The Amazing Spider-Man 2 looking for Harry Osborn

Last week, casting for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was reported to be underway for Peter Parker’s best friend Harry Osborn. Actors such as Brady Corbet, Dane DeHaan, and Alden Ehrenreich were said to be frontrunners for the position. A source states that the part of Harry Osborn would be “dark and edgy” but according to Sony Pictures, “dark and edgy” is out and “athletic and good looking” is in. Now a new crop of actors are testing for the part. Actors Sam Claflin, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth and Boyd Holbrook are in the running, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Rapper Jamie Foxx is lined up to play the villain Electro. The Amazing Spider-Man 2, directed by Marc Webb, is expected to be underway early in 2013 and will be released May 2, 2014. ~BJ Lasala

    Since when is Academy Award/golden globe winning Actor/Comedian and Grammy Award winning POP/R&B Singer Jamie Foxx been a rapper?

    I guess there was no other titles for BJ to use.

    Maybe check Wikipedia next time bud 🙂

    I’m brown and clean cut…. does that make me dark and edgy enough?

    zuh, you should try out! Break some of the comics stereotypes. Why is everyone white? Well, except the villian in this case. Sad.
    But I always wanted to see Electro and I hope Mysterio makes an appearance. Those were my fav from the cartoon!

    Please dont let it be Sam Claflin! He is already freaking Finnick in HG, I dont need him playing freaking Harry Osborn. Hey idea! Give the role to Dave Franco. Just because James Franco is too old to play a high schooler doesnt mean you cant have second-hand Franco! JK but still give it to someone who isn’t in another film franchise already

    LOL Jamie Foxx is NOT a rapper. Comedian/ actor/ singer. And he is a singer last so calling an Oscar-winning actor “rapper, Jamie Foxx…” check yourself

    Maybe the writer was thinking christmas gift wrapper? I think Jamie Foxx is wrong for the movie. I haven’t liked him in anything since Living Colour.
