Andrew GarfieldEveryone is familiar with Garfield, the beloved comic strip cat who perpetually torments his owner Jon while dreaming about lasagna. And American history buffs, along with college professors around the country, can tell you all about U. S. President James A. Garfield, who was assassinated in 1881. But when it comes to famous Garfields, chances are that unless you're Andrew Garfield's mom, you've never heard of him.

Until now, that is.

That's because, as we told you last night, Garfield (Andrew, not the cat) has been cast as Peter Parker in the upcoming reboot of the box office smashing 'Spider-man' franchise. The announcement, which came as a surprise to many (including, apparently, Josh Hutcherson, who just yesterday was widely rumored to have landed the part), has fans of the comics and the films alike asking one simple question: Who is Andrew Garfield?
