See Josh Hutcherson's Spider-Man Audition Tape!

by at . Comments

One of the endlessly fascinating things about Hollywood is the many different actor options a filmmaker has at his or her disposal. As such, it's always fun to wonder what a particular film would have been like had the casting choices been different, like the long-buried Eric Stoltz footage from Back to the Future.

Marc Webb's Spider-Man reboot is destined to be another such case. After it was announced that The Social Network star Andrew Garfield would fill Tobey Maguire's shoes as the new Peter Parker, many rejoiced and others, I'm sure, were disappointed. But none of them were as disappointed as Josh Hutcherson.

Hutcherson, whose credits include Journey to the Center of the Earth, The Kids are All Right and the forthcoming Red Dawn remake, recorded a stellar audition tape to prove that he could handle the physical requirements of the web slinger, while successfully playing a high school nerd outcast. The audition tape, which features a surprisingly well-choreographed fight sequence involving gravity-defying acrobatics complete with a Danny Elfman score, has been leaked online.

See what you missed below, and stay tuned to see what Andrew Garfield does with the role come July 2012!

The Amazing Spider-Man Quotes

Peter? I know things have been difficult lately and I'm sorry about that. I think I know what you're feeling. Ever since you were a little boy, you've been living with so many unresolved things. Well, take it from an old man. Those things send us down a road... they make us who we are. And if anyone's destined for greatness, it's you, son. You owe the world your gifts. You just have to figure out how to use them and know that wherever they take you, we'll always be here. So, come on home, Peter. You're my hero... and I love you!

Ben Parker

Miss Ritter: Mr. Parker! Tardy again?
Peter Parker: Sorry Miss Ritter! It won't happen again, I promise.
Miss Ritter: Don't make promises you can't keep.
Peter Parker: Yeah but those are the best kind.
