As most of us know, The Amazing Spider-Man is due in theaters this July. Before the huge buzz kicks in, star Andrew Garfield is set to make his Broadway debut. Garfield will star alongside Phillip Seymour Hoffman in the revival of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman.
The actor is most definitely anticipating the huge buzz this movie will receive and he becoming a household name, but before then he is enjoying some down time. The calm before the storm seems pretty appropriate.
Former Peter Parker and star of the massive Spider-Man franchise, Tobey Maguire, spoke with Andrew about how to handle the craziness of quick success on his coming out party:
"There will be a certain stepping out, yes. I think right now all I’m trying to do is step in. Not in a shy way. Not in a defensive way. Not in a keep-away-from-me way. It’s just that I need to know myself so well if I’m going to be able to handle this."
Well, he definitely got a taste of success after The Social Network, but Spider-Man will bring him a whole different kind of attention. It's a good thing he has his starlet girlfriend, Emma Stone, to go along for the ride with him.
As for the play, it will be his first time on stage in six years. Although he is excited to be working with Hoffman, whom he says is his "favorite living actor," he admits to being a bit nervous.
"It was kind of, `I want to see that show,' so why not be as close to it as possible? A part of me wished it was a really small, out-of-town theater in a way. With the same cast and the same director, just in someone's living room."
Don't worry Spidey Eduardo Andrew, we think you will be great and are super excited about Death of a Salesman.
