Casting Call: Spider-Man, Kristen Wiig and Brooklyn Decker Making Hollywood Waves

Don’t miss the latest and greatest in casting news – tune in at the end of every week for the latest edition of Nicerazzi’s “Casting Call,” where we keep tabs on who will be playing who in Hollywood’s hottest new movies and tv shows. Without further ado, here’s our latest installment of juicy casting news…


“Chronicle” standout Dane Dehaan has been cast as Harry Osborn in “The Amazing Spider-Man” sequel. The role, made famous by Renaissance man James Franco, will now be portrayed by Dehaan, an up-and-comer known primarily for the breakout hit about teenage kids transformed into quasi- superheroes; he also continued a strong 2012 with minor roles in “Lincoln” and “Lawless.” Dehaan joins an already star-studded cast that includes Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, and Jamie Foxx.

The world has been buzzing with excitement over the return of Ron Burgundy and Veronica Corningstone in “Anchorman 2,” and now fans have even more reason to get pumped. “SNL” and “Bridesmaids” veteran Kristen Wiig  has been cast as a love-interest to Steve Carell’s character, Brick. Guess that means he’ll have to break things off with Lamp!

James Marsden is set to appear opposite Elizabeth Banks in “Walk of Shame.” Marsden will play Gordon, the love interest of Banks’ character. Meanwhile, the “40-Year-Old Virgin” blonde will play a news anchor facing the biggest interview of her life, only to find herself scrambling when she has a particularly big night on the town and wakes up the next morning at Gordon’s apartment with no wallet, ID, phone, or recollection of the night before. All she knows is that she has to get to the interview, and ASAP.


Kramer is back on TV! No, Michael Richards won’t actually be reprising his role as Seinfeld’s eccentric funnyman Kramer, but he is making a return to the boob tube. Richards has been cast alongside other significant sitcom superstars of days past, Kirstie Alley and Rhea Perlman, in TV Land’s new sitcom “Giant Baby.” Alley stars as Maddie, a Broadway star whose life is turned upside-down when her biological son suddenly enters her life. Richards will play Maddie’s trusty limo driver.

Supermodel-turned-actress Brooklyn Decker will have a short stint on Fox’s “New Girl.” The “Battleship” beauty will play a thirsty damsel-in-distress at the bar where Nick works. Nick (Jake Johnson), Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Schmidt (Max Greenfield) will, of course, engage in some friendly competition to try and win her affections.
