Bill Skarsgard, who plays Pennywise the Clown in the upcoming film adaptation of Stephen King’s “IT,” has joined the cast of another King-related work – Hulu’s upcoming “Castle Rock” series.
The psychological-horror series is set in the Stephen King multiverse in a small Maine town. The aim is to combine the “mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works.”
Skarsgard, who won’t be reprising his role in the series, will instead take on the role of a young man with an unusual legal problem. He joins a cast that includes Andre Holland, Melanie Lynskey, Jane Levy and Sissy Spacek.
The series reunites Hulu, King, J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television following their collaboration on the event series “11.22.63”.
