Episode #01 | Jacob Batalon - Local Boy Turned Spiderman’s Best Friend

This week we are excited to welcome local boy turned Spiderman’s best friend – Jacob Batalon! Born in Hawaii to Filipino parents, Jacob attended Damien High School in Kalihi. After moving to New York and studying acting he quickly made a name for himself in the Netflix movie North Woods. That led to the audition of a lifetime and he was cast as Ned Leeds in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Since then, he has appeared in different installments of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider Man and Avengers movies as Spiderman’s right-hand man. Jacob has also played roles in movies such as Every Day, Blood Fest, Night School, Let It Snow, and Banana Split. Tune in as Lanai & Brook hang out with Spiderman’s Best Friend!

    Hey guys, I love the show, as you can guess from my email, I’m from Guam, I’ve lived here for 14 years, and I’m 16 years old. I’d love to be able to come on the show and share some stories from being the “local white kid” and what it’s like to be in a community that both accepts you but doesn’t at the same time. Also I’m trying to convince my dad to take a job out in Hawaii at one of the Air Force bases, and was wondering where good housing is for the best prices
