Actor drops out of 'Spider-Man'Broadway show

Alan Cumming

NEW YORK -- Paging a new Green Goblin.

"Spider-Man Turn off the Dark" has lost the services of Alan Cumming, who was to have portrayed the villainous character in the long-delayed Broadway musical.

Spokesman Adrian Bryan-Brown said in a statement Tuesday that Cumming withdrew from the show about the famous web slinger because of "a scheduling conflict."

At one time, the lavish musical was set to begin preview performances in late February with an official opening at the Hilton Theatre set for sometime in April. Bryan-Brown said no further details were available at this time
