No, not Tom Sturridge or RPattz. The dandy dandelion in the middle who is making RPattz’s magical follicles feel inadequate (Why do you think he’s wearing a hat?) has been cast in the title role in Sony’s reboot of the Spider-Man franchise. Sony announced last night that 26-year-old Andrew Garfield will stuff his bits into Tobey Maguire’s old leotard for the next Spider-Man 3D movie, which will start playing in theaters on July 3, 2012. HA! Like we’ll all be around then.
Sony reportedly broke up with Tobey and Kiki Dunst, because they didn’t want to leave a giant stack of cash on their nightstands anymore. So Sony decided to put out a totally brand new set of Spider-Man movies with a cheaper cast led by the fancy lion up there. Marc Webb, the director of this shit, had this to say about Andrew:
“Though his name may be new to many, those who know this young actor’s work understand his extraordinary talents. He has a rare combination of intelligence, wit, and humanity. Mark my words, you will love Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker.”
Andrew’s credits include The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Lion for Lambs, Boy A and The Social Network.
Unfortunately for all of us, that picture of Andrew is kind of old so he no longer has a luscious mane that makes him look like a European hair dresser who drives a 1980s Ferrari convertible and sleeps on a waterbed covered with satin leopard print sheets.
That Spidey shit doesn’t shoot until December so that gives Andrew enough time to grow his lush waterfall of hair out again, because the world needs a Spider-Man who looks like he just stepped out of a salon (salon glooooooow).
