Topher Grace on Scrapped Venom 2 Ad 4th Wall Break



It’s hard to believe, but not everyone from Spider-Man’s cinematic past made it to Sony No coming home and among them was Spiderman 3 star Topher Gracewho is currently on the ABC sitcom Domestical economy. Appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyersthe actor talked about a 4th wall breaking announcement, not exactly a multiverse breaking moment, but it would be his way of resolving his maligned turn as Eddie Brock/Venom in the Sam Raimi film while acknowledging the current film actor Tom Hardy an opportunity to promote Sony Venom: let there be carnage.

Grace’s plan to use home economics to launch an ad for Venom: Let There Be Carnage

The two began when Grace and Meyers recalled their previous interaction when the That 70s show The star was announced to play Venom in the 2007 film with Meyers jokingly asking if he voiced the character thinking it was the larger original incarnation before Grace told him it would be an original and joked that it would be “more popular”. “I actually had this idea,” Grace explained. “We couldn’t make it work as an ad, because ‘Home Economics’ literally premiered like a day after ‘Venom 2’ premiered. And I was like, ‘We should do an ad.’ They just couldn’t – It was like Sony and Disney and they couldn’t figure out where all of our “Home Economics” characters were sitting watching the “Venom 2” trailer. I just wanted my character to be like not So I’m like, ‘Who is this guy?’ They go, “Oh, he’s so crazy. He looks great.” I’m like, ‘I don’t know, I don’t know. Like, ‘Who is Tom Hardy?’ and they’re like, ‘You know, ‘Mad Max’ and ‘Dunkirk.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, but is he a good actor?’ and they’ll say, ‘Yeah, he was nominated for an Academy Award.’ I’m like, ‘Okay, but like a comic book villain?’ and they’re like, ‘Bane, yeah. He’s amazing!'”
