Deadline reports that Easy A‘s Emma Stone, the approachably-hot, squinty stoner chick you thought you might have had a chance with, has been tapped to play Mary Jane Rottencrotch Watson in the 3D, Marc Webb-directed, Scarfield-starring Spider-Man reboot. That’s the great thing about actresses who play high-school girls, man. I get older, they keep playin’ the same age.
That leaves the four other actresses I mentioned yesterday (with the possibility they could widen the search [In other words, “there’s a chance everything I’m reporting is totally wrong so don’t blame me.” -Ed.]) for the role of Gwen Stacy. Those contenders are Glee‘s Dianna Agron, Mia Wasikowska, Georgina Haig and Dominique McElligott. Stacy, played in Spiderman 3 by Bryce Dallas Howard, is a plum part, because she is the first love interest of the high school-aged Peter Parker, played by Andrew Garfield.
Yes, yes, a plum part indeed. All the ladies in Hollywood are practically lining up to hear Scarfield’s futurist poetry and Vampire Weekend mix tapes. “Dude, this 3D is awesome! I thought his unresolved Daddy issues were gonna hit me right in the face!”
