Jim Sturgess - Jim Sturgess' Magical Moment As Spider-man

Actor Jim Sturgess will always be indebted to director pal Julie Taymor for including him in a Spider-man songwriting jam session with his heroes Bono and The Edge.
The U2 icons were working on the music for Taymor's ambitious Spider-Man musical and she decided to call in her Across The Universe stars Sturgess and Evan Rachel Wood for a workshopping session.
He says, "We were sorta going over their songs because I guess they wanted to hear what the songs sounded like coming out of actors' mouths when they're moving around and stuff.
"I have this amazing recording of me singing with The Edge playing the guitar, Bono as my backing singer and he's whispering, because I keep forgetting the lyrics... so you could hear him on the recording, like, whispering the lyrics into my ear."
Reeve Carney eventually landed the lead role in the project when it hit the stage in New York last year (10)
