Dane DeHaan has landed the role of a lifetime.
The actor (Chronicle, In Treatment) will portray Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, director Marc Webb confirmed today on Twitter.
This role, of course, was made famous by James Franco in the original, Tobey Maguire-anchored franchise.
DeHaan reportedly beat out such actors as Brady Corbet, Alden Ehrenreich, Sam Claflin, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth and Boyd Holbrook for the role.
He will join a returning Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in the sequel, which hits theaters on May 2, 2013.
