One of the worst-kept movie secrets in recent memory concerns who will be the villain in Sony's new 'Spider-Man' reboot – everyone and their brother has already guessed that it's going to be The Lizard. Websites like The Wrap were reporting that Rhys Ifans had been cast as Dr. Curt Connors (The Lizard's secret identity) back in October, but actor C. Thomas Howell has now made it even more official with a recent appearance on the Retroradio podcast.

Howell, a stalwart of '80s fare like 'Side Out' and 'The Hitcher,' has been cast in a small role in Marc Webb's 2012 film. Hit the jump for the actor's update on the project.
