Tom Holland more than likely has a career that will see him play a wide range of characters covering most genres. Though the actor says he would be on board to star as Peter Parker in films numbering in double digits.
Holland recently spoke with USAToday and talked about how wonderful it is playing the teenaged web-slinger. He’s also curious as to how his new film, Cherry, will affect future opportunities. You can check it out below
“I’m very lucky that I look young and I can continue to play this 17-year-old web-slinger and I will do that for as long as they will have me. If they want me to make 10 Spider-Man movies, you better believe I will be there, but Cherry was our big leap. I’m really interested to see the types of doors that it opens and the doors that it closes.”
While it’s a much more glamorous form of typecasting, actors still try to avoid having their careers defined by a single character. And I don’t mean like Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter. I would classify that as being more the performance in which the actor is defined, as opposed to the character.
There’s certainly nothing wrong with being (the definitive) Spider-Man. Especially when considering you’re part of the shining example of a cinematic shared universe. Holland will also appear as Nathan Drake in Uncharted. Which will be a prequel to the popular video game series franchise of the same name.
One role I’d love to see Tom Holland in is a Back to the Future remake (I know, I know). Ever since his suggested casting ss Marty McFly, I just can’t get the thought that he would be perfect for the part out of my head.
