Tom Holland Told He’d Be Spider-Man And Not Good-Looking

Simply, categorically, empirical, objectively incorrect!

Tom Holland shed some light on intense Spider Man Testing process – including a driver’s input on whether or not he will take the turn.

Tom has previously opened up about the stressful casting process. The British actor, which took place over the course of seven months and required “seven or eight different auditions,” said he had traveled to Atlanta “many times” for several on-screen auditions.

“It was an exemplary process, it was on a much larger scale,” he said.

Then, Tom got off on one of the most baffling stories I’ve ever heard behind the scenes, in which the driver pointed out that he wasn’t good looking. More specifically, that was Just The right amount of Not Good looking to be cast.

Tom recounted, “When I was going for the last test, I was driving there – I was very nervous. I had this driver – a likable guy, but he was a bit candid.” “He’s kind of sitting there in the car, and he’s talking to me and chatting to me and chatting to me.”

And he continued, “I’m a polite person, but I also want to be like, ‘Dude, please shut up; I’m trying to learn my lines.”

At that moment, Tom noticed that the man was looking at him through the rearview mirror. “He looks at me, and he says, ‘Do you know any kid? I think you’ll understand it,” Tom said in an easy shift to the American accent.

“I’m like, ‘Really?’ Why? And I was excited to hear that,” Tom shared. And he said, ‘You know what? I guess you’ll get it because the kid you drove over there? that it And therefore Handsome.'”


Which inevitably led to people theorizing about the other actor in the comments below. While some guessed it was Timothée Chalamet, only five other actors — Asa Butterfield, Judah Lewis, Matthew Lintz, Charlie Plummer, and Charlie Rowe — made it to the final screen audition process, according to Screen Rant.

And in case you were just wondering, this was Zendaya’s immediate (and relatable) reaction to the story.

Funny enough, Tom got hit by the driver after he was filmed and the filming process began. And Tom added, “And he’s gone.” “I was like, ‘What did you say to me?’ That I’d get the part or that I was ugly? “

Of course, the last laugh goes to Tom – who is definitively attractive and experimental (hello, again, I think you have to be Zendaya???), as well as the current (and best) Spider-Man.
