Jacob Batalon waves at the camera while running around on the set of his movie Spider-Man: Homecoming in this new photo snapped last month in Atlanta, Ga.
The newcomer was joined on set that day by co-star Tom Holland. It has been rumored that Jacob will play the role of Ned Leeds, though nothing has been confirmed as of now.
In the comic books, Ned is a reporter at the Daily Bugle, where Tom‘s character Peter Parker works. Eventually, he assumes the role of the villain Hoblogin.
Jacob is a relative newcomer to the industry. He was born in Hawaii and recently studied at the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts.
