Jamie BellSpeculation is mounting that British actor, Jamie Bell, has been cast as the lead in the much-anticipated Spider-Man reboot.

Bell, who shot to fame in Billy Elliot ten years ago, is said to have won the race to play the web-slinger ahead of a host of young hopefuls including Josh Hutcherson (Journey To The Centre Of The Earth) and Alden Ehrenreich (Tetro).
