But Sam could've always said no. I seriously doubt his job would've been in jeopardy. I think Arad suggested Venom(not forced)because he knew that everyone wanted to see him and that would've made the film a bigger success. I do agree however,that the last thing you should do is too have someone do something they're not comfortable with. But,at least with me,I'd sooner blame the writers and Sam than Arad.
