Peter Parker’s best pal, played by James Franco in the three Sam Raimi “Spider-Man” movies, is about to make his return to the big screen, and three actors have found their names linked to the character, according to Heat Vision: “Chronicle” star Dane DeHaan, “Melancholia” actor Brady Corbet and Alden Ehrenreich of the upcoming “Beautiful Creatures” adaptation.
DeHaan already played good guy-gone-psycho in “Chronicle,” so we know he has the juice to bring that aspect of Harry to life. Corbet and Ehrenreich are lesser known quantities, though the latter of those two names previously was in contention for the Parker role before it went to Andrew Garfield; clearly, he’s stayed on Marc Webb’s radar.
Heat Vision is quick to point out that there are other actors who might be vying for the Harry Osborn role, so we’re not necessarily looking at the finalists here. Still, they’re new names to add to the rumor pile. What do you think of the contenders? And who should play Harry’s psycho father, Stormin’ Norman?
