According to HitFix on Friday, on the "Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon, "The Amazing Spider-Man 2's" Andrew Garfield guest starred and mentioned in an interview that he plays guitar. So Fallon requested he play a tune that both young and old would enjoy. Garfield played the obvious and classic "Spider-Man" song from the 60s.

Garfield had mentioned he is interview that enjoys a bit of Cat Stevens and Neil Young songs. Right after that mention, Fallon produced from behind his desk a guitar at the most convenient time. That's when Garfield went to town and got some even audience participation.

Also, there was a recent promotion for "SNL" where Garfield joined Bobby Moynihan in attempting different comedic outtakes to advertise for an upcoming episode. From a "comedy doctor" bit to an attempt at a failed Clint Eastwood dramatic routine, the duo provided the kind of comedy to expect in the upcoming episode featuring musical guest Coldplay.

For those who may be wondering what Marc Webb's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is all about, it basically is the key film that attempts to expand it's wings into a universe of its own. Garfield plays Peter Parker who finds out what his father did at Oscorp, now currently owned by his old friend Harry Osborn, played by Dean DeHaan. Even in the original trailer Aunt May, played by Sally Field, admitted that "secrets have costs". Seen in the background are inventions that appear to be analgous to the corresponding villains that Parker may be up against in future films that feature the Sinister Six.

The villain, played by DeHaan, was a role he had been looking forward to being a part off along with Garfield ever since he had seen the Sam Raimi trilogy of "Spider-Man". In fact, upon reading the script in conjunction with Garfield, he felt he's known his co-star for 20 years. He describes his villainous character as someone who has enough money and power to get anything he wants, but an epiphany in the film has made him realize he cannot even save his own life. Thus, his evil transformation takes place.

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is currently running in theaters now.
