Andrew Garfield to Play Peter Parker in Spider-Man Reboot

Actor Andrew Garfield, who is British, and 26, will play Peter Parker in director Marc Webb's "reboot" of the Spider-man franchise, ending comedian Donald Glover's dreams of playing the part. Want to see him act?

Here's a montage of Garfield in various movies. If you recognize him, good for you, because he's only been in flops—Lions for Lambs and The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus.

He was also in the British crime miniseries Red Riding, which was only okay, but seems to have fooled American critics because it was made in England. He'll play Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin in the upcoming Facebook movie The Social Network.

He seems like a nice-enough guy, which is too bad, because the new Spider-Man is almost definitely going to suck.
