Four More Actors Up for Harry Osborn Role in The Amazing Spider-Man Sequel

November 19, 2012


On the heels of last week's report that suggested three actors reading for the role of Harry Osborn in Marc Webb's upcoming sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man comes, also via The Hollywood Reporter, another four names said to be auditioning today. The new list includes Douglas Booth (Noah), Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman), Boyd Holbrook (The Host) and Eddie Redmayne (My Week with Marilyn).

The update seems to now contradict the trade's earlier notion that the role would have a "dark & edgy" bent to it and, instead, a charismatic and athletic Osborn is being sought.

Played by James Franco in Sam Raimi's original trilogy, Harry is the son of Spider-Man's arch-foe, Norman Osborn (aka the Green Goblin). In the comics, Harry assumes the Goblin mantle after his father's death.

Whoever is cast will join the returning Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone along with Shailene Woodley in the part of Mary Jane Watson.

The Amazing Spider-Man sequel hits theaters on May 2, 2014.
