I Like Mike

Because we were literally just talking about the It: Chapter 2 movie in our last post I considered just updating that one with this new-to-me news, but then I stumbled upon the above picture of the actors Isaiah Mustafa and Matthew Daddario (co-stars in the Shadowhunters series) giving me something fresh to dream about all weekend long and I thought to myself you know what, let's give this its own post. 

The new-to-me news is that Mustafa, probably best known for being the hot guy in all those Old Spice commercials (although his acting career has kept rolling along I see, glancing at his IMDb page now), was hired to play adult Mike in the second It movie - this was announced two weeks ago but I missed it until I saw his name today listed alongside the news that Xavier Dolan's taking on a small but vital role in the sequel. 

Mustafa's Mike completes the adult cast for the Loser's Club, alongside Jessica Chastain as Beverly, James McAvoy as Bill, Jay Ryan as Ben, Bill Hader as Richie, James Ransone as Eddie, and Andy Bean as Stanley. Click on any of those links for our posts, which paint the portrait of a very very sex cast that we're talking about getting traumatized by a floppy clown monster here.
