You guys DO know that the kids from part 1 had a say in who plays them as adults, right? That's probably a big reason for all the unknowns. They were picking their adult counterparts themselves.

They did? They should have 0 say. Though the adult actors and the kid actors should be forced to hang out so the adults can "get" the kid actors, and I'm sure they did that.

I agree 100%.

Who gave the child actors a voice? I have not heard that one before.

It was something Mr D read about the movies. Might have been on IMDb, or Entertainment Weekly. But yes, the idea was for the kids to have a hand in choosing their adult counterparts for a better "fit" to who the kids were. I think it's an interesting idea- why spend tons on famous actors, if they don't fit the bill? These aren't just kids, they are playing a role where the two parts HAVE to make sense and fit together. So maybe they SHOULD habe a say.

So Jessica Chastain has filmed all of her scenes and has gone home, while everyone else is still filming.

Seems like the theory that they blew all their budget on her (and McAvoy) is probably true. You know, schedule all of the scenes involving the most expensive actress into the beginning most days (even if they're out of order) to get them done faster and out the door to reduce their going fee. Seems sound.

Makes sense, but I really don't get why anyone felt a need to cast a couple of big names for this. The kids were all pretty much unknown (except for the kid from Stranger Things)...

You kind of have to cast unknowns for a group of little kids. You know, you like that little kid from that movie you saw 2, 3 years ago? Well, they're already too old now. The adults, not the same thing. I kind of just wanted to see a fun name for Ben.

Sorta feels like they received their budget for Chapter Two before they even realized the first one was a hit.

But will we be able to see Bill as Bill, or will we just see McAvoy? Because it took me most to the end of the movie before I could see Trashmouth as Trashmouth instead of Mike from Stranger Things.
