Bill Skarsgard (Pennywise)
Pennywise, or IT, is the main antagonist in both films. He can take on many forms but chooses to be a clown. Pennywise and Bill Skarsgard made clowns scary again, though I don’t think they ever really stopped being frightening. Bill Skarsgard worked on another Stephen King production in 2018 and 2019, Castle Rock.
Skarsgard’s next TV series was AMC’s Soulmates. He has also appeared in a series of indie and big-budget films, including Assassination Nation, Deadpool 2, Villains, Nine Days, and The Devil All the Time. He will next reunite with his The Devil All the Time co-star Tom Holland in the Russo Brothers’ Cherry. He will also co-star in Naked Singularity, a film also starring John Boyega and Olivia Cooke. It’s the directorial debut of Chase Palmer, who co-wrote the screenplay for IT: Chapter One. Skarsgard will also co-star in the adaptation of Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried.
