TED RAIMI TALKS SPIDER-MAN SEQUEL
Ted Raimi will be returning as Hoffman in the Spider-Man sequel, the actor said last weekend at Mid-Ohio-Con.
Raimi, the brother of Spider-Man and sequel director Sam Raimi, in Spider-Man played a reporter at the Daily Bugle, a character created for the movie franchise.
"Spider-Man 2 has begun shooting already, and we don't even have a script," Raimi said, laughing. "That's very typical Hollywood. 'Let's shoot it!' 'What are we shooting?' 'I don't know, roll cameras! Get Tobey Maguire in here, where is he?'"
Raimi said there might be more of Hoffman in the sequel than the original.
"I have more scenes with J.K. Simmons, who is J. Jonah Jameson," Raimi said. "Yeah, there's a bunch more scenes. We've done some preliminary rehearsal, even if we don't have a script. He's a good guy to clown around with. He is J. Jonah Jameson."
One of the scenes that didn't make Spider-Man's final cut involved a tongue-twisting dialogue between Jameson and Hoffman about "Peter Parker's pants."
"It was a different ending that didn't fit," Raimi said.
Raimi said he currently prefers movie roles over TV roles
"Doing TV straight for 10 years, it's cool, but it's a little bit of a grind," Raimi said. "You get confused after two or three years. It's like, 'Didn't I do this scene like two or three times before?'
"Right now, movies is sort of the way to go. Movies are fun to do."
