4414 In addition to the recent Amazing Spider-Man 2 casting call that confirmed Jamie Foxx as Electro and the recent press release that announced the new Harry Osborn that mentioned Foxx as well, the actor now says that it will be exciting to play the film's villain.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight (via Celebrity-Gossip) about the role, Foxx disclosed, "Electro is a great character. I met with the director, Mark Webb, I met with Andrew Garfield, and we talked. … I think Electro will be an exciting character to play because he's a … genius electrician-type person, and he gets the short end of the stick from the whole world, and the next thing you know he turns it on."

Jamie Foxx also previously tweeted that he was trying on an Electro costume for Halloween and that it was a good fit.

Marc Webb also included an Electro costume Easter Egg in the first movie.
