Stephen R Hart

  1. Bill Skarsgård, It, 2016.   Pennywise rumours included Jim Carrey, Mark Rylance, Tilda Swinton and, naturally, Johnny Depp and Jackie Earl Haley when Tim Curry passed on reprising his 1990 creation. Ben Mendelsohn, Hollywood’s busiest Aussie since 2010, proved too pricey. Will Poulter was chosen by director Cary Joli Fukunaga, before quitting over artistic differences (true for once). New helmer Andy Muschietti said Poulter was a great option, but was not free for  the delayed shoot. Andy auditioned Stephen R Hart, Doug Jones (future Saru in Star Trek: Discovery, 2017-2021), Brian Safi, Timothy Simmons, Hugo Weaving but gave Pennywise to Stellan Skarsgård’s fourth son (five of his six boys are actors). Bill has Strabismus – he can simultaneously move his eyes in different directions. Great for such an extreme character… "beyond sociopath, because he's not even human. I'm playing just one of the beings It creates." Tim Curry thought Bill “very clever, very good.” “Spectacularly scary, the stuff of nightmare," added Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers. The public agreed and the 225th of King’s staggering 313 screen credits was his biggest hit!  A sequel was guaranteed - and made in 2018.
