James Ransone and Andy Bean Join ‘It: Chapter 2’ as Loser Club Members Eddie and Stanley

It: Chapter 2 has just cast another couple members of the Losers Club. James Ransone and Andy Bean have joined the upcoming sequel to one of 2017’s massive hits. Ransone will play the adult Eddie Kaspbrak while Bean steps into the role of adult Stanley Uris. They both join previously announced Jessica Chastain (as adult Beverly Marsh). Bill Hader and James McAvoy are still in talks.

This is the type of casting I can get behind. I always thought that the sequel should go with lesser known talent for the adult Losers Club. Jessica Chastain just seems too familiar of a face to disappear into the role of Beverly Marsh. The same thing would happen if those fancastings of Chris Pratt as adult Ben happened. Ransone and Bean are not yet mainstream famous, but this film definitely could do that, so I am all for this casting. It was one of my favorite films of 2017 so anticipation is certainly high for me in hopes that this sequel lives up to the growing hype.

It: Chapter 2 hits theaters September 6, 2019.


What do you think of the casting so far? Who do you want to see cast as the remaining members of the Losers Club?
