It looks like Tom Holland is trading in his Spidey tights for dancing shoes! The Spider-Man: No Way Home actor confirmed that he’s going to play Fred Astaire in an upcoming biopic for Sony. While the film is still in its early stages, Holland told the AP that the script came in a week ago, but “I haven’t read it yet; they haven’t given it to me.” Regardless, let’s get into Tom Holland as Fred Astaire!

What Do We Know About The Tom Holland As Fred Astaire Biopic?

Astaire is thought to be one of the greatest popular music dancers of all time. He had a stage, film, and television career that spanned 76 years and included 30 film musicals (most notably Swing Time, The  Gay Divorcee, and Top Hat) and performances on Broadway and the West End in London. While we know that Holland can definitely get down with Rihanna, he actually does have a background in dance and ballet. He began his acting career on the London stage, playing the title role in “Billy Elliot the Musical” on the West End from 2008 to 2010, so having him play Astaire honestly feels like a perfect fit.

There’s no details on what the biopic will focus on, but I imagine one point of interest would be his work with Ginger Rogers, who was his dance partner for a total of ten films. Astaire also had a wide range of hobbies, including horse racing, playing the drums, songwriting, golfing, and later, skateboarding in his seventies, all of which I personally think would be highly compelling.

There’s no release date for the Fred Astaire biopic featuring Tom Holland, but you can soon see the actor swinging into theaters as Peter Parker/Spider-Man on December 17, 2021.
