Paul Giamatti to play The Amazing Spider-Man 2 villain?

Jan 29 2013, 2:13am CST | by

Paul Giamatti is negotiating a role in 'The Amazing Spider-Man' sequel.

The 45-year-old actor looks set to play The Rhino, a villainous thug from a Soviet country whose rhinoceros costume makes him unbeatable by giving him superstrength and superspeed.

The character - who also possesses a deadly horn - first appeared in the original comic books in 1966, but became an ally of Spider-Man in more recent tomes.

The Hollywood Reporter claims 'Chalet Girl' actress Felicity Jones is also in talks to play an unspecified part in Mark Webb's franchise reboot, which will see Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone reprise the leading roles.

'Cinderella Man' star Paul previously stated he was waiting in the wings for Sam Raimi to bring the Rhino into his original trilogy - which starred Tobey MaGuire, Kirsten Dunst and James Franco - and would jump at the chance to play his all-time comic book favourite.

He enthused: ''I thought Rhino was the greatest thing when I was a little kid. It was a guy who was basically in this rhinoceros outfit and I always thought, 'Why don't they have the Rhino in one of their movies', but maybe the Rhino wasn't that big of a deal for anybody but me. If they ever go with the Rhino I would be ready and waiting.''

Paul and Felicity are likely to be the last stars to join the impressive cast after it was announced Jamie Foxx will play villain Electro, Shailene Woodley will star as love interest Mary Jane Watson, and Dane DeHaan has been chosen as Peter Parker's best friend, Harry Osborn.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 DVD Review: Triple the Villainy

Aug 19 2014 5:20pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 sold itself on saying that our hero was facing his “greatest battle.” And that could not have been truer in that Andrew Garfield returns to the Spidey suit and fights off a trio of villains, The Green Goblin, Electro and The Rhino. As The Amazing Spider-Man 2 makes its way onto DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download, it’s an opportunity to witness some of those explosive action sequences once again, or if you missed it in theaters earlier this summer, it’s a c ...

Paul Giamatti Will Manage N.W.A in ‘Straight Outta Compton’

Aug 18 2014 1:30pm CDT | Source: slash film

The members of N.W.A — Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, DJ Yella and MC Ren — did things their way, but still needed some music industry connections to get their songs out to a big audience. The guy they turned to was Jerry Heller, who was best known for living on the opposite end of the pop spectrum, working with bands like Journey, ELO, and REO Speedwagon. The guy had connections and money; Heller and Eazy-E co-founded N.W.A’s label Ruthless Rec ...

Review: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

May 2 2014 3:24pm CDT | Source: Dark Horizons

Fledgling director Marc Webb displayed promise when the bumpy but enjoyable Amazing Spider-Man hit the big screen in 2012. It was rough around the edges - the tone was all over the place and the plot was always a smooth ride - but the enthusiasm and creativity was there, and talent and chemistry of Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone made the flaws forgivable. The conventional wisdom was that with the baggage of a superhero orig ...
