Denis Leary Says Amazing-Spider Man Role Makes Him A Cool Dad

With things like Rescue Me and the Ice Age franchise on his resume, if Denis Leary’s kids don’t think much of what he’s done is cool, they’re incredibly tough on him. However, Leary’s finally getting a break from them thanks to The Amazing Spider-Man.

Leary steps in as Captain Stacy, the father of Peter Parker/Spider-Man’s (Andrew Garfield) crush, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), and the guy in charge when a giant lizard attacks the city. Not only does he have to decide whether or not Peter is good enough for his little girl, but he’s also got to figure out what to do with this masked vigilante who might be his only hope at keeping people safe from The Lizard.

While in New York City promoting The Amazing Spider-Man’s July 3rd release, Leary sat down to talk all about his kids’ high expectations, his producing and writing ventures and about hot cocoa, too.
