    Maybe Robertson? Don't think I've seen Smoove in anything a little more low-key and serious like that, but he's probably capable of it. I could see him as the Bugle's #2. Probably wouldn't want him as Jameson though, hoping for something a little less comedic from J.J. this time around.

    Could be. Personally I think he's the teacher who goes on the trip with the class. Think Martin Starr in Homecoming but a little bit of a bigger role

    Isn't this a trip for Peter and his friends and not a class trip.

    I'd imagine a group of underage kids going to another country are gonna have some sort of adult supervision, school trip or otherwise.

    The only way I can see Jonah fitting into Far From Home is if Peter starts working for the Bugle at the beginning of the movie and is informed to take pictures of an event that is transpiring while he is on the school trip to London. Maybe JJ can constantly call and harass Peter over getting some decent pictures.

    Definitely seems likely. They did say "lead/large" role, which would seem up and above a teacher role, but like you say, could just be a bigger presence in the movie than Starr & Choi (who were both awesome) in the first.

    Also, hell, weird out-of-the-box thought: Uncle Ben in flashbacks? Doubt it bigtime, but guess it's not out of the realm of possibility. Who's Pete supposed to be blood-relation with, May or Ben? I can't remember.

    Larry David playing someone who's not totally useless would be hysterical. :woot: Practical, street-wise, works-with-his-hands working class guy like movie-Toomes, I'd pay to see that.

    It'd be like...Keaton playing a tall guy with hair.

    Yeah that's what I'm guessing. I also heard that Deadline tends to exaggerate the size of roles so we'll see

    It really might not be a great time to introduce the Bugle given this seems primarily set out of NYC, but man I'm acheing for them finally established in the MCU. They've had quite a few opportunities since Spidey debuted, would have been so easy with those newspaper stands in NYC in Ragnarok.

    My guess either Robbie Robinson or a teacher on the field trip.

    Of course, and this could be a stretch, Watts and company could pull a "Civil War" and start the film with a silly villain like Big Wheel or whoever.

    Although, I've heard Smythe's name be dropped around in rumors.
