Red Is Blonde, Night Is . . . Still Night

  • by

I’m sure you already know this, but there has been some casting and plot news regarding the Spider-man reboot.

Emma Stone, who I don’t really know that much about, but looks attractive enough, has been cast for the movie. The funny thing is that although Ms. Stone is a red-head, she’s going to be playing Gwen Stacey. Guess they’ll get a blonde for MJ. Andrew Garfield is playing Peter Parker/Spider-man.

The villain of the piece is going to be the Lizard, and Rhys Ifans is set to play him.

I’ve got no comment on any of the casting, because I really don’t know any of their work. The Lizard can be a good villain, but it’s a bit of a shame that Dylan Baker couldn’t play Curt Connors in the new movie, just as he had in the last two, but I guess they want to cut all ties with the previous movies.

Oddly enough, Dylan Baker played Emma Stone’s dad in the cancelled TV series Drive, staring Nathan Fillion. Yes, all roads do lead back to Firefly. Live with it.
