Sony Casting Young Actors for Spider-Man?

Moviehole is reporting that Sony Pictures is launching auditions for a young Peter Parker and Billy Connors, the son of Curt Connors, for the untitled Spider-Man reboot. The site says:

Sony want a dark-haired Caucasian boy to play actor Peter Parker at age 4 to 6 years old. Ideally, the boy should look a little like Andrew Garfield...

In addition, the studio's on the hunt for an actor to play Billy Connors, the son of Dr. Curt Connors... Applicants need be between 8 and 11 years old.

The movie starts shooting in December for a July 3, 2012 release.

I think this might be very cool. I always wanted to see Peter's life before he became Spidey. I do want to see his actual parents, so that would be interesting. Maybe they can build a whole mystery behind his parents disappearance in the movies? That might be interesting. So anyways, please leave a comment in the usual place below!

Personally, I think it would be an interesting choice to cast a middle aged man as the young Peter Parker. Also, he shouldn't have to audition, and the director should seek him out, maybe by checking blog posts. I don't know if this is too advertisingal, but my group, The Octomen has made an amusing comic strip about Spider-man. Actually, it's man-spider!
