Chris Cooper is Norman Osborn in Amazing Spider-Man 2

Maniacal laugh. Maniacal laugh.



Source: 'Amazing Spider-Man 2': Chris Cooper to Play Green Goblin

THR is reporting that Chris Cooper (The Muppets) has signed on to play Norman Osborn in the Amazing Spider-Man 2. Cooper joins an already villain heavy cast with Jaime Foxx as Electro and Paul Giamatti as the Rhino. So it's safe to assume that Cooper won't be going all Green Goblin until the very end of the movie or if there is a third movie.

 

Amazing Spider-Man 2 will hit theaters in May 2, 2014

Let's see if Mr. Cooper can fill Willem Dafoe's shoes.

I don't think that there's any question. Dafoe's Osborn was silly and hammy.

Nope. Dafoe did a good job portraying Osborn. The only thing that sucked was that crappy costume that made him look like a 50's monster movie reject.

Exactly. The same thing could be said about the Jack Nicholson Joker who was also campy. However both actors did a good job with the characters they played.

Chris Cooper is pretty below average looking. I probably wouldn't do him.

nobody outcrazies Dafoe, but this is Christmas

In my mind I imagine Cooper doing some reenactment of the crazy goddamn Marine from American Beauty, except this time coming on to Andrew Garfield. It...wouldn't be too off-course for Norman...

Precisely. It's funny how god awful all the designs of most of the movie Spiderman villains are ironically( GG, Venom, New Goblin, Lizard).
