AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

Martin Sheen spoke with Movies.ie about his role in "Stella Days" and his experience on the set of "Amazing Spider-Man."

"It has really come down to, and not just me but for a lot of guys my age who have been around as long as I have, you either get offered small parts in big pictures or big parts in small pictures," Sheen told Movies.ie. "I love playing the big parts in small pictures because it is about what we do for a living, but you get paid far more to play a small part in a big picture [laughs] so Spider-Man permitted me the luxury of doing Stella Days because it was such a big pay day. I loved it, it is very rare these days that I am on a set where there are so many people fussing over so many things. There are like, 200 people on the set and they are all very engaged. I had very little to do, but it was great working with Sally Field, she is one of my favorite people in the whole world.
