Meet Broadway's Spiderman

Update: Here's a video straight from Reeve, the next Spiderman, himself!

I'm sure you've heard by now, but the producing team of Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark has announced their Peter Parker.

His name is Reeve Carney, he's gorgeous, he has an amazing voice and I'm certain he will rock your faces off with his performance.

Here's the official photo from the press release, along with a bit about Reeve

Reeve is the lead singer of CARNEY, the hot up and coming rock band whose newest single “Love Me Chase Me” was just released. The band’s first full length album, entitled Mr. Green, will be released in early 2010 on Interscope Records. Reeve’s acting credits include Julie Taymor’s upcoming film version of The Tempest and the film version of the acclaimed novel Snow Falling on Cedars.

Julie Taymor continued, “Having recently finished shooting The Tempest with Reeve as the young prince, I am thrilled to cast him in an entirely different role as Peter Parker in SPIDER-MAN. When I first saw Reeve, he was performing with his terrific band Carney. The music of Bono and Edge requires an extraordinary talent— not only is Reeve a great rock and roll singer but his acting is equally fresh and authentic.”

I recently had the pleasure of being an extra in their music video for "Love Me Chase Me" which I'll be posting here as soon as it's released. I went to high school with the Carney family, who are all beautiful, talented, wonderful human beings and I'm thrilled that the world will finally get to know them!

Here's a clip of Reeve's band, Carney, performing at the Roxy in August. That's Reeve on vocals and & his brother Zane on lead guitar. Zane and the rest of Carney will be playing in the pit of Spiderman! Check out how ABSURDLY talented they are below.

And here's the music video for the first single from Zane & Reeve's sister, Paris, who, as you can see, is also ridica-talented.

If you live in the LA area, you can see Carney's final LA show before heading off to NYC by clicking here. It's sure to be an amazing show!
