Brit stars a shoe-in for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'?

Tuesday November 20, 2012

Sam Claflin, pictured, and Eddie Redmayne are reportedly being screen-tested for a role in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

The two British actors are going head-to-head for the role of Peter Parker's best friend Harry Osborn, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog.

Sam, star of Pirates Of The Caribbean and Snow White And The Huntsman, and Eddie, who will appear in Les Miserables later this year, are being considered for the part along with fellow British rising star Douglas Booth and American actor and model Boyd Holbrook.

It had previously been reported that Chronicle's Dane DeHaan and Beautiful Creatures' Alden Ehrenreich had been screen-tested, but it is now believed Sony has decided to take a different direction, steering firmly towards Brit talent.
