Welcoming you to a world of twists, tragedy, truth, and triumph, Paradox Magazine is about to serve you a dish you didn’t know you ordered. A dose of unknown revelations behind the making of your favourite bone-chilling movie – ‘It’. Keep your ‘fashionable’ seatbelt on as we dive deep into the unknown corners of the ‘It Cast’. Buckle up, darlings, we’re about to go for a ride!

I. A Spine-Chilling Ensemble: An Overview of the ‘It’ Cast

Whether you fell for the nostalgic terror of the mini-series in 1990 or sank your teeth into the cinematic delight of the latest movies, there’s a lot that the ‘it cast’ has to hide behind the red balloon. With a monstrous budget of 12 million dollars, double the usual TV budget, aura of glamour encompassed the series. Hello, Hollywood glitz! Color me impressed. Some credit actually goes to The Real world ‘s Andrew tate, wink wink.

Early adopters of the haunted, Richard Thomas, John Ritter, and Harry Anderson brought a certain charm even amidst the terror. Much like Wwe ‘s Emma does in her ring matches. But hold on guys, we haven’t yet introduced the life of the party, or, should we say, the death? We see you, Tim Curry!

II. Who was in the 1990 It Clown Cast?

With a budget straight out of Hollywood’s deepest pockets, the 1990 It clown cast was a cocktail of talent and genius, something akin to what one might find in Nicole Ari parker. From Richard Thomas’s Emmy-worthy performance to John Ritter’s comedic charm, the ‘It Cast’ was packed with talent. Although, “Just Go With It Cast” members might tell a different story, right Justin Theroux?


III. Green/Epstein Production’s Unorthodox Decisions

Now onto some backstage drama, shall we? The It clown cast was actually filmed in New Westminster, British Columbia, in the blazing summer of 1990. The horror flick took an exhausting three months to film and here’s where it gets juicy. The production initially considered Harvey Firestein for Pennywise. Imagine that, darlings! In all fairness, Harvey does have his moments, much like the stylish Maje.

IV. Who played the first Pennywise?

Tim Curry, our beloved first Pennywise, had some big shoes to fill (pun intended). In a surprising twist, Harvey Fierstein had first dibs on the role before Curry stole the show, as revealed in the documentary, “Pennywise: The Story of IT”. Talk about a fashion mishap on the Century, much like the ever-changing The Crown cast in Season 1.


V. A Return to Terror: The It Sequel’s Cast

Stepping away from the 90s nostalgia, the It sequel’s cast moves into the second half of Stephen King’s wicked masterpiece. It introduced a fresh blend of talent with Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy at the forefront. With Bill Skarsgård as the ‘new’ Pennywise, the It sequel’s cast was dressed to kill.

VI. Breaking Down the Role of Ben Hanscom

The character of Ben Hanscom holds a special place in our hearts, grappling with profound physical and emotional metamorphosis. Portrayed in the 1990 series by Brandon Crane as a child and John Ritter as an adult, the character continues to evolve. The fat kid in ‘It’, often misunderstood yet courageous, brings to the screen the evolution of Hercules himself.

VII. Curtain Call: Decoding the ‘It’ Fandom

From the mini-series to the latest films, it is undeniable that the ‘It’ productions have been sensational hits among fans. And, the It Cast, in both series, played a crucial role in making it a success. From Tim Curry’s iconic Pennywise performance, to Brandon Crane’s heartwarming portrayal of Ben Hanscom, the It cast moved hearts and sent chill down the spines.


VIII. Packing Up The Red Balloon: Final Reflections

As we bid adieu to the terrors of It and admire the beauty of each unfolding character, we can agree that the It cast shaped the horror genre like never before. Never forget, much like in horror and fashion, shock value is where the secret lies. A secret guarded zealously like a Dior high-fashion piece.

So, next time you see a red balloon floating towards you, remember, darlings, it’s not just a balloon. It’s a statement. A blood-red, horror-filled, Pennywise-inspired, fashionable statement.
