'Spider-Man': C. Thomas Howell joins the reboot

C-Thomas-HowellImage Credit: Michael Tran/FilmMagic.comC. Thomas Howell hasn’t been in a major Hollywood movie in a very long time, but that’s all about to change: EW has confirmed the report on Slash Film that the one-time ’80s child star (The Outsiders, Red Dawn) will appear in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot. Howell’s role in the film is unclear right now: Howell’s reps indicated that he will be playing a character named “Ray,” but have no other details. (The name does not immediately ring any bells in Spider-Man lore, other than possibly Ray Cooper, the supposedly deceased father of Spidey’s current comic book girlfriend Carlie.) Production on the film began in Los Angeles last month.

  • PeterBilt

    Awesome. Good news for Pony Boy. I am a fan of See Thomas Howl.

  • Brett

    I thought he might go the “Soul Man” route again and play Daily Bugle editor Robbie Robertson.

  • Griefo

    Finally, some love for the Soul Man.
    Glad to have him back.

  • efrain

    I love seeing a great actor get a major role!

  • Callie

    Awesome. He’s such a good actor who unfortunately hasn’t been taken seriously in movies since the whole “Soul Man” thing and it would be great to see him on the big screen again.

    C. Tom beat the ‘former teen idol’ curse, but then again, he was in ‘Outsiders’ with Tom Cruise, and some good luck rubbed off.

  • Shellibelli

    from the sound of things, this spiderman reboot will need a reboot later on.

  • Even though I love Sodapop the best

    Way to go Ponyboy!

  • Wade

  • Suzanne

    Love him! He’s so awesome on Southland and was so unbelievably creepy on Criminal Minds.

  • Beck


  • The Mad Gasser

    A reboot for Spider-Man… Seriously?

    Why don’t they just whore him out to other movies like Marvel used to do with every new series that had nothing to do with Spidey?

    C. Thomas.. wow I haven’t seen him since Far-Out Man

  • janie jones

    stay gold ponyboy!

  • D’s Advocate

    Perhaps he will play the murderer of Uncle Ben?
