Giamatti wants to be in Amazing Spider-Man…as The Rhino?

Actor Paul Giamatti (Sideways, John Adams) is launching a last ditch effort campaign to be in the upcoming ‘Amazing Spider-Man’- as Aleksei Sytsevich., better known as The Rhino.
The Toronto Sun reports:

Giamatti made his case during an appearance on U.S. late-night show Conan on Tuesday, stating, “The Rhino was fantastic. He was, like, a Russian guy. He was real fast and he hit stuff real hard… He had, like, a rhino suit on, and his face was sticking out of the rhino suit and he had, like, a horn. I think I would be the best Rhino possible.”

Of course, the main foe in the upcoming film is The Lizard, and there were no plans for The Rhino to so much as cameo. The Rhino, also in my view (and I’ll catch hell for this) is nearly a re-interpetation of X-Men’s Juggernaut. As for Rhino in a live action setting, I actually picture a fella like Predators’ Oleg Taktarov myself- but in any case, at this stage it’s nothing more than wishful thinking. It’s possible someone might consider Rhino for the film after this one, but I have problems seeing Giamatti in the part. As much as I hate to say it, he could pass for a rebooted Doc Ock, but that’s a stretch. I also wouldn’t mind if Giamatti were just another teacher or instructor of Peter Parker. That would be fine too.

Would you like to see The Rhino one day?
