Kill Your Darlings

Following a breakout role in Josh Trank’s Chronicle, Dane DeHaan has found success with impressive turns in the likes of Lawless, Lincoln and The Place Beyond the Pines. It should come as no surprise then that he was chosen by Marc Webb to play Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. In a recent interview with Time Magazine, he was asked when exactly work begins on the sequel. “We’re already here, and I’ve been preparing,” he revealed. “Right now it’s just about getting all my work done and bulking up a little bit. I’ll start shooting fairly soon in New York.”

There have been rumours and speculation that DeHaan may suit up as the Green Goblin in this new trilogy, although that would be a huge departure from the comic books which saw his father first take on the villainous persona. However, could this be why he’s bulking up for the role? “I work out incredibly intensely six days a week and I eat every two hours. Mostly proteins and veggies. I consume at least 3,000 calories a day. I’ve already gained seven pounds in six weeks! I weigh more right now than I’ve ever weighed in my whole life.”
