This just came in on a news alert for me, I’ll keep you updated on more info when I get it so that I can confirm or rumor it.
Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield has been cast in Martin Scorsese’s latest film Silence. The actor will take a role in the director’s adaptation of the Shusaku Endo novel, which he has been trying to bring to the big screen for decades. Variety reports that Scorsese has finally received the necessary financing from Emmett/Furla Films. The story centres on two 17th-century Jesuit priests who travel to Japan to investigate claims of religious persecution. Garfield will play the part of the Portuguese Jesuit priest Father Rodrigues, a role which formerly had been attached to Daniel Day-Lewis, Benicio Del Toro, and Gael Garcia Bernal in former plans for the project.f
I’ve added images of Andrew from his two events this month to the gallery: the opening night of the US premiere of “BULL at Brits” off Broadway and a event today that he attended, the 16th annual EIF Revlon Run Walk for Women. I’m hoping that more photos of today’s events surface so stay tuned!

Who better to support same-sex marriage than Spider-Man himself?
Actor Andrew Garfield, who starred in last year’s “The Amazing Spider-Man,” tells The Times of London he has no qualms about backing same-sex couples’ right to tie the knot.
“Of course I’m in favor of marriage equality. Same-sex couples should have the same rights as anybody else,” Garfield told the publication. “There is no argument against equality.”
He then noted, “How can anyone argue against compassion and understanding?”
The 29-year-old star, who will also be seen in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ next summer, apparently made the comments at the London revival of “Beautiful Thing.” Prior to his superhero phase, Garfield starred in a 2006 production of the gay-themed play.
Thanks to Lindsey from Rachel McAdams Online, I’ve added a small one page article on Andrew discussing his work with the WWO foundation.

When we caught up with The Amazing Spider-Man’s Andrew Garfield last night at the Worldwide Orphans 15th Anniversary Benefit Gala in NYC, he certainly had a lot to say about the highly anticipated sequel. Reuniting Garfield with director Marc Webb and costar Emma Stone, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters in 3D on May 2, 2014, and Garfield is excited to explore playing Peter Parker even further.
“It is a responsibility to play that role. And I don’t take it lightly,” Garfield tells Hollywood.com. “I think there’s so much to explore within that mythology and within the tension between living a double life, struggling with being good, struggling with choosing good behavior over bad behavior with the pressures of a city on your shoulders. I think it’s a microcosm of being a father. I’m sure that fathers feel the same pressure that Spider-Man feels and to be a hero to their kids. It’s all linked.”
Garfield was less forthcoming about Peter’s future with Stone’s Gwen Stacey. “That’s up to the writers,” Garfield tells Hollywood.com. “I’m not going to give you the answer you’re looking for. It’s a bold question… In terms of exploring Peter, I want to keep exploring that theme of being fatherless, being motherless, and searching for purpose… That character is a classic orphan. He’s one of the most famous fictional orphans.”
When we see Spider-Man swing back onto the big screen, expect to see a newly redesigned spidey-suit. This was not merely for appearance purposes, however. “Well the suit is undergoing a redesign because I couldn’t urinate in it last time,” Garfield said. “So I’m less nervous because that’s going to be nice.” And as for the beard Garfield has been sporting as of late, don’t assume that we’re going to see a scruffy Peter Parker. “I just like having a beard,” Garfield said. “I never thought I’d be able to grow a beard when I was a kid. Here we are. This is 29 years in the making and I’m proud. I’m just proud to have facial hair. I never thought it would happen.”
You better be clean-shaven when filming commences, Garfield. We don’t think that spidey-mask will fit over your scruff.
