4. Jamie Foxx confirmed for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’
Jamie Foxx is about to light up Spider-Man’s world! ETOnline.com reports that the "Unpredictable" singer has been confirmed to play Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man.
Jamie had been campaigning for the part for at least a few weeks, even going so far as to dress up as Electro for Halloween.
Well it seems that his tactic paid off. "Electro is a great character," Jamie told "Entertainment Tonight" anchor Nancy O’Dell. "I met with the director, Mark Webb, I met with Andrew Garfield, and we talked."
He added, "I think Electro will be an exciting character to play because he’s a … genius electrician-type person, and he gets the short end of the stick from the whole world, and the next thing you know, he turns it on."
