Chris Cooper On The "Very Strange" Introduction Of Norman Osborn In TASM 2
I think at this stage it's pretty obvious to everyone that it'll be the younger Osborn, Harry (Dane DeHann), that will suit up as the villainous Green Goblin in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and not his father Norman - but that doesn't mean there won't be any surprises in store when it comes to that character. In an interview with Moviefone, Oscar winner Chris Cooper remains as tight lipped as ever on specific details, but he does drop a couple of intriguing (and cryptic) hints about what we can expect to see from Norman in the future. Here's their exchange in full.
While talking to Moviefone about his role in the critically acclaimed August: Osage County, Cooper shares a few interesting tidbits on his take on Norman Osborn in Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man sequel. Click on to find out what he had to say.
Was it a bit of a relief to shift gears and then do "Amazing Spider-Man 2"? Something a little lighter and more fun?
Um, well, when you see [laughs], when you see "Spider-Man 2," you'll realize this is the introduction to Norman Osborn, and apparently it's going to lead to other things down the road. But an actor has to do these big tent pole productions something like once every five years. It just keeps the name alive, as some of these smaller films that may not make it around the world tend not to do.
Does your character embrace his full villainy, his full Green Goblin side in this sequel?
All I can is this is a very strange introduction for Norman Osborn. I just can't reveal why it's that way, but this is not the beginning of Norman. It is the introduction, but it's not the beginning, and I think that's as far as I can go.
So, can you reveal if you did any green screen?
I did not.
So, that definitely suggests that Cooper didn't suit up in some form in this movie (though you never know of course) but from the sounds of things he'll definitely be returning to menace Spidey in a future movie..as part of the Sinister Six perhaps? More at the link below.
