Adrian Lester Joins Spider-Man 3

UK’s What’s on TV magazine reports that “Hustle” and “The Day After Tomorrow” star Adrian Lester will join Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst in Spider-Man 3.

“I’ll be going straight from promoting ‘Hustle’ to filming ‘Spider-Man 3′,” he said. “I haven’t even had a script yet. All I know is that I’m playing a research scientist who tries to cure the baddie of whatever badness he’s got. I don’t even know who the new baddie is!”

Might his character try to cure Sandman, played by Thomas Haden Church? Or perhaps a second villain that hasn’t been revealed yet? We’ll have to wait and see when the third installment hits theaters on May 4, 2007.
