Movie star Tobey Maguire came face to face with the real-life Peter Parker yesterday (29JUN04), when SPIDER-MAN's alter-ego namesake was invited to appear on MTV show TOTAL REQUEST LIVE.

The real-life Parker, who works as a photographer in New York, thrilled Maguire and SPIDER-MAN co-star Kirsten Dunst when they were special guests on the programme, to promote the sequel.

Parker told Maguire he was thrilled with the actor's portrayal of Spider-Man, admitting he was actually Peter Parker VI.

He said, "I come from a whole line of Spider-Mans. You can always get everyone to remember your name."
