Dane DeHaan talks bulking up for The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been in production for just over two weeks, with director Marc Webb back at the helm of this superhero sequel. One of the new additions to the cast is Dane DeHaan, who plays Peter Parker's best buddy Harry Osborn. The actor hasn't begun shooting yet, but he is in New York preparing to take on the role, which includes a lot of eating and bulking up.

"We're already here, and I've been preparing. Right now it's just about getting all my work done and bulking up a little bit. I'll start shooting fairly soon in New York. I work out incredibly intensely six days a week and I eat every two hours. Mostly proteins and veggies. I consume at least 3,000 calories a day. I've already gained seven pounds in six weeks!"

Marc Webb is directing from a script Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and Jeff Pinkner.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released May 2nd, 2014 and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Felicity Jones, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field. The film is directed by Marc Webb.

    Sounds like our diet/goals are quite similar. Seven pounds in six weeks?! That must be some very lean muscle mass, because I gained 10 pounds in four weeks. Not to brag, of course.

    @bawnian-dexeus -- Not really. It concerns a session/transformation to take on a role, and it provides material for the journalists. Not entirely pointless, but nothing completely vital, either.

    The crazy kid from Chronicle is going to steal the show, because he's the only person that has been appropriately cast.
