. McAvoy can also be seen alongside Chastain in the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix as well as his Split sequel, Glass.

Richie Tozier

Warner Bros./ John P. Johnson,HBO

Kid: Finn Wolfhard
Adult: Bill Hader

Bill Hader being cast as an older version of Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard is the epitome of perfect casting. You can currently catch Hader as a hit-man trying to be a serious actor on HBO’s Barry.

Stanley Uris

Warner Bros./Starz

Kid: Wyatt Oleff 
Adult: Andy Bean

The adult version of Stanley Uris will be played by Andy Bean who certainly looks the part of an older Wyatt Oleff. His most notable role as of late was playing Greg in Power on Starz and he recently appeared in seven episodes of Here and Now. 

Eddie Kaspbrak

Warner Bros./Blumhouse

Kid: Jack Dylan Grazer
Adult: James Ransone

James Ransone doesn’t have a ton of popular credits to his name but has appeared in both Sinister and Sinister 2. He also had a recurring role on HBO’s Mosaic and will soon be appearing in a new series called The First about the first manned mission to Mars.

Ben Hanscom

Warner Bros./The CW

Kid: Jeremy Ray Taylor
Adult: Jay Ryan

Jay Ryan may have starred in 176 episodes of Australia’s Neighbours, but he’s had quite a successful run on American television as well. He starred on The CW’s Beauty and The Beast as well as Top of the Lake alongside Elisabeth Moss and most recently he appeared in Lifetime’s Mary Kills People. 

Mike Hanlon 

Warner Bros./ Freeform-John Medland

Kid: Chosen Jacobs
Adult: Isaiah Mustafa

Yes, Mustafa is definitely most recognizable as the Old Spice Guy, but he’s been playing  Luke Garroway on Freeform’s Shadowhunters for three years.

So, what do you think? They did an amazing job, right? We were already excited about It: Chapter Two, but now we are even more stoked and wish that September 6, 2019 wasn’t so far away!
