Andrew Garfield Is Going to Approach Spider-Man Like It’s a Short Film His Friend Is Directing

At the L.A. Times' Young Hollywood roundtable on Friday, the next Spider-Man maintained his image of adorable humbleness: "Ironically, I'm going to be the person in the audience [at the Spider-Man reboot] going, 'Shit! Shit! They cast this English fool?' I see [Spider-Man] like Hamlet or any Shakespeare play. Every actor is going to play King Lear differently because every actor is a different person. My approach isn't going to change. I'm just going to approach it like I'm doing a short film of Spider-Man that my friend is directing. It's kind of how I have to approach it or I'll lose my mind. I'll let you know next year [how that goes]." Sigh. [HR]
