Sean P Hayes

  1. Cheyenne Jackson, 6 Dance Lessons In 6 Weeks, TV, 2013. Direct from the ruthless news anchor in the the pilot of The Onion Presents: The News, Jackson inherited Gena Rowlands’ high-spirited dance instructor from the Will & Grace star, 1998-2006.
  2. James McAvoy, It Chapter Two, 2018.  At one time The Penguin, The Rock, Peter Quill, Harry Potter, Deadpool, The Green Hornet and Doctor Who were suggested for the adult Bill Denbrough – ie, Danny De Vito, Dwayne Johnson, Chris Pratt, Daniel Radcliffe, Ryan Reynolds, Seth Rogan, David Tennant. Also in the mix: Zac Efron, Will Ferrell, Sean Hayes, Ashton Kutcher, Seth Rogan and such off-the-wall outsiders as UK comics Russell Brand, James Corden, Eddie Izzard and Matt Lucas!  McAvoy was the real McCoy – and one of the biggest Stephen King fans around. Bill Skarsgård had more fun as Pennywise this time.  No literal nightmares about fighting the clown, no kid actors scared by him in scenes, his five-hour make-up cut by half  and less dialogue…  in the 262nd of King’s staggering 313 screen credits. (King Kameo: The pawnbroker).
