Speculation over which actors will be playing the grown-up version of The Losers Club from Andy Muschietti’s IT since the sequel was first confirmed in 2017. Jessica Chastain has been a forerunner for the part of Bev as both a fan-favorite and a previous collaborator of Muschietti (they worked together on Mama); I say “has been” because her participation is now confirmed!
While Chastain is the only confirmed Loser cast so far for IT: Chapter Two, but James McAvoy and Bill Hader are now in negotiations to star as Bill and Richie respectively, roles played by Jaeden Lieberher and Finn Wolfhard. While the script is still being finalized, we’re being told that Richie grows up to be a DJ.
