Buzzfeed brings our attention to the actor who’s playing Pennywise in the terrifying-looking film adaptation of the terrifying Stephen King book, It. (Related: Almost everyone I know read this book at a much too young age — good job, parents! — and I believe it’s at least 50-percent of the reason humans are so scared of clowns. I haven’t tested this theory yet in any sort of scientific fashion, but I know in my bones that I am correct.)
Anyway, in a shocking turn of events, the dude who plays Pennywise is not at all grotesque, and actually quite handsome. Will wonders never cease!? His name is Bill Skarsgård, he’s 26 years old, and the below pictures of him are anything but disgusting.
Also, do you recognize the name Skarsgård?! Well, that’s because he’s the little brother of True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård!
Scary hotness runs in the family! Congratulations, Skarsgårds!
