James Cromwell Joins Spider-Man 3

James CromwellActor James Cromwell has joined the cast of Spider-Man 3. Cromwell is set to play Captain Stacy, who is Gwen Stacy’s police office father (at least in the comics). As we mentioned a couple of weeks ago the role of Gwen Stacy has been filled with “The Village” star Bryce Dallas Howard.

I know this sounds lame, but I’ve been a big James Cromwell fan ever since I saw him in the original Babe back in 1995… and lets not forget all his stellar work in the Star Trek and Revenge of the Nerds franchises (hehe). But seriously, I find him to be a terrific actor who brings a real separate dimension with him to just about any project he’s attached to. The good folks over at CHUD give us the following:

Last week Rich Johnston’s semi-reliable comics gossip column Lying in the Gutters revealed that Theresa Russell was playing the Black Cat in the movie, before changing his tune to say that she is playing the mother of the Black Cat. Somehow this led to speculation that Gwen Stacy, being played by Bryce Dallas Howard, would be the Cat. It seems unlikely, but possible, I guess – Russell could be Captain Stacy’s ex, now getting it on with Sandman. It sounds overly complicated.

Yikes! Well, I’m not going to worry at the moment about what Captain Stacy will be doing in Spider-Man 3… it’s just nice to see Cromwell in the film.
