Unpopular opinion: Kevin bacon would be a good Henry Bowers.
Darn right he would, the boy who played Henry Bowers looks like he could have been Kevin Bacons son. Assuming Henry Bowers didn't actually die in the sewers after being pushed down the well by Mike and makes it into Chapter Two.

In one of the old leaked scripts from i think 2016? he is alive in Chapter two, but who knows what direction they'll take. I hope they do include an adult Henry, the scene in the book with him and his dead friends in Juniper Hills is so iconic. And I will admit, the Miniseries scene wasn't too bad as well.

I thought people might think he's a tad overrated, but I think him and Nicolas Hamilton look like they could be related so he'd be an awesome choice for Henry.
They look so much alike that I was convinced he had to be one of Bacon's kids (keep in mind, I don't know much about celebrities' families--lol). He might be a tad too old, but meh. Henry lived a hard life.

I adore James McAvoy, but can't picture him in this.
I'm not very familiar with him. I think the only thing I've seen him in was "Split". I thought he did an outstanding job in that, though.

He was the actor in Split, wasn't he?......I'm awful at remembering things like that. I hope it was him, or I'm gonna feel kinda dumb.
Oh, well, won't be the first time :biggrin2:

Bill Hader would be so friggin awesome, although I think Seth Rogen would have been really cool as well I'm also pretty pumped to hear about how good James McAvoy was. (I'm not man enough to watch. :))

Sometimes when scripts get leaked they get changed or they have already been changed and that's why they were leaked. Chapter 2 might be grueling to watch though if it's just the adults. In the 1990 version of It the children's portion was way more interesting than the adults section of the film. Hopefully they split it into flashbacks and show some of the more interesting parts we didn't get to see in Chapter One.
