    Who should play Pennywise? My list of favorites for the role are as follows:

    Daniel Day Lewis
    John Malcovich
    Christoph Waltz
    Vincent D'Onofrio

    I remember having awful nightmares as a child after seeing the first part of the miniseries. Pennywise haunted me mercilessly. The nightmares ended when I watched part 2 and saw that stupid giant spider. It was lame enough to my young mind that I ceased to be scared of that evil clown.

    I think Andy Serkis would be a good choice. Especially if they'll be having IT display itself as several movie monsters.

    Grundletaint is a pretty good name for a terrifying clown.

    I remember crushing hard on the red head. she was nekkid in that cat movie with natasia kinsky (my irresponsible parents took me to see that cat movie in a movie theater) so I have everlasting boners for kinsky and that redhead as my first forays of on screen nudity (my parents tried to shield my eyes but I saw glorious bewbies through their fingers).


    obvious choices for penny wise the clown would be:
    gary oldman

    interesting choice could be:
    matt damon (i really think he could pull it off plus he could do a regional new england accent).

    stunt casting:
    john leguizamo :lol:


    i don't think you can top the original of tim curry though (because it was before internet/google) and when people would say that's the same actor from Clue it would blow people's mind.

    Paul Giamatti might be interesting.

    ^thats a home run right there, but he might start doing Paul Giamatti-type things and you start feeling bad for the clown and wanting to take the clown in, pat him on the back, and buy him a meal.

    you need gravitas and a underlying sense that the guy is huge prick - maybe a john malkovich.

    So there are many details on this now and the director has been pretty liberal about posting stuff on his instagram about it. I'm very excited. I am re-reading the book. I read it when I was in like 4th grade (probably shouldn't have) but it brings back a lot of memories. I actually read the book as a sort of catharsis after seeing the movie. I was always a very frightened child and had loads on anxiety. Seeing the movie put me in a funk for a long time (both this book and fears of being abducted by aliens).

    That's a pretty beat up copy. You could find Viking First Editions for cheap on Ebay.
