Denis Leary Joins ‘Spider-Man’ Reboot

Wednesday, November 17 by

Actor, comedian, and all around angry man Denis Leary is joining the cast of Spider-Man. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Leary will play police captain George Stacy, a friend of Spidey who is also the father of the web-slinger’s love interest, Gwen Stacy. For those of you who don’t know, Gwen Stacy will be played by Emma Stone, who is ridiculously hot.

This marks Leary’s first onscreen performance in a theatrical film since 2002’s The Secret Lives of Dentists. But no matter what happens, I’ll always remember him as renegade Edgar Friendly from the 1993 classic, Demolition Man. I still don’t know how to use the three seashells.
