It could easily be said that casting the role of all-American teen Peter Parker with British actor Andrew Garfield is like, well, shooting "Captain America" in London. Just wrong. But both were done this past year, and it's hard to argue that Garfield isn't up to the acting challenge as he, and his one of co-stars in " Spider-Man," Emma Stone (who'll play Gwen Stacy), were each nominated for Golden Globe awards for their roles in "The Social Network" and "Easy A," respectively. Some scoffed at Tobey Maguire initially, as well, and that turned out OK.
