Spiderman, Transformers, Altar Rock and An Interview with God all make new casting announcements

Spider-Man: Homecoming looks like it will have more names attached than the entire nine seasons of Seinfeld before it finishes casting, as new additions Garcelle Beauvais (White House Down), Tiffany Espensen (Kirby Buckets) and  Tyne Daly (Cagney and Lacey) all take on as-yet-anonymous roles.

The new names join the likes of Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Michael Keaton, Abraham Attah, Zendaya, Michael Barbieri, Kenneth Choi, Tony Revolori, Marisa Tomei, Donald Glover, Martin Starr and Logan Marshall-Green in the film, which is currently in production.

Transformers: The Last Knight has followed suit and added Santiago Cabrera (Heroes, Merlin) to the recently announced Michael Bay project, but similarly the production has not released and details on the role he will play.

Meanwhile, New Zealand actor KJ Apa (Riverdale) will join the cast of Andrzej Bartkowiak’s indie thriller Altar Rock which is inspired by the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

Actors Brenton Thwaites and David Straithairn are also set to star in An Interview with God, which is now wrapping their shooting in the New York City area. The film will place Thwaites in the shoes of a rising journalist who has been granted an interview with a man who claims to be God.
