#AndrewGarfield has been rolling around the movie circuit since 2007 — his first break was in Sugar Rush, an excellent British TV show about nascent lesbians in Brighton — and over the last decade has cemented his place in Hollywood via roles in 2010's excellent adaptation of Never Let Me Go, The Social Network, and, of course, as the Amazing Spider-Man.

He's one of those quiet, unassuming guys you'd happily take home to mamma — not only because he's played Peter Parker — but also because of his wicked sense of humor and love for all things nerdy.

But sadly it feels like it's been an age since we last saw Garfield's face on the big screen, so we delved into his IMDb page to check out what the actor's up to next and, thankfully, it looks like it's been worth the wait!
