Beware, losers. Pennywise is BACK.

In a follow-up to 2017's IT reboot, Pennywise the Dancing Clown is returning to the big screen in IT Chapter 2 to terrorise the now-adult Losers Club and a new generation of children.

Look at that face. It's the stuff of nightmares. *shivers*

However, underneath the garish makeup and grotesque smile, the actor who plays Pennywise a.k.a. Bill Skarsgård is actually a total babe in real life. <3

High cheekbones, chiselled jawline, and that signature intense stare... now that's a face we wouldn't mind haunting our dreams. ;)

Sure, he's got the brooding bad boy look down pat, but he's kind of a cutie pie too. Just look at not-at-all-creepy smile!

Plus, boy looks reeeeaaally good in a suit. #suitup

If you're wondering why his last name sounds familiar, that's because Bill came from a family of actors. In fact, you might've heard of his dad Stellan Skarsgård or his brothers Alexander and Gustaf.

You've probably seen Bill's dad Stellan Skarsgård in movies such as Good Will Hunting, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Mamma Mia!, as well as in several Marvel movies including Thor and The Avengers.

Alexander Skarsgård (pictured above, right) has starred in hit TV shows True Blood and Big Little Lies as well as in The Legend of Tarzan, while Gustaf Skarsgård (also pictured above, left) was in HBO's Westworld and is currently starring in the History Channel series Vikings.

Aside from playing an evil clown, you've probably seen him as the short-lived Zeitgeist in Deadpool 2 as well as in Atomic Blonde (alongside IT Chapter 2 co-star James McAvoy) or Allegiant
