Tom Holland Spotted on 'Spider-Man' Set with Jacob Batalon
Rumors started spreading last week that Jacob, a newcomer, has been cast in the film as Ned Leeds, though nothing has been confirmed as of now.
In the comic books, Ned is a reporter at the Daily Bugle, where Tom‘s character Peter Parker works. Eventually, he assumes the role of the villain Hoblogin.
Jacob is a relative newcomer to the industry. He was born in Hawaii and recently studied at the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts.
