Sam Claflin or Eddie Redmayne could join Andrew Garflied in The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The casting for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 continues as four new actors have been pegged to compete for the part of Harry Osborne in the upcoming sequel. Last week four actors were on the short list and this week four new guys are in the lead, so really it could all change next week and it’s tough to keep up. Right now the four young thespians that could star opposite Andrew Garfield as his BFF Harry Osborne and son to the Green Goblin are: Sam Claflin (THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE), Eddie Redmayne (LES MISERABLES), Douglas Booth (LOL) and Boyd Holbrook (THE HOST). If I had to take a guess on which of these guys will win the part I would put my money on either Sam Claflin or Eddie Redmayne, just because they are the bigger names although the studio may want to go with someone a little more unknown so they can get started on production. Either way, this is all still in the rumor stage so stay tuned as to who will win the part.
Directed by Marc Webb, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 will star Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Sally Field, Jamie Foxx and Shailene Woodley. The sequel will be swinging into theaters on May 2, 2014. (THR)
