Sam Elliott hasn't heard from 'Spider-Man' ... yet

sam-elliott-did-you-hear-about-the-morgans-pr-gi.jpg Sam Elliott may be high on a wish list for the forthcoming "Spider-Man" reboot, but he hasn't heard from the web-slinger's reps.

At least not yet.

As famous for his grizzled look as the deep, unmistakable voice that has promoted everything from beef to (currently) trucks, the veteran actor reportedly is among the top choices to play Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson in the next chapter of the Sony Pictures franchise that will introduce Andrew Garfield ( "The Social Network") as the new friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

"I had no idea," Elliott tells Zap2it of the apparent interest in him for the Jameson part. "I just like to work, and the first consideration is that it be decent work, good work. That said, I feel like I'm lucky. I've had this career for a long time. It's what I've wanted to do since I was a little kid, and I've just been blessed. It's been good for me and good for my family, and hopefully, I've been relatively good to the business."
