For the 3rd time in as many days, we’re sad to report on the passing of a member of our extended horror family. Harry Anderson, best-known for playing adult Richie Tozier in 1990’s IT (directed by Tommy Lee Wallace) has died at his home in Asheville, North Carolina on Monday; he was 65-years-old.
It’s uncertain whether Anderson will appear in the upcoming documentary Pennywise: The Story of IT, said to include interviews with over 50 cast and crew of the 1990 production. At the very least, we can expect to see him in previously unseen behind-the-scenes footage.
Stunned by the passing of Harry Anderson, one of my comedy and magic inspirations growing up. We became friendly over the years – he worked at the @MagicCastle_AMA and recently sold me a handful of great magic memorabilia. My sincere condolences to his family. #RIP pic.twitter.com/k9FITPIaBS
