An Exclusive Interview With Stephen King
Stephen King wasn’t planning to appear in It: Chapter Two. As Anthony Breznican writes, the best-selling author “has little interest in rivaling Stan Lee or Alfred Hitchcock’s litany of creator cameos, having significantly cut back on his screen appearances over the years. He prefers to focus on writing, and has a new book, The Institute—about psychic children who are forcibly rounded up by a sinister organization—hitting stores on Tuesday.” But as King told Breznican in an exclusive interview, he wound up being convinced to do a cameo in the blockbuster sequel—largely because it gave King, playing a shopkeeper, an opportunity to make snide comments to Bill Denbrough, the Stephen King–esque writer character played by James McAvoy. Much like King, Denbrough often gets ribbed by passers-by, particularly those who don’t think the novelist’s endings are up to snuff. “Yep,” King told Breznican with a laugh. “It was a huge pleasure to do that.”
