Ever since IT was released, many of us have been curious as to who would be playing the adult counterparts of the lovable Losers’ Club. Jay Ryan has been cast in the role of the adult Ben Hanscom.

Jay Ryan’s acting history consists of Mary Kills People (eOne/Hulu), a live stage version of Trainspotting, the miniseries Top of the Lake, andthe lead on CW’s series Beauty and the Beast. Also extremely interesting, Ryan’s first stage gig was The Packer in which he played eight characters. Talk about impressive!
