NEW YORK – Look whos giving safety advice: Broadways one-time injury-happy Spider-Man.
Reeve Carney, who plays the hero in the hit musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark and Robert Cuccioli, who currently plays the Green Goblin, put aside their substantial comic book differences Thursday to team up and offer tips about keeping kids safe this Halloween.
Flanked by four costumed villains from the show and representatives from the citys fire and police departments, the actors reminded parents to examine all candy and never eat any unwrapped treats; ensure children wear flame-retardant costumes and masks that never impede their ability to see and hear; and avoid strangers or unfamiliar houses.
Weve had our differences. Unfortunately many of those played out in the public eye, Cuccioli said. But if theres one thing we can agree on, its public safety, especially during Halloween.
Asked what he was going to wear this Halloween, Cuccioli joked, Im going to go as a human.
