Sony is reportedly on a hunt for a young Peter Parker, and the son of The Lizard, Billy Connors, for the upcoming Spider-Man reboot. Make the jump for audition specs.
According to Moviehole, Sony launched auditions this morning in search of young actors for their Marc Webb-directed Spider-man reboot. The casting call not only calls for a young Peter Parker, but also a young Billy Conners, whose father Dr. Curt Conners, Welsh actor Rhys Ifans will be playing in the film. 

“Sony want[s] a dark-haired Caucasian boy to play actor Peter Parker at age 4 to 6 years old. Ideally, the boy should look a little like Andrew Garfield…In addition, the studio’s on the hunt for an actor to play Billy Connors, the son of Dr. Curt Connors… Applicants need be between 8 and 11 years old.” 

In the comics (via Comicvine), Billy Connors a young boy,is the son of Martha & Curt Connors. He once had cancer but is now a survivor. Billy alongside his mother must suffer the consequences of his father’s errors. Billy is put into a foster home after he is cured and retains no love for his father. When Curt becomes the Lizard in “SHED”, the Lizard wants to punish Connors and kills Billy who says just before he dies that he always new his dad would kill him. 

Anyhow, starring Andrew Garfield as Parker in High school, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, and of course Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors himself, Spider-Man 3D swings into theaters July 3, 2012. From today’s news, just knowing the film will be going in a different direction brings great feelings, what do you think?

Rhys Ifans IS The Lizard in Spider-Man Reboot

Posted on 06 October 2010 by Christian

Many believed it, but now The Wrap has learned that Rhys Ifans will be portraying none other than the Lizard in Sony’s Spider-man reboot. Check it Out!

Yesterday, Sony announced Welsh actor & musician Rhys Ifans as the latest star to join the upcoming 3D Spider-Man reboot. And while the role was undisclosed, The Wrap has learned that…

“Rhys Ifans will play Dr. Curt Connors, better known as The Lizard, in Marc Webb’s “Spider-Man” reboot”

While Phillip Seymour Hoffman was rumored for Eddie Brock, Venom, the Wraps’ source says that the character would not be appearing in this film, but could show up in sequels. As many know, Secretariat actor Dylan Baker portrayed Dr. Curt Connors in Sam Raimi’s trilogy, but evidently never got the opportunity to show the character’s true colors; or scales in this case.

Anyhow, Ifans starring alongside Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, Spidey returns to theaters July 3, 2012 in 3D.
