IT was a surprisingly huge hit. It virtually turned into the cultural phenomenon of the film season, which was desperately needed in a film season full of countless duds and flops. Of course, with the film being a big success, we now know that the planned sequel is for sure going to happen, and that’s opened the floodgates for conversations surrounding potential casting.

Who would take on the roles of these kids as adults? It’s been the subject of many a film blog article — hell, even we’ve thrown our hat in the ring with our own two cents. However, one role that’s been relatively consistent across the board is Jessica Chastain as Bev.

But is it possible? Speaking with Screen Rant, Chastain herself expressed her interest in It: Chapter 2, saying:

“Well, I love [director and producer] Andy and Barbara [Muschietti]. I worked with them on Andy’s directorial debut, you know, his film, Mama. His first film. And you know, Barbara is one of my best friends so… Listen, of course, I want to work… they’re my friends. They’re like my family. Anything that they’re doing I want to be a part of, so I hope we can make it happen.”

You hear that, folks. It’s much more than just a pipe dream now. It’s now a very real possibility! But is she the best one to take on the role? I personally recommended Amy Adams for the role, and while she’s not a redhead, Heather Graham would also be a different choice.

    My hope is for great appropriate actors that are not household names. Julianne Nicolson is my choice for Bev!!!

  • Jeremy Keeler

    Heather Graham is almost 50. Don’t get me wrong, she’s still a stunner, but she isn’t age appropriate for this role. The adult versions of the kids would be in their 30’s

      I don’t know exactly how old the kids in the movie are, but in the novel they are around 11 and then 38. Heather Graham is 47, so it’s not *that* big of a stretch for her to play 38.

      She’s definitely not my first choice though. I don’t know if she has the intensity and the weight to play an older, traumatized Bev.

    While not as good as an actress I kept seeing a young Kristin Wiig on screen whenever Beverly was on screen. She was my initial choice. Unfortunately she may have lost all her good standing after the GB debacle of 2016.


    Amy Adams please step up!!!
