Posted on July 3, 2010 at 8:21 am

British actor Andrew Garfield has been cast as Peter Parker for the next Spider-Man movie. He is an exceptionally talented young actor with an already-impressive body of work is just right for portraying this especially soulful and angsty super-hero. Now, who should play Mary Jane?

Warning: brief very strong language in this clip

We will next be seeing Garfield in “Never Let Me Go,” with Kiera Knightly and Carey Mulligan in the story of students at a mysterious school, based on a book by Kazuo Ishiguro, the author of “The Remains of the Day.”

In Studio Tonight with BDK

Posted on July 2, 2010 at 2:00 pm

Most Friday evenings I call in to the Kevin and Josh Movie Show here in DC to chat for a few minutes about the week in movies. Josh is away this week, so I get to fill in for the whole show, in studio with my friend Kevin “BDK” McCarthy. Tune in to 106.7 HD2 and hear us talk to “The Last Airbender” director M. Night Shymalan and stars Dev Patel (“Slumdog Millionaire”), Jackson Rathbone (Jasper from “Twilight” and Sokka in “Airbender”) and Nicola Peltz, who plays Sokka’s sister. For those outside the area, I’ll be posting a link to the podcast this weekend.
