Tobey Maguire

Tobias Vincent Maguire (born 27 June 1975) is an American actor best known for his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the Spider-Man film series. Maguire was born in Santa Monica, California. His father, Vincent Maguire, was a construction worker and a cook. His parents were poor and in 1993 his father Vincent robbed a bank and was caught just one hour later.


Maguire initially worked as a child actor, beginning in his early teens. He appeared in a variety of commercials and TV and movie roles. One of his first roles was an extra in the 1989 movie The Wizard. He auditioned for a part in the series Parenthood, where he met best friend actor Leonardo DiCaprio (DiCaprio got the part although Maguire would appear as a guest star in later episodes). He then had a small role in This Boy's Life which had DiCaprio in the main role. Maguire gained attention with his role in the 1997 film The Ice Storm, directed by Ang Lee. This soon was parlayed in a variety of lead roles where he played a thoughtful boy coming of age, in films such as Pleasantville, The Cider House Rules and Wonder Boys.
In 2002, Maguire shot to superstardom in the title role in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man alongside Kirsten Dunst and Willem Dafoe which was based on the popular Marvel comics superhero, where he was praised for his performance as the web-slinging superhero and his alter-ego Peter Parker. He reprised his superhero role in Spider-Man 2, the Academy Award-winning sequel to the original blockbuster, which was released in 2004 and will don the Spider Costume once again in 2007's Spider-Man 3. There is a huge rumor that Columbia Pictures will begin talks with Maguire again to return for Spider-Man 4. After Spider-Man, he further solidified his stardom in 2003 with a leading role as the jockey John M. "Red" Pollard in the acclaimed film Seabiscuit, about the famous American racehorse Seabiscuit. In 2006, Maguire starred in his first villainous role as Corporal Patrick Tully in Steven Soderbergh's The Good German based on the Joseph Kanon novel of the same name opposite George Clooney and Cate Blanchett.
