SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME Taps CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM Star J.B. Smoove For A Key Lead Role

With filming on Spider-Man: Far From Home already underway, a new report has now confirmed that Curb Your Enthusiasm and Uncle Drew star J.B. Smoove has joined the cast of the upcoming Marvel sequel.

Deadline is reporting that J.B. Smoove has joined the cast of Marvel's Spider-Man: Far From Home. Further details on his role were unavailable, but it is being described as one of the ensemble film's lead roles.

Smoove joins a cast headlined by Tom Holland, who will return for his fifth appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Academy Award-winner Marisa Tomei (Aunt May), Zendaya (Michelle Jones), Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds), and Academy Award-nominee Michael Keaton (Vulture) will also reprise their roles from the previous installment while Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal joins the MCU as the popular Spidey villain Mysterio.

Jon Watts is directing with a script from Homecoming scribes Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers.

Smoove is probably best known for his hysterical role as Leon Black on the critically-acclaimed HBO comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm. His more recent credits include, but are not limited to, New Girl, Fresh Off the Boat, The Millers, Top Five, Hall Pass, Mr. Deeds, and Date Night. He can also currently be seen on the big-screen in the Kyrie Irving-led basketball comedy Uncle Drew.
