I would love to see Channing Tatum as Ben. Seriously! This is not a googly eyed choice--Tatum's not my personal cup of tea at all, but the kid looks like him!
I could see Channing as Ben. Channing isn't his original slim hunky self now as he's put on some weight so it could work.

Isn't adult Ben thin, though?
...yes, lost the baby fat and bulked up some....
Yes, adult Ben is thinner. Channing isn't 'fat' but he has gained some poundage (since his Magic Mike stripper days) so he would probably be a good fit for an adult Ben.

I don't know either of the 2 actors jsut announced for Eddie and Stan. They do resemble Jack, and Wyatt though. I'm really glad it looks like James McAvoy was cast as Bill, he's gonna be awesome. Jessica is gonna be an awesome Beverly, and Bill Hader is gonna nail it as Richie. It's gonna be interesting to see who they get for the others. I hope they make an annoucement about if all of the kids will be back for their flashback stuff.

I had to look up Bill Hader but now that I see who he is, I think that's a great choice for Richie

The Old Spice guy? ;;D
I'm not sure if I've ever seen this guy, but he does resemble Chosen. Just like I'm not familiar with the ones playing Eddie and Stan as well. I have seen James McAvoy in a number of things so I know he's gonna be awesome as Bill. Jessica Chastain and Bill Hader are gonna nail it as Beverly and Richie. I always liked Jay Ryan from The CW's series of Beauty and the Beast, and was hoping he would get another role. Good to see him in my most anticipated movie of 2019 so far.
