"It feels like when I was 4 years old and my Mum put on my first Spider-Man costume," The Social Network star, 27, recently told UsMagazine.com of slipping into the role of Peter Parker, last played by Tobey Maguire. "I'm just always very psyched."
He's just as excited about his costar -- and fellow Golden Globe nominee -- Emma Stone, 22, who's taking on the part of Parker's first love, Gwen Stacy.
"I just admire her as an actress," the British star told Us. "Her energy's incredible. She has just the most insane in a good way, the insane amount of contagious positive vibrations. She vibrates on such a high frequency. You can feel her and she's a prankster. She's just all around great."
