The horror movie that took the world by storm in 2017, IT, has started to really kick it into gear and seems to be finishing out its cast. IT: Chapter 2, has been one of the most talked about sequels since the original movies release in September. People have been trying to pick their list of actors for who they would want to portray the kids as adults in The Loser’s Club and it seems that it is really starting to take shape. Here is what we know so far.
James McAvoy as Bill Denbrough: While this has not been 100% confirmed, negotiations have been taking place and it seems highly likely that we will be seeing him playing Bill, the stuttering leader of The Loser’s Club.
Jessica Chastain as Beverly Marsh: A lot of fans early on stated that Jessica Chastain would be perfect for the role of Beverly, the fearless red headed female member of The Loser’s Club, and they may have gotten their wish. While again it is not 100% sure, Chastain herself has stated that she would love to take on the role of Beverly. I would chalk this one up as pretty much happening.
Bill Hader as Richie Tozier: Hader’s name was tossed around early on to play the role of the glasses wearing, foul mouthed child in The Loser’s Club. As with the two previous names he has not been confirmed but he has gone into negotiations for the part.
James Ransone as Eddie Kaspbrak: It was confirmed recently that Ransone will indeed be playing the role of Eddie, the hypochondriac and always fearful child in The Loser’s Club. James Ransone is known for his roles in Sinister and Sinister 2 as well as HBO’s The Wire.
Andy Bean as Stanley Uris: Quickly after Ransone confirmed that he was playing Eddie, Bean confirmed that he had been cast as the role of Stanley, the Jewish germaphobe who is apart of The Loser’s Club. Bean is known for his roles on HBO’s Here and Now and Power on STARZ.
Roles left to fill: New kid at school Ben Hanscom and African American homeschooled friend Mike Hanlon.
So what do you guys think? If the cast sticks this could be 5 of the 7 Loser’s of The Loser’s Club in IT: Chapter 2! Let us know in the comments.
