We don't usually report on every actor's fantasy role, but when a highly-respected, Oscar-nominated "actor's actor" like Paul Giamatti (Cinderella Man) offers up his comic book movie dream character we have to sit up and take notice. In a recent interview with ShowbizSpy, Giamatti revealed that he is "ready and waiting" to suit up as Aleksei Sytsevich, aka The Rhino, if Sony ever decides to use the character in a future Spider-Man movie.
I thought Rhino was the greatest thing when I was a little kid. It was a guy who was basically in this rhinoceros outfit and I always thought, "Why don’t they have The Rhino in one of their movies," but maybe The Rhino wasn’t that big of a deal for anybody but me.
