A few days ago we learned that Brady Corbet (Melancholia), Dane DeHaan (Chronicle), and Alden Ehrenreich (Beautiful Creatures) were up for the part of Harry Osborn in Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Today we've learned four more young actors have been added to the list.
According to THR the the other four actors include Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Snow White and the Huntsman), Eddie Redmayne, (My Week With Marilyn and Les Miserables), Douglas Booth, (LOL and Noah) and Boyd Holbrook (The Big C, Hatfields & McCoys, and The Host).
At first we heard that the studio was looking for someone dark and edgy, but now apparently the producers and filmmakers are now looking actors with athleticism and good looks. Apparently they can't make up their minds. Who ever is cast in the movie will join Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, and maybe Jamie Foxx. Out of these choices I'd still like to Dehaan cast in the role. My second choice would be Redmayne.
James Franco played Harry Osborn in Sam Raimi's films, and he was great. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to be released on May 2nd, 2014. Now that the choice of actors has grown, who would you like to see play the character now?
