One of my favorite horror movies (based on the best book Stephen King has ever written in my humble opinion) is the made for TV mini-series IT. While the standout of the movie is the great performance of Tim Curry as Pennywise the evil clown that plagues the town of Derry, Maine, the other big selling point of the film is the portion that is set in the characters past. In this half of the film a group of outcast kids do battle with Pennywise and the kid actors all delivered amazing performances. So it got me to thinking…what the hell have those kids been up to since they all starred in this movie?
Jonathan Brandis (Bill Denbrough)
Jonathan went on to star in big screen kiddie movie fare like Sidekicks (with the one and only Chuck Norris) and the gender bending Ladybugs. He followed that up with a starring role on the NBC sci-fi series SEAQUEST 2032. Following SEAQUEST’s cancellation, Brandis went on to appear in forgettable straight-to-dvd films before committing suicide in 2003 at the age of 27.
