Tom Holland attends a photocall for "Spiderman: No Way Home" at The Old Sessions House on December 05, 2021 in London, England. American actor and dancer Fred Astaire (1899 - 1987).

News that Tom Holland is being cast as the legendary actor, dancer and singer Fred Astaire in a new biopic for Sony has been met with mixed reactions on social media.

In a recent profile for GQ, Sony producer Amy Pascal teased that she wanted Holland for the part of Astaire in the forthcoming movie, as well as another trilogy of Spider-Man films.

However, some have expressed skepticism about the project, with many social media users highlighting the late Astaire’s wish that he never be the subject of a biopic. Others cast doubt over Holland’s suitability for the role. For those who don’t know about Holland’s background as a performer, 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. In 2017, Holland performed a mashup of Gene Kelly’s “Singin’ in the Rain” and Rihanna’s “Umbrella” on Lip Sync Battle, which shows off his undeniable dance skills.
