Role for Directors Brother talk about a role that might be played by the brother of Sam Raimi, director for Spider-Man:
It was previously reported by numerous trades that Ted Raimi, the brother of Spider-Man director Sam Raimi, would play the character of Dr. Curt Conners in the movie. It was believed this would only be a small role and that in potential sequels the character/villain would be played by a 'bigger' actor with more box office pull. Last week a scooper told us the fact that his friend was contacted by a person dealing with extras who told him that he would have to sign a confidentiality agreement because some false info had apparently leaked out about the production.

One of these things was that Ted Raimi wouldn't play the character called Dr. Curt Conners after all, who later becomes The Lizard. We followed up on this with Sony who told us today that Ted "plays an office worker at the Daily Bugle. Not sure of the character's name at this point, but will let you know when I find out."

Now unless the Daily Bugle has a one-armed-geneticist working for them then, yes, he could still be Conners. But at this time we don't buy it - we'll let you know as soon as possible when we get the name of his character.
