A number of other stars including Mena Suvari, Eliza Dushku and Elisha Cuthbert auditioned for the role of Mary Jane, which eventually went to Kirsten Dunst.

James Jarvis
Executive producer, GR Video

Hi I'm James or JJ if you like, I'll answer to both. I'm the Executive producer for GR video which means I've had at least a part in all the hot moving pictures you'll find on the site (even if that part was just saying, yes that's a good video). I also produce the Future Games Show and Golden Joystick Awards. Away from the office you'll either find me playing Fortnite, or walking my dog. I'm better at one than the other, I'll let you decide which.
