‘Rescue Me’ Star Denis Leary Joins Marc Webb’s ‘Spider-Man’ Reboot
  |  @   |  

Here we have yet another interesting casting announcement. According to reports, stand-up comedian and Rescue Me star Denis Leary is currently working out the dirty details to finalize his joining the cast of the upcoming Spider-Man reboot.

Leary will be playing Captain George Stacy, police officer and father to Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) love interest Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). At the moment, it’s still unclear how faithful to Marvel’s comic book storylines the movie will be, but it’s expected that Leary’s character will have his fair share of interactions with Spider-Man.

Leary joins the steadily growing cast that already includes Garfield (The Social Network, Never Let Me Go), Stone (Zombieland, Superbad), Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill, The Replacements), who was recently confirmed to be playing the villainous Lizard, and Martin Sheen (Apocalypse Now, The Departed) as Parker’s Uncle Ben. Sally Field has been said to be up for the role of Aunt May, but this is yet to be etched in stone.

The Spider-Man reboot comes from Sony and Columbia Pictures, and is directed by Marc Webb, who helmed the popular (500) Days of Summer. The script is written by James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, The Losers) along with Alvin Sargent, who helped to write Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3 from the previous franchise.
