It’s about time we heard some Spider-Man news! Lucky for us, there is good news: Denise Leary is joining the Spider-Man cast as George Stacy, father of one of Peter Parker’s love interest, Gwen Stacy.
Leary started his career in stand up comedy and slowly moved into television and movies. He has appeared in over 40 movies, including Demolition Man, Wag the Dog and Operation Dumbo Drop. But he was perhaps most memorable as the voice of Diego from Ice Age.
Pairing comedic talent with macho good looks, Leary succeeded in a variety of roles. Currently he is the star of HBO’s “Rescue Me”.
Congrats to Leary on his acceptance to join the Spider-Man cast! “Spider Man 4” is scheduled to hit theaters in July of 2012. We can’t wait to see Leary’s performance!
