In case you’re of a younger generation and don’t understand why people are afraid of clowns, Will Poulter and director Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) are going to remind you. The 22-year-old actor will portray the evil Pennywise who frightens the living bejesus out of everyone he comes across and somehow manages to appear at the worst possible time. If you’re scared, just remember that Poulter was in We’re The Millers and rapped TLC’s Waterfall. Via People.
