Bill Skarsgård may play a demonic scourge in Stephen King’s It, but he’s just like you and me! Skarsgård is the brother of True Blood and Big Little Lies star Alexander, and his big bro couldn’t help trolling little Pennywise at the film’s Hollywood premiere.
It is Bill’s most high-profile role in years, and Alexander couldn’t help pulling the old fake celeb sighting as his brother was photographed by the press. Is that…Pennywise without his makeup? Is he…hot??
Seriously, guys, I think that’s him. Will he sign my balloon?
A lot of this was just Alexander pretending to be utterly chuffed by his little brother’s mere existence. He’s real! He’s here! He’s not a clown!
No, he’s not a wax figure, a hologram, or a hallucination. He’s the same little dweeb you grew up with, guys.
But what would success be without a brother to keep you grounded? Looks like the Skarsgårds are used to poking at each other’s egos, lest they over inflate and float away like — oof, never mind.
At least our Pennywise looks like a standup guy who can take a joke, as does that creep from Monterey who messed with Nicole Kidman.
It releases in theaters Sept. 8.
