Paul Giamatti says he has been ''waiting all my life'' to play a comic book villain and was ecstatic when he landed the role of The Rhino in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'.
'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' star Paul Giamatti longed to play a comic book villain.
The actor will play The Rhino - a nemesis to Andrew Garfield's titular hero - in next year's web-slinging sequel and he admits he has always wanted to act in a big budget superhero movie.
He said: ''I totally wanted to play a villain in a comic book movie. I've been waiting my whole life to be a villain in a comic book movie. When I was a kid, I didn't even know I wanted to be an actor, but I knew that I wanted to be like The Wolfman, or some bad guy in something. That's what I wanted to do. I wanted to be those guys. For Halloween, that's what I would do. I wanted to be The Mummy. So, it's great. I get to do that. It's awesome!''
Giamatti's role in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' is expected to be minimal as Jamie Foxx will play the film's lead villain - Electro - but the actor revelled in the opportunity of making his dream come true nonetheless.
He added to Collider.com: ''I went completely over-the-top with it. I seemed to have carte blanche to just go and ham it. He's an animal. I took it literally. In some ways, he's literally a rhinoceros inside. He's just a big, dumb animal. I'm not a big, huge guy, but I thought that I could be a big, stupid animal. That's what he is, so that's why I thought it would be fun.''
