Gender is optional for both characters, but I played as mother and daughter. As Karin’s mom, it’s my job to make sure the child is fed, clothed, entertained and protected. This takes place through a simple budget management system, in which I balance my meager post-war income and my time as a single parent, against Karin’s needs.

Stephen King's novel "It" is actually two parallel stories, about a group of seven kids fighting the monstrous clown Pennywise, and then returning to finish the job as adults. With "It: Chapter One" a huge horror movie success, here's who we think should pick up the reins in "It: Chapter Two."

Bill Denbrough (Jaeden Lieberher): Edward Norton

An essential part of Bill Denbrough is that, as a child, he struggled with a stuttering problem. Jaeden Lieberher did a solid job dealing with the stutter as the leader of the Losers Club. Edward Norton, who has a decent physical resemblance to Lieberher, has proven to be one of the best stutterers possibly ever in his turn in the 1996 thriller "Primal Fear." When he returns to Derry, the stutter does to, giving Norton a chance to deploy those skills again.

2 adults, 2 kids shot in suburban Denver parking lot

  2 adults, 2 kids shot in suburban Denver parking lot Authorities say a person of interest is in custody following the Thursday shooting of two adults and two children in a parking lot in suburban Denver. Westminster police said a vehicle seen leaving the area was located about three hours after the shooting, and investigators are interviewing the driver. A police spokeswoman said she did not have any information on the conditions of the victims, and it was not immediately clear what led to the shooting. Officers who arrived at the scene found four people with gunshot wounds outside at the Cedarwood Square Office Complex, which is about 14 miles (23 kilometers) northwest of Denver.

With " It : Chapter One" a huge horror movie success, here ' s who we think should pick up the reins in " It : Chapter Two ." During an interview with Moviefone, the " It : Chapter One" cast discussed their picks for who would play their adult counterparts.

Jaeden Lieberher's Choice: Christian Bale

During an interview with Moviefone, the "It: Chapter One" cast discussed their picks for who would play their adult counterparts. Lieberher said he'd like for Christian Bale to play the grown-up version of Bill, and Bale is known for taking tough acting roles. He's got few that might qualify as horror, though, and hasn't ever had to act scared of a demonic clown or its many other manifestations. But nobody let him wear the 2018 equivalent of 1990 Bill's ponytail, which one assumes would be a manbun.

Actually playing Bill Denbrough: James McAvoy

Bill's quiet leadership fits pretty well with James McAvoy's aesthetic in a lot of movies, especially his recent superhero turn as Professor X in the "X-Men" movies. He can also pull out some deep creepiness, as we saw in the M. Night Shyamalan vehicle "Split," making McAvoy an interesting choice to fight the evil Pennywise.

  Tom Brady sees the end coming 'sooner rather than later' <p>Patriots quarterback Tom Brady obviously is far closer to the end of his career than the beginning. It’s still not clear how close he may be. But he knows it’s coming.</p>“I think about it more now than I used to,” Brady tells Oprah Winfrey in an interview that debuts this weekend, via the Boston Herald. “I think I’m seeing there’s definitely an end coming sooner, rather than later.

Stephen King’ s novel “ It ” is actually two parallel stories, about a group of seven kids fighting the monstrous clown Pennywise, and then returning to finish the job as adults . An essential part of Bill Denbrough is that, as a child, he struggled with a stuttering problem. Jaeden Lieberher did a solid.

Which brings us to an even more important question: Who will play the kids as adults ? Jackson Robert Scott won't have an adult version of him in Chapter Two . As Georgie, he was killed in Chapter One, with no chance of growing up.

Beverly Marsh (Sophia Lillis): Amy Adams

It's actually a bit weird how much Sophia Lillis looks like Amy Adams, selling her as the grown-up version of Beverly. Lillis' turn as Bev was actually a more brave and often heroic version than in the 1990 adaptation, and Adams' experience as Lois Lane in "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" and as an alien researcher in "Arrival" would probably be valuable.

Sophia Lillis' Choice: Jessica Chastain

Chastain is also a pretty good look-alike for Lillis, and her work definitely suggests she could handle both being very afraid of an evil clown and gritting her teeth in order to fight it. She's also got some horror chops, having taken a turn adding creepiness to the situation in Guillermo del Toro's "Crimson Peak."

Actually cast as Beverly Marsh: Jessica Chastain

Sophia Lillis obviously knows what she's talking about when it comes to adult Beverly, since Chastain really is taking on the role.

Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger won't let his kids play contact football before 5th grade

  Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger won't let his kids play contact football before 5th grade The veteran quarterback held his 12th annual Football ProCamp for kids from first through eighth grades on Sunday.During his 12th annual Football ProCamp for kids from first through eighth grades on Sunday, the Steelers quarterback acknowledged the advantages of kids playing competitive sports but said fundamentals must come first.

We have no idea who will play the adult versions of the "Losers" yet, but here are our choices for the It sequel cast. And that’ s why we’re here to help. Jacob Hall, Ben Pearson, and Ethan Anderton teamed up brainstorm who they ’d cast as the grown-up Losers in It : Chapter 2 . We only had one real

Casting should happen sometime soon, but we’re guessing Andy Muschietti and company already have a general idea of who they ’d like to play in the second part. IT is currently playing in theaters everywhere, while IT : Chapter 2 is scheduled to hit theaters September 6th, 2019.

Ben Hanscom (Jeremy Ray Taylor): Chris Hemsworth

In "It," the 1990 TV movie adaptation, Ben is an overweight kid but gets in shape in his teens. He comes back as John Ritter, looking pretty good in a vest and beard. The ultimate "grew up to be hot" transformation for "It" would be Chris Hemsworth taking on the role of Ben. It might be overdoing it a little, but it would give Hemsworth a chance to fight some horror movie monsters after getting epicly offed in "Cabin in the Woods."

Jeremy Ray Taylor's Choice: Chris Pratt

Since he actually played the character, Taylor might actually have the better sense for casting here. Pratt transformed his body pretty significantly for his role in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" movies. He'd have to resist being the group's funnyman, though — that's not Ben, and the role is already filled by Richie.

Actually cast as Ben Hanscom: Jay Ryan

New Zealand native Jay Ryan will take on the role of older Ben, which might not be as cool as becoming Thor, but still a solid glow up for the kid. Ryan is probably best known for his role in "Beauty and the Beast" on the CW, and previously appeared on Sundance TV and BBC 2's mystery "Top of the Lake."

Hundreds of children wait in Border Patrol facility in Texas

  Hundreds of children wait in Border Patrol facility in Texas Hundreds of children are waiting away from their parents inside a Border Patrol holding facility in South Texas, with groups of 20 or more children to a single cage. The U.S. Border Patrol briefly allowed reporters inside the facility Sunday. There are bottles of water, bags of chips and large foil sheets serving as blankets. Nearly 2,000 children have been taken from their parents since the Trump administration announced its "zero tolerance" policy against people illegally entering the U.S.One teenager told an advocate who visited that she was helping care for a young child she didn't know because the child's aunt was somewhere else in the facility. She said she had to show others in her cell how to change the girl's diaper.

But if there was unlimited money to throw around — which there might now be, considering people are flocking to the theater by the clown car — here ’ s who the youngsters in the Losers’ Club told Entertainment Weekly they want to play their adult counterparts.

In a recent MTV interview, the young stars of the film revealed which adult actors should play them in IT : Chapter Two , and while some of those names are interesting (and make sense), we thought it would be fun to add our picks to the mix.

Richie Tozier (Finn Wolfhard): Paul Rudd

Jokester Richie Tozier grows up to be a radio disc jockey in King's novel, famous for doing a variety of voices. In the 1990 adaptation, he's a stand-up comic, and in both versions he's pretty successful. Rudd's a proven comedian with plenty of drama chops as well, and he's fought at least one monster in his movie career, taking on Michael Myers in "Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers."

Finn Wolfhard's Choice: Bill Hader

Bill Hader was actually my first choice too, but Wolfhard stole it. As a "Saturday Night Live" alumnus, Hader can definitely handle Richie's humor, and he and Wolfhard actually look a lot alike. In fact, Hader is kind of perfect for the role, and it'd be an interesting change of pace to see him outside of a comedy.

Actually cast as Richie Tozier: Bill Hader

Like Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard nailed his casting idea. "SNL" alumnus Bill Hader looks quite a bit like Richie. The novel version of adult Richie wears contacts instead of Coke bottle glasses, but if the movie gave Hader the spectacles, he'd really look like Finn Wolfhard's grown-up counterpart.

Mike Hanlon (Chosen Jacobs): Jordan Peele

In the book and 1990 adaptation, Mike Hanlon is the only member of the Losers Club who stays in Derry. He works as a librarian and keeps watch in case Pennywise ever shows back up in town. Mike's role might change in "It: Chapter Two," since the historian role he plays in the book fell to Ben in the movie, but Peele could still pull off the bookish but determined version of Hanlon. Plus, Peele's a major horror fan.

Here ' s why you should rekindle your love for play . Among adults , computers are the most popular gaming device, but among young adults gaming consoles are Your source for play therapy toys, games, sandplay items, and much more. But play is just as pivotal for adults as it is for kids .

But the real question is who would play the adult versions of our heroes? The kids themselves gave their answers to CinemaBlend , and I gotta say, if this dream team of Hollywood A-listers is down for it , so am I.

Chosen Jacobs' Choice: Chadwick Boseman

If the kids from "It: Chapter One" have their way, two Marvel superheroes will show up in the Losers Club, which doesn't sound very loser-y. That said, Boseman would definitely bring the role the gravitas that Mike needs as the "lighthouse keeper" who's waiting for the monster, and who manages to reunite the Losers and convince them to keep their promises.

Actually cast as Mike Hanlon: Isaiah Mustafa

Isaiah Mustafa is probably best known for his role as Luke Garroway on Freeform's "Shadowhunters," and as the ripped Old Spice Guy who isn't Terry Crews. Chosen Jacobs announced the casting on his Instagram feed.

Eddie Kaspbrak (Jack Dylan Grazer): David Tennant

In "It," Eddie is a smaller kid whose mother abuses him for his entire life by constantly trying to make him believe he's sick. As a skinnier guy, Tennant has a similar physicality, but he's also proven he can handle the mix of horror and comedy Jack Dylan Grazer brings to the role in the movie with his role in "Fright Night."

Jack Dylan Grazer's Choice: Jake Gyllenhaal

Gyllenhaal is also a pretty good fit for Eddie's future self. He can handle Eddie's hypochondriac intensity and can handle both the comedy aspects and the horrified freaking out that Grazer brings the character, and it helps that the pair have a similar look.

Stan Uris (Wyatt Oleff): Zach Braff

Of all the Losers, Stan Uris has the toughest time dealing with what he's seen of the creature, and he's come the closest of any of the kids to death. That's a bit of neurosis that Braff could definitely handle as he struggles to come to grips with the promise he made and the need to return to Derry.

Wyatt Oleff's Choice: Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Another good pick from the "It" kids, Gordon-Levitt is definitely someone could handle Stan's overwhelming fear of Pennywise pretty effectively as an actor. We could also stand to see him back in a horror movie after his stint in "Halloween: H20" back in 1998.

Actually cast as Stan Uris: Andy Bean

Andy Bean is set to take on the role of Stan in "IT: Chapter 2," and he has some genre chops to bring with him. Bean has had roles in "Allegiant" and "Transformers: The Last Knight," and also as one of the main cast in the Starz show "Power" for the first three seasons.
