"Denis and I were kind of the only smokers on set. We would often find each other, me in varying degrees of reptilia and him on the other side of the law - a cop and a lizard sharing a smoke. I thought it would make a great poster - but, no, they didn't go for that." Welsh actor Rhys Ifans bonded with Denis Leary on the set of The Amazing Spider-man over their smoking habit. Ifans plays villain The Lizard, while Leary plays a police officer.
