Is it me, or are the kid actors getting all the goods in the horror genre? I ain’t complaining. Perhaps you might be a bit confused as to who Jackson Robert Scott is, but if you watched (or read) the most recent IT, it would be pretty clear to you: Jackson Robert Scott played the ill-fated role of one little Georgie.

Chances are good you’ll see Scott as little Georgie again in IT: CHAPTER 2 — freakin the ever-loving snot out of you.
