The Casting For “It Chapter Two” Is Really Impressive — Here’s What The Kids And Adults Look Like Side-By-Side

If there were a Best Casting category at the Oscars, It Chapter Two would win.

Warning: Mild spoilers ahead, so if you want to know absolutely NOTHING, bookmark this for later!

1. Beverly Marsh — played by Sophia Lillis and Jessica Chastain:

Warner Bros.

Fun fact: Lillis said she "always wanted" Jessica Chastain to play her since day one of shooting It (Chapter One).

2. Bill Denbrough — played by Jaeden Lieberher and James McAvoy:

Warner Bros.

Fun fact: Lieberher said he was flattered that they cast McAvoy as "old" Bill because "he's a very handsome dude."

3. Richie Tozier — played by Finn Wolfhard and Bill Hader:

Warner Bros.

Fun fact: Bill Hader joked that Finn Wolfhard is like Joffrey from Game of Thrones because he was "powerful" enough to help Hader get cast as older Richie.

4. Eddie Kaspbrak — played by Jack Dylan Grazer and James Ransone:

Warner Bros.

Fun fact: Grazer and Ransone's first meeting was kind of awkward, and they just talked about music.

5. Ben Hanscom — played by Jeremy Ray Taylor and Jay Ryan:

Warner Bros.

Fun fact: Taylor joked that he would "not mind looking like Jay Ryan" when he's 40, but he did say it was surreal meeting him.

6. Mike Hanlon — played by Chosen Jacobs and Isaiah Mustafa:

Warner Bros.

Fun fact: Mustafa tried to hold his arm the way Jacobs did in the first movie to channel Mike more, but Muschietti told him not to, LOL.

7. Stanley Uris — played by Wyatt Oleff and Andy Bean:

Warner Bros.

Fun fact: Oleff gave advice to Bean sometimes and was able to answer questions about the character if he needed it.

8. Henry Bowers — played by Nicholas Hamilton and Teach Grant:

Warner Bros.

Fun fact: Hamilton praised Teach's performance and said he took his Henry and "upped him by 1,000."

9. Gretta Keene — played by Megan Charpentier and Juno Rinaldi:

Fun fact: OK, this isn't a fun fact, but I used an IRL photo of Juno here because there are no publicly released images of "old" Gretta yet, but you get the idea!
