Chris Cooper, ladies and gentlemen.

Wow, two Amazing Spider-Man 2 posts in two days. It’s like I have a thing for Marvel characters or something… Weird.

Anyway, Chris Cooper has reportedly been signed to play Norman Osborn in Marc Webb’s sequel, best known for his roles in American Beauty, The Bourne Identity and Adaptation, apparently. That’s Osborn, not the Green Goblin. I mean, we already have Jamie Foxx as Electro and Paul Giamatti as the Rhino (um, what?), so we’re not gonna have a third villain, are we? You never can tell with these kind of movies though. Honestly we’re more likely to see him as a sort of mentor to Peter Parker and head of Oscorp, before something bad happens at the end of the movie turning him into the Green Goblin and setting him up as the big bad for the inevitable Amazing Spider-Man 3 (aka The Web-Slinger Rises).

Did any that happen in the first one? I still haven’t seen it yet. Someone let me know when it pops up on Netflix. Thanks.
