I smell a Norman Osborn role here. He does have that goblinish look.
TheManwithaPlan - 1/9/2011, 11:28 AM
I agree with smgmayhem, deff got that Norman look.
InSpace - 1/9/2011, 11:28 AM
Maybe the burglar that kills Uncle Ben ?!?
Necrophobos - 1/9/2011, 11:30 AM
I can't picture anybody else as Norman besides William Dafoe. Maybe he could play Venom's dad?
MovieTheaterLad - 1/9/2011, 11:46 AM
He looks so much like Reed Richards, it's frightening.
Betty - 1/9/2011, 12:11 PM
Yeah he looks Gobby-ish.

SuperCalico-- Soul Man is my joint! Ahhh the 80s
Jables - 1/9/2011, 12:12 PM
I can see him as Norman Osborn. lets get the ball rolling with the "death of gwen stacy" story already!
PaulRom - 1/9/2011, 12:13 PM
I agree...he looks like he could play Norman Osborn well.
AlexDeLarge87 - 1/9/2011, 12:15 PM
I smell Norman Osborn too. But i would prefer Bryan Cranston as Ozzy. Howell would be cool Dr. Conners too or the burglar who kills uncle ben or maybe even J. Jonah Jameson.
LEEE777 - 1/9/2011, 12:15 PM
Well no one should replace WILLEM DAFOE... don't even try but when they do (lol)

It shouldn't f'ing HOWELL it should be =

Exiles @ Yeah man, he better not F it up lol, we want awesome!
patriautism - 1/9/2011, 12:20 PM

LEEE777 - 1/9/2011, 12:21 PM

The way Marvel did it for INCREDIBLE HULK was perfect!

asavagevandal - 1/9/2011, 12:34 PM
slap a goatee on him and it's KRAVEN :)
Ranger14 - 1/9/2011, 12:36 PM
Wow...he has certainly aged beyond his years. Not sure how he would fit in, but it must not be too big of a part, considering what little he has done of significance in years.
RorMachine - 1/9/2011, 12:36 PM
Great find Devil. Howell was great in The Hitcher. That's pretty much all I've seen him in but nice that he's making a comeback.
BillyBlack - 1/9/2011, 12:39 PM
Stay gold pony boy!

30 comments? I'm actually shocked it took this long.
Dusk - 1/9/2011, 12:47 PM
Slap a mustache on the guy and put him behind a desk as J. Jonah Jameson?
CBMDeadpool - 1/9/2011, 12:59 PM
He would be a good Norman Osbourne
Misterfan - 1/9/2011, 1:07 PM
same thing i see Twilight, triple J.
TheThing - 1/9/2011, 1:08 PM
How about Dr.Curtis Conners.
ViperXX79 - 1/9/2011, 1:09 PM
He was such a badass in Red Dawn.
Dusk - 1/9/2011, 1:27 PM
@misterfan- I think he would look just like JJJ!
UnfriendlySpidey - 1/9/2011, 1:31 PM
he was great as the Reaper in Criminal Minds...wonder who he'll play.. nice find Devil!
SFCamerica - 1/9/2011, 1:33 PM
It doesn't matter who all joins this crap! Andrew Garfield is the worst thing to CBM's since Brett Ratner! Mark my words, this movie will be mediocre at best and won't nearly live up to the standard set by the first 2 Spiderman films.
pollix22 - 1/9/2011, 1:35 PM
He's not a good actor, and also a jerk in real life. Oh well.
TheThing - 1/9/2011, 1:42 PM
@SF I kind of agree, I think Garfied is a pussy. This movie will probably tank.
tazmaniak - 1/9/2011, 1:43 PM
@BIGBMH, Campbell Scott is Richard Parker and Julianne Nicholson is Mary Parker.
AlexDeLarge87 - 1/9/2011, 1:47 PM
Howell was great in Criminal Minds too!
TheGambitFreak - 1/9/2011, 2:11 PM
WOW, it's been awhile since his days as Pony Boy in the outsiders and E.T. huh?! lol
The Outsiders - 999
Stay Golden Pony Boy lol!

thedill - 1/9/2011, 2:11 PM
I can almost guarantee that his role will be very minor. Probably some cop who works under Capt. Stacy and has one scene, or something like that. It kind of reminds me of when Bonnie Somerville was cast in Spider-Man 2. Everyone was sure she was going to play Gwen Stacy, but in actuality, she played a woman in an office building that screams.
marvel72 - 1/9/2011, 2:21 PM
he could be norman osborn,but i would rather they cast someone better.
Comedian03 - 1/9/2011, 2:28 PM
Billyjack you beat me to it too, the only reason I was reading the comments was to see if anyone said that yet lol
thedill - 1/9/2011, 2:32 PM
I wouldn't call a production deal with The Asylum "clout." Sure, C. Thomas Howell worked on some good stuff decades ago. I guess a better example would be Anthony Michael Hall in "The Dark Knight." When they announced his casting, I remember a lot of people were talking about how he was going to play the Riddler or some other major character from the comics, and in reality he played a TV host in a of couple scenes.
vermillion - 1/9/2011, 2:41 PM
First thing I thought when I saw his picture was Norman Osbourne.
thedill - 1/9/2011, 2:49 PM

The Asylum is the production company behind such masterpieces as "Snakes on a Train," "Transmorphers," "AVH: Alien vs. Hunter," and "The Day the Earth Stopped." The company exclusively produces titles plagiarizing and capitalizing on productions by major studios. C. Thomas Howell has starred and directed several of their shitty movies. It was meant as a completely just insult towards his work, but you obviously missed that. You're completely missing my point. And I'm also starting to think you're a charter member of the C. Thomas Howell Fan Club.
