Meet the New Spiderman, Andrew Garfield

26-year-old Andrew Garfield bags the highly-coveted lead role as Peter Parker in the reboot of Spiderman.

Andrew Russell Garfield, born August 20, 1983, is perhaps known for his roles in the 2007 films Lions for Lambs and Boy A, as well as 2009’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

Film producer Avi Arad said that Garfield is “the perfect choice” to play “a smart, sensitive, and cool new Peter Parker who can inspire us and make us laugh, cry, and cheer”.

Garfield bested Josh Hutcherson, Logan Lerman, Aaron Johnson and Jamie Bell for the role. He will begin preparing for the role immediately and shooting is expected to start later this year for summer of 2011 release.
