April 11, 2013 marcie Dane News Comments Off on Why we’re watching: Dane DeHaan


Oh look, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt had a baby!
This is Dane DeHaan, a young actor who’s got a few big fish to fry this year.

What sort of fish?
First, the Pennsylvania native will star opposite Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes and Bradley Cooper in The Place Beyond the Pines – he plays Gosling and Mendes’s teenage son.

I’m sorry, I zoned out a bit there – you mentioned Ryan Gosling. What else can we see Dane in?
He’ll play Lucien Carr, a member of the Beat Generation, in Kill Your Darlings, where he shares an on-screen smooch with Daniel Radcliffe’s Allen Ginsberg, and then there’s a little film which you may have heard of called The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – out next year.

Little film? Spider-Man? Who does he play?
Dane’s only gone and nicked James Franco’s gig as Harry Osborn, Peter Parker’s best friend.

Smooth. Yep, that, too.
He’s also the face of Prada’s S/S 2013 campaign. And did I mention the Metallica film? I’m telling you: he’s going to be huge.

He says: “I’m drawn to characters with complicated lives – the more impossible it seems, the more exciting it is.”

We say: This Dane’s got game.

The Place Beyond the Pines is released on 12 April
