Topher Grace Makes Up Venom's Best Lines

by | May 4, 2007 | Comments

Villains are usually the coolest part of any action movie. They usually have outlandish character traits and the best lines. "Spider-Man 3" finally gives us Venom, and actor Topher Grace made sure that he was the funniest as well as the most formidable villain.

"The script wasn’t done when I signed on, so there was kind of like places open for ideas," said Grace. "A lot of it was me talking to Sam [Raimi]. I had a couple Sam ixnayed which he was probably right to do so. But yeah, ‘My spider sense is tingling’ was one of them [that made it]."

In context, when Venom throws Spideys own trademark back at him, it’s impeccable. But wait, what were the juicy lines that Raimi vetoed? "He let me do it and then we watched on playback and realized that’s probably too much. It’s when I landed on the car and Mary Jane’s in the car. Originally I go, ‘Ooo, looks like I traded up from vanilla to strawberry.’"

"Spider-Man 3" is out today and currently has a 63 percent score on the Tomatometer.
