Andrew Garfield has been announced as the new Spider-man. It's a good choice, I have to say. He's certainly talented — just check out his performances in Boy A and Red Riding for proof of that.
I've interviewed him a couple of times, on the sets of Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus, when he was wearing a wig, false breasts and a dress, as well as Never Let Me Go. The 26-year-old British actor also stars in David Fincher's upcoming The Social Network.
"From the first time we saw him in The Social Network, to his glorious screen test, which floored all of us, we knew that we had found our new Peter Parker,” said Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures, in a statement.
