Check it out. Bryce Dallas Howard, daughter of director Ron Howard, has been cast as Gwen Stacy in Spider-man 3. Gwen Stacy, for those of you who don't follow the Spider-man comics, is another of Peter Parker's love interests, but she hate Spider-man 'cause the blames him for killing her father. Just like every other character in the Spider-man comics.
Anyway, there's a lot of speculation out there that the Gwen Stacy character is being introduced in this film to deal with the eventual departure of Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane. All I know is, Kirsten Dunst was never, ever good in the Spider-man movies, and should be tossed out on her ass, ASAP. Of course, they're probably going to come at her with even more money next time around, so I'm sure she will continue to stink up the Spider-man movies for years to come.
At least in this go-round, she won't have as much time on screen. By the way, is it just me, or does anyone else find that Bryce Dallas Howard kind of looks like Mischa Barton in these pictures?
