LONDON (Reuters) – British actor Tom Holland said he will portray legendary film star Fred Astaire in an upcoming Sony biopic, who is best remembered for dancing and singing with Ginger Rogers in several musicals, including “Top Hat” and “Swing Time”.
Famed as one of the greatest dancers of all time, Astaire had a seven-decade career in film and on stage in Broadway and the West End.
“I am playing Fred Astaire. The script came in a week ago. I haven’t read it yet. They haven’t given it to me,” Holland said.
“Amy Pascal has the script,” he said, referring to Spider-Man producer Pascal. “She FaceTimed me earlier. I was in the bath and we had a lovely FaceTime.”
Holland was speaking at a photocall for “Spider-Man: No Way Home” which he attended with his co-star Zendaya in London on Sunday. The two are dating.
The pair talked of their love for what they called the Spider-Man family. Zendaya, who plays Mary Jane in the film, said she was happy to have met Holland while working on the movie.
The pair are dating in real life as well as in the latest story on the big screen, which revolves around Spider-Man’s true identity being revealed for the first time.
“One of the most special parts of all this is the fact I got to meet Tom Holland. So I am incredibly forever grateful to ‘Spider-Man’ for that. And he’s obviously very talented and a lovely person,” Zendaya said.
