Chris Cooper to Play Norman Osborn in Amazing Spider-Man 2

William Goodman


The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s villain roster is going to be jammed packed. In addition to Jamie Foxx and Paul Giamatti, The Hollywood Reporter just announced that actor Chris Cooper will be joining the cast as Norman Osborn.

We already knew that Dane DeHaan will be playing Harry, but it’s good to know that dear-ole-daddy will be making an appearance as well. It’ll be interesting to see if the Green Goblin actually shows up in the sequel, but Cooper is one of my favorite character actors and I’m happy to see him join this outstanding cast.

Here’s the official description for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, directed by Marc Webb, starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, Sally Field, Dale DeHaan, Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti and now, Chris Cooper. The film is set to be released on May 2, 2014:

In “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy — between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away — but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
