Top of the Spidey list

There is word floating around that since Sony has re-purchased the rights to the Spiderman films, they have been thinking about who should carry on the Spiderman legacy (as it is unlikely that Tobey will be back). Latino Review reports on who the studio might be looking at to replace Tobey Maguire as Spidey ... and it's definitely NOT who everyone thought it could've been (does that sentence make sense?).

They're saying Patrick Fugit, who first broke out as little William Miller in Almost Famous (and recently starred in the indie hit Wristcutters), is at the top of the "potential Spidey list," alongside Michael Angarano (who just starred in The Forbidden Kingdom). Coincidentally (or not), Angarano played the younger version of William Miller in Almost Famous before they leaped ahead a few years and Fugit took over.

I'm not sure what I agree with (although Patrick Fugit looks strangely similar to Tobey Macquire and delivered a great performance in Almost Famous). But one thing is for sure, if this list exists - things are not looking good for the former Spidey cast.
