So late last week, word leaked that Spider-Man 4 (along with Spider-Man 5 no less) was picking up steam.
[UPDATE: Sony has informed Coming Soon that Tobey Maguire is not being replaced for Spider-Man 4. – Jamie]
Now according to our buddies at Latino Review, a number of young, lesser-known actors are being considered to replace the departing Tobey Maguire to play Spiderman and his dorky alter-ego Peter Parker.
Although they were quick to say that “no offers have been made”, the top choices are Patrick Fugit (i.e. best known for Cameron Crowe’s masterpiece Almost Famous) and Michael Angarano (i.e. the lead in the suprisingly good Sky High from a few years back!)
I have absolutely nothing against either actor. Both certainly have the right look and are young enough to carry the series for a couple of installments.
However, if this nerd had a say in the casting, my vote would go to Bret Harrison – the lead of the insanely underrated television-series Reaper.
Not only can he act (which obviously matters) and physically play the part, but this guy has the perfect sense of humor to give Webhead his wise-cracks back on the silver screen.
But then again…maybe that’s just me…
