Looks like someone's angling to get that last star-shaped hole in their "Portraying One of New York's Finest" punch card. Denis Leary has signed on to play George Stacy, father of Peter Parker love-interest Gwen Stacy in Marc Webb's Spider-Man reboot. Leary's character is a police captain who, in comics lore, dies because of one of Spider-Man's battles, making his daughter hate the superhero. After spending the last decade on The Job and, subsequently, Rescue Me, you'd think he'd be ready to finally tackle portraying one of the brave men of New York's Department of Sanitation, wouldn't you?
