Say Hi To Big Ben

We have our Ben! Kiwi actor Jay Ryan - who's been on a ton of TV shows over the past two decades (his first two roles were on Young Hercules and Xena!) but most recently has been seen on Top of the Lake and Mary Kills People - has just signed on to play the character of grown-up "Ben Hanscom" in the second It movie. 

We had been hoping that Jerry O'Connell, who went and got all shredded after famously playing the "chubby kid" in another Stephen King adaptation called Stand By Me, might land the role because that would've been fun (and I would've been able to title this post "Ben and Jerry") but that was not to be. Oh well, I don't hold it against Jay Ryan here though, because...

... I'm too busy wanting to hold other things against him. Ahem. Anyway all of the kids in the "Losers Club" have now been cast except for "Mike Hanlon." I wonder what's taking them so long to cast Mike? You got something better to do, David Oyelowo? In summation here is another gif of Jay Ryan without his shirt on:
