British Tabloid: Zac Efron is the New Spidey

If British tabloid OK! is to be believed (British tabloid OK! is not to be believed), Zac Efron has been hand-picked by Tobey Maguire to play the webbed one in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot. This would make sense for Efron, who is hoping to make a serious turn, and for Sony, which could tap into Efron's legions of money-spending fans. In fact, there's just one group it wouldn't make sense for—those who actually like Spider-Man. [OK!]
