Video: Spider-Man actor in 30ft stage plunge

The troubled Broadway musical 'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark' was plagued by its fourth accident since it began previews last month, when an actor performing an aerial stunt fell about 30 feet, fire officials said.

Spider-Man Broadway musical looks like turn off

Two years ago, a young British actor called Andrew Garfield gave an interview to this newspaper in which he was asked about a string of plaudits that had seen him included in Variety's prestigious list of future Hollywood stars.
