    Our new favorite face, Andrew Garfield, continues to make the rounds promoting his flick Never Let Me Go, which also stars Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan. Talk about awesome casting.

    Here's Andrew looking all kinds of yum (isn't his hair the best in Hollywood now?) in London at the premiere of the film, which opened the BFI London Film Festival on Wednesday. So what's he saying about prepping for Spider-man? And did he really beat out Robert Pattinson for the role?

    Rumor has it Andrew is working out hard with a trainer and has quit smoking so he can get in fighting shape to be the man in blue and red.

    "It's very daunting. I don't take it lightly. I know it belongs to everyone, that role, so I'm going to do everything I can to make sure I honor it," Garfield told the U.K. Press Association.

    But did the role really belong to his good mate Rob?

    That's what some blogs have been speculating, but we're told by a solid source R.Pattz was never in the running to play Spidey.

    Rob in tight Spandex jumping from building to building never added up to us anyway.

    We're getting more and more excited to see Andrew as Peter Parker! The casting so far is on point with Emma Stone and Rhys Ifans joining. Don't ya think? Or would you have rather seen Rob in this blockbuster?
