yeah i was just about to post this,i haven't heard of him even if he has won a BAFTA...maybe that will be good that it is a totally unknown

he was born in the USA and raised in England

Quote
The new Spider-Man film is to be directed by Marc Webb, who won praise for last year's low-budget hit romance 500 Days Of Summer.

"Though his name may be new to many, those who know this young actor's work understand his extraordinary talents," Webb said of Garfield.

"He has a rare combination of intelligence, wit, and humanity. Mark my words, you will love Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker."

well we'll see

Here's a fairly awesome alternate audition tape:

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/45932


As an actor, the guy doesn't seem to have a lot of range (he has the same look on his face through the whole fight), but the fact that he went to this length for the audition is pretty cool.

Cool fight scene, though you're absolutely right about his range.  I can almost hear the audition in my head:

Casting Director: "Josh, let's see your regular look...ok good.  Now, let's see your angry look...no, I said angry."
Josh: "This is my angry look"
CD: "Ok, let's try sad...let's try something different.  Think of dying kittens and stuff..."
J:  "I'm sad"
CD:  "Really?  You look the same."
J:  "This is my sad face."
CD: "NEXT!"

Going largely non-American for Batman (director Chris Nolan, actors Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Heath Ledger, Cilian Murphy, much of the crew) worked for an American comic book icon there, so perhaps going a little British will work for Spidey as long as his accent is consistent.

For some reason, British, Australian, Irish etc. actors almost never seem to have trouble adopting flat U.S. accents, but a lot of U.S. actors just can't do a British or other foreign accent consistently.

Me, I still wanted Raimi and co. to get one more shot, just to wash the bad taste of Spider-Man 3 out of everyone's mouth. The more I read about things, more it seems the success of Spideys 1 and 2 didn't give Raimi the kind of "hands off" creative freedom that Nolan enjoyed on his Batman films to date.

What? No breathless hyperventilation about Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben? I thought a re-boot would cast Charlie Sheen as a hard-drinking, womanizing Uncle Ben. Now that would be different.  icon_razz

'Spider-Man' reboot taps Martin Sheen to play Peter Parker's Uncle Ben
http://hollywoodinsider.ew.com/2010/11/04/spider-man-reboot-taps-martin-sheen-to-play-peter-parkers-uncle-ben/
Although I enjoy keeping tabs on this stuff, the fan-rage over casting is ridiculous. Could you imagine if the Internet had been around in the 1970s how fans would have raged about a then-scrawny nobody (Christopher Reeve) as Superman in 1978? Or maybe some nobody California pretty boy (Mark Hamill) for Star Wars' lead?

In the same way, maybe I should stop bashing the re-boot. I'm mortified by the idea on paper, but maybe I should stop being so close-minded about it.

I'm still on record as believing Raimi deserved to do at least one more movie, preferably with little/no studio interference (supposedly he was planning movies 4 and 5 with the same cast when the studio and he parted ways). Maybe Sony just didn't trust him anymore. Maybe they thought he was going to turn Spider-Man 4 into an Evil Dead sequel.  icon_razz

Here's my guess: The studio was probably upset by how he mismanaged Venom and wanted him to use him again. Raimi said no. The studio said yes. The toxic buzz after Spiderman 3 meant that Raimi no longer had a whole ton of influence, and the studio figured that the Spiderman name is what people want.

It still angries up my blood, though. Cliff Robertson and Rosemary Harris were perfectly cast.

To me a re-boot is something you do when the first attempt (see Ang Lee's The Hulk) didn't work. If they wanted to put a new director and cast in, I can maybe understand even if I don't agree, but I still don't see the need to do yet another Spidey origin story.

I never understood why Spider-man 2's box office and critical success didn't give Raimi more autonomy instead of apparently less at Sony. After The Dark Knight's success, nobody at Warner is telling Chris Nolan what to do and who he should have in his next Batman film.

I saw Spider-man 3 again on TV recently and it still seemed like a mess. And it was so dark in tone and even in its look, it seemed more like what you'd expect in the middle part of a trilogy. And what the hell is "That '70s Guy" doing in it as a villain? When Topher Grace is supposed to sound scary as Venom's alter ego (or whatever you'd call Brock), I started laughing.  icon_razz And I didn't find him any more interesting as Peter Parker's journalist competitor early on.

As for Denis Leary as Captain Stacy, I dunno -- this is a PG-13 movie, right? Denis is a lot of fun, but a grey-haired police captain with a teen-age daughter isn't something I see him as.

Then again, a lot of casting for comic book films makes no sense at all until you see the finished product.

You'd think a modern Spidey could invent a costume from a material that doesn't constantly rip and disintegrate after every fight, except that it seems to be a requirement in nearly every comic book film that the mask or helmet gets conveniently torn off and/or ripped up in the climactic battle because woe be us if we couldn't admire the actor's dashing visage.   Roll Eyes

I think my fundamental problem with all this is the original Spider-Man came out in 2002 (!). Spider-Man 3 came out 4 years ago, and by most accounts, it was Sony's own meddling that helped bork it up. We need a re-boot this soon? I have nothing against the cast really, I've just lost faith in Sony's ability to handle the franchise with anything resembling care. Good grief.

imho, if they were serious about re-booting I'd respect Raimi's work enough to just let the franchise sit and breathe for a few years and then find another director with real passion for it. Obviously the train's going down the tracks anyway.
