We had a little fun fan-casting the “old Losers” and discussing personal fears Pennywise could use to scare the “sh-IT” out of them, and now it’s time for our third and final video with the adult cast of It Chapter Two. Whether it’s the Stephen King source material, the 1990 miniseries, or the two Andy Muschietti films, one of the strongest aspects of this story is the ensemble – a group of “losers” who get the strength to face bullies, prejudice, troubles at home and Pennywise by finding each other.
In It Chapter Two, Mike (Isaiah Mustafa) must hold the Losers Club to the promise they made 27 years ago; if Pennywise ever resurfaced in Derry, they’d all return home to defeat it once and for all. Trouble is, when you leave Derry, the memories you made there – good and bad – start to fade so it won’t be easy getting Bev (Jessica Chastain), Bill (James McAvoy), Ben (Jay Ryan), Eddie (James Ransone), Richie (Bill Hader) and Stan (Andy Bean) ready for the final showdown.
The Losers Club didn’t just win viewers over on screen when Muschietti’s first It film hit theaters in 2017; the young ensemble became a social media and industry sensation. Even though much of the adult cast already has resumes down to the floor, they still rock that same group charm and appeal so for this last video, we’re digging into that group dynamic a little with some cast superlatives. Who’s most likely to spill something on themselves at crafty? Who’d get lost in a funhouse? Who’s most likely to wake up in a sewer? Find out in the video interview at the top of this article!
Here’s the official synopsis for IT Chapter Two:
Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, “IT CHAPTER TWO” brings the characters—who’ve long since gone their separate ways—back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film. James McAvoy (“Split,” upcoming “Glass”) stars as Bill, Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain (“Zero Dark Thirty,” “Mama”) as Beverly, Bill Hader (HBO’s “Barry,” “The Skeleton Twins”) as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa (TV’s “Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments”) as Mike, Jay Ryan (TV’s “Mary Kills People”) as Ben, James Ransone (HBO’s “The Wire”) as Eddie, and Bill Skarsgård returning in the seminal role of Pennywise. Andy Bean (“Allegiant,” Starz’ “Power”) plays Stanley, and reprising their roles as the original members of the Losers Club are Jaeden Martell as Bill, Wyatt Oleff as Stanley, Sophia Lillis as Beverly, Finn Wolfhard as Richie, Jeremy Ray Taylor as Ben, Chosen Jacobs as Mike, and Jack Dylan Grazer as Eddie.
