Happy Birthday Spider-Man (Sort Of)
I am sure that Tobey Maguire would like to be known for his many films roles other than Spider-Man, but if the costume fits…Today is Tobey’s 36th birthday, and he has appeared in dozens of TV and theatrical films in his career.
According to his bio on Wikipedia:
Tobias Vincent “Tobey” Maguire (born June 27, 1975) is an American actor and producer. He began his career in the 1980s, and has since become best known for his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the 2002 – 2007 Spider-Man films.
Maguire’s first appearance in a feature film was in 1989’s The Wizard. He plays one of Lucas Barton’s goons (one of three competitors at a video game competition) and had no lines. Maguire initially worked as a child actor in the early 1990s, often playing roles much younger than his chronological age; as late as 2002, Maguire was still playing teenagers while in his mid-20s. He appeared in a variety of commercials and TV and movie roles, working opposite such actors as Chuck Norris (Walker, Texas Ranger), Roseanne Barr (Roseanne), and Tracey Ullman (Tracey Takes On…). Eventually, Maguire was cast as the lead in the FOX TV series Great Scott, which was cancelled five weeks later.”
Happy Birthday Tobey Maguire!
