Two big franchises are looking to cast significant supporting roles got the next films in their respective series.

First up, The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Director Marc Webb is looking to cast the new Harry Osborne. Originally the part called for a muscular jock type of guy, but now they’re looking for someone a little more “dark and edgy”.

The names mentioned so far are Melancholia‘s Brady Corbet

Chronicle‘s Dane DeHaan

and Alden Ehrenreich


Who do you think can replace James Franco? I always preferred Franco’s performance as Osbourne to Maquire’s as Peter Parker. I think Franco’s a more natural actor and as a character Harry had more time to build up to his ultimate conclusion.

Thanks to Lr reader Dan Cordwell for head on this, and for the pics.

Next up is Transformers 4.

Michael Bay has already cast Mark Wahlberg as his male lead, »
