Quickie: Dane DeHaan cast as Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Dane DeHaan has been cast as Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  The character was famously played by James Franco in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy.  In the comics, Osborn is Peter Parker's best friend, and confidant.  But in various iterations, Osborn take's over his father's mantel as the Green Goblin, Spider-Man's arch enemy.

I loved DeHaan in Chronicle, and I think he'll do terrific in this.  He has a way of acting with his eyes that will keep the audience guessing where the character's true alliance lies.  Director, Marc Webb is piecing together a nice cast.  Andrew Garfield Spider-Man, Jamie Foxx is about to sign as the villain Electro, Emma Stone will be back as Gwen Stacey, and Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson.  DeHaan's casting is a very welcomed one!
