Tobey Maguire Joins Kate Winslet & Josh Brolin In Jason Reitman’s ‘Labor Day’; Won't Appear In 'Life Of Pi'

The Playlist By Edward Davis | The Playlist July 11, 2012 at 5:03PM

Tobey Maguire's career in recent years resembles a guy who won the lottery. Between 2002 and 2007, the period of the three Sam Raimi-led "Spider-Man" films, the now-37-year-old actor only worked on two films in between the trilogy -- "Seabiscuit" and the supporting role in "The Good German." Post "Spider-Man 3," the actor has all of three credits on screen. The voice work he did for "Beyond All Boundaries," his severely underrated performance in Jim Sheridan's "Brothers" and "The Details," a Weinstein Company indie that was shown at Sundance in 2011 which the studio is apparently releasing this fall via their VOD Radius shingle.

Tobey Maguire Joins Jason Reitman’s ‘Labor Day’

Tobey Maguire's career in recent years resembles a guy who won the lottery. Between 2002 and 2007, the period of the three Sam Raimi-led "Spider-Man" films, the now-37-year-old actor only worked on two films in between the trilogy -- "Seabiscuit" and the supporting role in "The Good German." Post "Spider-Man 3," the actor has all of three credits on screen. The voice work he did for "Beyond All Boundaries," his severely underrated performance in Jim Sheridan's "Brothers" and "The Details," a Weinstein Company indie that was shown at Sundance in 2011 which the studio is apparently releasing this fall via their VOD Radius shingle. 

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."
