So far a mere five actors have played live-action versions of Spider-Man.
Some are good, some are bad, some are just kind of there. Here they are, in ascending order of awesomeness.
Spidey on "the Electric Company"
5. Danny Seagren
The virtually anonymous actor who played Spidey as a silently spelling superhero on "The Electric Company” skits “Spidey Super Stories.” (Man, that’s a lot of alliteration.)
PRO: I always thought the costume was pretty good, and, frankly, if you were 3 to 6 years old in the mid/late 1970s, this Spidey was just the right titration of weird, scary and educational
CON: Per the theme song, “Nobody knows who you aaaaaare!”
Nicholas Hammond as Peter Parker, looking a little confused
This gent, formerly best known as Friedrich von Trapp in “The Sound of Music,” was 27 when he starred in the TV-movie pilot for “The Amazing Spider-Man,” a mere 13 episodes of which aired between September 1977 and July 1979. (In fairness, he played Peter Parker -- a stuntman played Spidey in costume, and it never looked like he could actually see out of the mask).
It had a spectacular theme song, a slice of 1970s funk that is ripe for sampling, and a similarly good score.]]
