In May we posted (HERE) about the actors up for role of Peter Parker Spiderman 4.
The winner is...
He wasn't our first choice and he didn't even get first or second in our poll but here's his info:
Though born in Los Angeles, the 27 year-old moved to the UK as a child where he made a name for himself on British television such as Sugar Rush and the Red RidingThe Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, he's set to possibly turn some heads in the upcoming film The Social Network, where he will play Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin. While he does bring experience to the table, his age may be something working against him. If the film reboot decides to start with Peter Parker in High School, then Garfield will be nearly 30 year-old by the time the film would presumably get released. That doesn't make for much staying power if the sequels are to be released in 2-3 year intervals.
He'll only be getting $500,000 for the first one - and we say only because Toby McGuire banked $4 mil for his first - with Garfield's salaries for the sequels going into the millions - Toby's went into the tens of millions!
And on the rumor mill, Anton Yelchin (best known recently from the Star Trek movie) may be playing Harry Osborn. We love this guy!
What do you think of the new Peter Parker?
