Bill Skarsgård is an undeniably delightful-looking human — until he smiles like a homicidal clown.
The 27-year-old Swedish actor stars as neighbourhood killer clown Pennywise in the new adaptation of Stephen King’s novel It. He showed off his killer smile on Conan on Tuesday, without the makeup.
“You have easily the most evil, demonic smile I think I’ve seen in all of horror — and I’ve worked with Andy Richter for a long time.” says O’Brien.
Skarsgård apparently learned the technique from his brother Gustaf when he was just ten years old. Yeah, not cute.
We guess this is the latest confirmation that Pennywise has earned his place as internet’s new crush because it’s a strange world.
