Has anyone ever considered Josh Keaton as Spiderman?

It just occurred to me when I was re-watching Spectacular Spiderman that Josh Keaton was easily the best voice actor for Spiderman in any median, cartoon, video game, etc. So why not in a live action film? The guy is in extremely good shape, he's a huge Spiderman fan and already has excellent experience with the character.

Live action Spidey?

What are your thoughts? Would he play a good Peter Parker/Spiderman?

Not familiar with him. Is he related to Michael Keaton?

Voice Acting and Acting are two different things entirely.

I've always thought Brett Harrison would be a good Spider-Man:

I'm sure the guy is a great voice actor, but that's the thing. He's a voice actor, he doesn't have (much) experience with actual acting in movies. And that's kinda a big criteria..

@vicioushero: No, he was the voice actor in Spectacular Spiderman, Shattered Dimensions and Edge of Time.

@Aiden Cross: @Gambit1024: @TheGoldenOne: You all have a point, but it wouldn't hurt to give him a try. Some of the best performances came from unexpected casting.

Main character in Reaper (who was pretty relateable to Spider-Man as nothing really went his way), and he was in Grounded for Life when he was a little younger.

He looks hot so I say YAY.

plus I agree, his voicing of Spidey has been great so far. Also, people talking about voice-acting/acting, remember - he'd spend a LOT of time under his mask which is something Macguire and from the looks of it Garfield don't do much because they want to "act" more.

Reaper's on Netflix if you have it. It's a really good show.

Let's pretend it's because you know me so well instead of the fact I'm predictable and shallow. ^_^

I don't think that if a guy is a good voice actor that he can be a good live action actor.
