Others can hash out those contradictions among themselves. I’d rather take a detour and talk about Jon Bernthal, who has a small but indelible part as the protagonists’ cool, overly tattooed history teacher. Over the last five or six years, Bernthal has been using guest appearances like this to carve out an intelligent, oddball career that is a pleasure to behold. I first noticed him when he appeared in The Pacific, the 2010 sister series to Band Of Brothers; in Polanski’s The Ghost Writer; and then as the horribly compromised ex-cop in The Walking Dead, in which he was underused and too soon dispatched. But he stole several moments in The Wolf Of Wall Street, including the movie’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it signature scene – “Sell me this pen!” – and distinguished himself from all the other sociopathic dead-end kids on Scorsese’s riotous trading floor.
He might have scored a big gig recently, landing the role of Spider-Man for Sony and (now) Marvel, but Tom Holland has time before he has to put on the suit again for his first solo outing as the web-crawler. He’s just landed a role in The Lost City Of Z alongside Robert Pattinson, Charlie Hunnam and Sienna Miller.
And he’ll be reporting for work soon, as director James Gray has already started cranking the cameras in Northern Ireland before heading to Colombia to get the rest of the film completed.
The Lost City Of Z is expected later next year. Before that, Holland will be seen in Ron Howard’s In The Heart Of The Sea (due December 26) and then Captain America: Civil War, arriving April 29.
Tom Holland will become the third actor to play Spider-Man on screen in 14 years when he picks up web-slinging duties next year for Marvel in Captain America: Civil War, and former Spidey star Andrew Garfield thinks he’s going to be just fine.
“Tom Holland is a really, really great actor,” Garfield said in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, citing Holland’s work in The Impossible as an example. “He’s this incredibly powerful, sensitive, wonderful young actor – and a dancer, so his body is the right [type].”
Jon Bernthal recently wrapped up a movie shoot and started another one immediately afterwards.
Essentially, the actor hasn’t slowed down since his character, Shane Walsh, got killed off the hit AMC series “The Walking Dead” in 2012.
Coming up for the Hollywood star are roles in the the thriller “Shot Collar” with Lake Bell; “The Accountant” opposite Ben Affleck and Anna Kendrick; and “Sicario,” alongside Emily Blunt (“she’s wonderful…and a bad-ass,” he says).
