Tom Holland has played Spider-Man over three films and is getting to portray Hollywood legend, Fred Astaire. Although he is just about to hit the peak of his career, Tom Holland has revealed that he has considered stepping away from acting. The 25-year-old actor was candid about his next step in an interview with Sky News on Friday as he was there to promote his upcoming movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is poised to become one of this year’s highest-earning films.
However, during the conversation, the performer expressed that he was considering taking his career in other directions after completing all of his planned professional obligations. Holland said to the outlet, “Genuinely, I’m sort of … having a midlife crisis at 25, I’m having like a pre-midlife crisis.” The Spider-Man star also points out that his involvement in the Spider-Man franchise allowed him to ‘do some amazing things.’
Holland went on to express that he was considering focusing on dancing in his further efforts as a performer. However, the actor may be putting his dance experience to work in the upcoming Fred Astaire biopic, in which he is set to star. The news about the forthcoming biopic was initially made known to the public earlier this week when it was announced that the performer would take the lead role in the movie.
Holland also stated that development had just begun on the biopic and that he had not had a chance to read its script. The performer spoke about preparing for the role during a recent interview with Variety, where he noted that he would ‘dust off the old tap shoes…and start taking tap lessons.’ The Devil All The Time star also said that he was well-suited for the starring part given his past experience.
Holland, who previously starred in a Broadway production of Billy Elliot, made a point of expressing that his experience on the show would not factor into his portrayal of the dancing great. A release date for the yet-unnamed feature has not been announced to the public.
