If he didn’t play Spider-Man, even though he was part of a deal with Sony Pictures, Tom Holland intended to be part of the Disney family anyway: the actor even auditioned to play Finn in the recent trilogy of Star Wars, but it ended up ruining his hearing. The story was told by himself, in an exclusive interview for the website Backstage, published on the 18th.
When asked about tests for film roles that went wrong, Holland replied, “I had some,” he revealed, exemplifying milder cases, such as reading wrong lines at auditions. But he soon started telling about his audition to Star Wars The Force Awakens.
I was auditioning for the role of John Boyega [que mais tarde tornou-se o Stormtrooper Finn]. I remember doing this scene with this lady who was a droid. So I was saying things like ‘we have to get back to the ship!’. And she said ‘beep, bloop bloop, bleep bloop’. And I just couldn’t stop laughing. I thought it was so funny and I felt really bad, because she was trying so hard to be a convincing droid or whatever they are called. Obviously, I didn’t get the part. That was not my best moment.
Ultimately, who played Finn in the trilogy was John Boyega, first introduced as a First Order Stormtrooper called FN-127, before joining the Resistance with Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), and finally earning his name. The actor reprized his role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: The Skywalker Rise.
One year after the launch of the Star Wars The Force Awakens, Tom Holland debuted in the costume of Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, in 2016. The actor remains playing Peter Parker to this day in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), appearing in both his solo and Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home how much in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Ultimatum. Holland currently follows the routine of recording the third feature of Amigo da Vizinhança, which does not yet have an official title and, according to Sony Pictures, arrives in Brazilian cinemas on December 16, 2021.
On the other hand, Tom Holland is present in several projects in addition to the MCU. Last year, the actor was Jip’s original voice in Doolittle and Ian Lightfoot in Two Brothers: A Fantastic Journey, from Pixar. He also played Arvin in the original Netflix feature The Devil of Every Day and for this year, in addition to the third Spider man, Holland will play the protagonist who gives the film its name Cherry – Lost Innocence and will share the screens with Daisy Ridley (curiously Rey in Star Wars) in the movie World in Chaos.
