Andrew Garfield is Heading to Broadway

The Social Network’s Andrew Garfield will be making his Broadway debut in an upcoming production of Death of a Salesman, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Garfield, who will play Biff in Death of a Salesman, will be joined on stage by Academy Award-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman (who will play Garfield’s father in the play). According to reports, the show will open in the spring at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre in New York City.

The 27-year-old star isn’t the only actor from The Social Network who’s hitting the stage; Jesse Eisenberg (who starred as Mark Zuckerberg) will be acting in an off-Broadway show that’s set to debut this fall.

Fans can expect to see Garfield in a couple of films next year, including the highly anticipated Spider-Man reboot (The Amazing Spider-Man), where he’ll be playing the web-slinger himself. The movie was directed by Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer).

Garfield recently made an appearance at Comic-Con, where he surprised fans by introducing the panel for the movie -- dressed as Spider-Man. Watch the video below.
