IT kids share their picks for actors to play them as adults in part 2

One of the aspects I'm most looking forward to once STEPHEN KING'S IT hits on September 8th is checking out how well the kid actors hold up. I've got my fingers-crossed and they all seem charming enough in real life so here's hoping they all "kill" it this September!

Speaking of how charming the kids are, recently they were all (other than Stuttering Bill) speaking at Comic Con and revealed who they would like to see play the adults versions of themselves. Their picks are enduring and in a lot of cases make a ton of sense...

Almost like there have already been discussions with these actors...

You can find their picks, as well as the video of them picking them out - below, but this all reminds me how damn smart it was to split up the books, because if you'd imagine trying to cast IT PART 2 before the first one came out you might struggle to find top quality actors (re: stars) but once the first part hits and hopefully is a new masterpiece, A-list stars should be lining up to be a part of the series.

Here are the kid's picks for their adults:

Richie  - Bill Hader
Bev - Jessica Chastain
Mike - Chadwick Boseman
Eddie - Jake Gyllenhaal
Stan - Joesph Gordon Levitt
Ben - Chris Pratt

Again, Stuttering Bill was not a part of this discussion. Too bad. I'd pick Patrick Wilson.

What do YOU think of the kids casting choices? Who would you cast as the adults? Specifically, who should play Stuttering Bill? Make sure to hit us up on social media and let us know on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!
