Some big Spider-Man reboot news today, heavyweight actor and West Wing star Martin Sheen has been cast as Uncle Ben in Marc Webb's 3-D Spider-Man movie, joining The Social Network's Andrew Garfield and Easy A's Emma Stone. But that's not all!

George Stacy: Most people would be wrong. If I wanted the car thief off the street, he'd already be off the street.
Peter Parker: So, why wasn't he, then?
