Denis Leary Joins 'Spider-Man’'Reboot

I don’t remember the last film in which comedian-actor Denis Leary played a father, except I do remember (fondly) Leary playing the stepdad in The Sandlot and how much fun it was to see him acting all serious and whatnot. We’re not sure how serious this role will be, but we do know that it’s probably the biggest live-action film Leary has ever appeared in. Yes, we’re talking about the Spider-Man reboot, which has apparently snagged Denis Leary and assigned him to play the father of Gwen Stacy, to be portrayed by Emma Stone in the movie, due out in 2012. Denis Leary

In the comics, George Stacy was a police captain who died during a battle between Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus. It was that battle that led Gwen, his daughter, to despise Spider-Man, which became problematic since she dated his alter-ego, Peter Parker. We’re not sure how they plan to use him in this film, and whether it will follow the comics’ storyline or play out completely differently.
One thing Leary brings to the film is some attitude. And considering Emma Stone has that whip-smart edginess about her, Leary seems like the perfect actor to play her father. Expect the man to steal more than few scenes assuming they use him properly.
Spider-Man hits theaters on July 3, 2012. Andrew Garfield, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen and Sally Field also star.
