Paul Giamatti is in talks to play The Rhino in Amazing Spider-Man 2. Wait, what?

The We almost don't believe this news but it's to mind blowing not to at least discuss. Rumor has it that Paul Giamatti — yes, THAT Paul Giamatti — is in talks to play The Rhino in Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man 2, according to THR. Now, just let the thought of an apoplectic Rhino screaming about fucking Merlot sink in...

Apparently, this is a dream role for Giamatti, who told ShowbizSpy in 2011 that, "[The Rhino] was the greatest thing when I was a little kid...It was a guy who was basically in this rhinoceros outfit and I always thought, ‘Why don't they have The Rhino in one of their movies,' but maybe The Rhino wasn't that big of a deal for anybody but me...If they ever go with The Rhino, I would be ready and waiting."

Aw hell, we're in.
