The long and short is that the married actor and father of two kids has taken it extremely easy since he became "Spider-Man,"even long after he passed on the torch to Andrew Garfield. But a surprise role has turned up. While it's already deep into production, Deadline reports that Maguire has joined the cast of Jason Reitman's "Labor Day" starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin. Co-starring J.K. Simmons, James Van Der Beek, Clark Gregg, Micah Fowler, Brooke Smith, Gattlin Griffith, Alexie Gilmore, Tom Lipinski and Brighid Fleming, the film is a Reitman-written adaptation of Joyce Maynard's novel.
"Labor Day" focuses on a thirteen year old boy from New Hampshire who learns valuable life lessons over a five-day Labor Day weekend when his mother (Winslet) inadvertently offers a ride to a wounded, escaped convict (Brolin). Maguire will play the adult version of the boy, and the actor will also narrate the film. "Labor Day" began shooting in early June in Massachusetts and presumably Maguire showed up to shoot a few simple scenes near the end. Next up for the actor is Baz Luhrmann's 3D-adaptation of "The Great Gatsby," but despite reports Maguire will not appear in Ang Lee's 3D version of "Life Of Pi."
