Topher as.... Venom??
Grace joins Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and James Franco, all of whom starred in the first two films. Thomas Haden Church ("Sideways") also has been cast.
"Spider-Man 3" directed by Sam Raimi, is scheduled for release May 4, 2007. The "Spider-Man" film franchise has grossed more than $1.5 billion worldwide for Columbia.
The rumors have run wild with which villains have been selected for the film. Since Haden Church's casting, word has been leaked that he'll be playing The Sandman, one of Spidey's oldest villains.
If that's true, it's my guess that Grace could be playing fellow Daily Bugle employee, Eddie Brock, who, in the comics, is possessed by the evil symbiote, Venom.
(personally, I hope I'm wrong since I find Venom to be pretty one-dimensional and boring.)
