It was only a few weeks ago that it was announced who would be playing adult Stanley and Eddie in IT: Chapter Two. That meant there was only two more kids left to cast as an adult, and the time has come to add another to the list. Jay Ryan has been cast as adult Ben Hanscom in the sequel to IT. Ben was originally played by Jeremy Ray Taylor.
Jay Ryan has flown under the radar for many. One of his larger roles is his role in Mary Kills People. From there he snagged more and more films, leading up to a major role in the popular CW show, Beauty and the Beast. Now Ryan will be joining the ensemble that already has Bill Hader, James Mcavoy, Jessica Chastain, Andy Bean, James Ransone, and of course, Bill Skarsgård.
IT: Chapter Two has seemed to find its adult Loser’s Club and it looks amazing. Now we just have to wait and see who will end up playing Mike. Andy Muschietti is set to come back and direct the film as well. After taking place as one of the best horror films of this generation, it will be interesting to see if they can top their previous bar. What are your thoughts on this casting decision? Are you excited to see the adult ensemble? Let us know over at SuperBroMovies! – JB Baker
