Are You Sexy Enough to Be Spider-Man on Broadway?

Hey, if Andrew Garfield thinks the movie Spider-man can be gay, Broadway's Spider-man can definitely be a raging, high-flying homo!

With hot star Reeve Carney departing the big-budget production of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark on Sept. 15, producers are holding two open casting calls —  Aug. 12 at Hollywood United Methodist Church in L.A. and Aug. 19 at NYC's Stage 48 — to find his replacement. According to a press release, "Hopefuls should be males in their late teens to early twenties of any ethnicity. They must have a great rock singing voice. They can be nerdy with an understated sex appeal and a good sense of humor."

Does that sound like your Gay.com profile or what?

You might recall that, back in 2011, in the wake of bad press, highly publicized injuries, and a much-delayed opening, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark welcomed three major gay additions to the creative team as Julie Taymor departed the production. Playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, a former Big Love scribe who wrote Spider-Man stories for Marvel Comics, swooped in to rewrite the musical’s book. The Boy From Oz’s Philip William McKinley and Chase Brock of the Chase Brock Experience also came to the rescue as the musical’s new director and choreographer, respectively.

Check out 14 of the limber and attractive cast members who have already performed onstage as Spidey and Spidey stuntmen, including Gayby star and Out100 honoree Matthew Wilkas, here.
