Jamie Foxx cast as Electro in Amazing Spider-Man sequel

Columns, Movies, Sci-Fi & Fantasy

ET reports that Jamie Foxx has confirmed his role as the villain Electro in the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man. The former In Living Color comedian and Oscar winner for Ray calls it a great part:

“I think Electro will be an exciting character to play because he’s a … genius electrician-type person, and he gets the short end of the stick from the whole world, and the next thing you know he turns it on.”

Yesterday Dane DeHaan was cast as Harry Osborn.
