Garfield: Hoffman's my favourite

Andrew Garfield has said he's chuffed to be starring alongside his "favourite living actor" Philip Seymour Hoffman in Broadway play Death Of A Salesman.

The Amazing Spider-Man star and the Oscar-winning Capote actor play father and son in the new production of the Arthur Miller play, marking Andrew's return to the theatre.

The actor, who picked up an Evening Standard Theatre Award for outstanding newcomer back in 2006, said of the new adaptation: "It was kind of, 'I want to see that show,' so why not be as close to it as possible? A part of me wished it was a really small, out-of-town theatre in a way. With the same cast and the same director, just in someone's living room."

Andrew described the wrenching, powerful play as "like one of those Whac-A-Mole games".

He added: "You don't ever want to feel like you're done because you never are. And if you think you are done, you're deluded and you're not working as hard as you should."

Death Of A Salesman opens at New York's Ethel Barrymore Theatre on March 15.
