Denis Leary is talks to join the cast of Columbia’s new “Spider-Man” movie.
Leary has been linked to the part of Emma Stone’s Father. Stone is playing the love interest of Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and Leary will play police captain George Stacy, her father who frequently came into contact with the web-slinging superhero.
In the comics, Stacy died in an accident during a battle between Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus, an event that led Gwen Stacy to hate the hero.
Leary is currently working on the acclaimed drama Rescue Me.
