Former MTV darling, unabashed Red Sox fan, and all-around asshole Denis Leary has signed on to 500 Days of Summer director Marc Webb’s Spider-man reboot, playing Police Captain George Stacy. Capt. Stacy is the father of Peter Parker’s love interest Gwen Stacy, who will be played by the insanely hot and awesome Emma Stone. The reboot, which is still untitled also stars The Social Network’s Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spidey, Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors/The Lizard, and Sally Field and Martin Sheen are rumored to be playing Aunt May and Uncle Ben, repectively. No word on whether the “Asshole” song will make it into the film at this time.


About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.
