We're ranking the best Harry Osborn actors of all time. As Peter Parker’s best friend, Harry Osborn knows a thing or two about leading a double life. Just ask his dad, Norman. As the son of a successful business mogul, Harry likes to flaunt his wealth - often at the expense of those around him. But while Harry might seem cold and calculating at first glance, dig a little deeper and you'll see just how generous and caring he really is. A charming and often unpredictable character, Harry eventually follows in his father’s footsteps and becomes the Green Goblin.

While Dane Dehaan and James Franco made Harry Osborn famous in their live-action portrayals, there have been numerous animated iterations. From Gary Imhoff’s long-standing role in Spider-Man: The Animated Series to Ian Ziering’s blonder, bulkier take in Spider-Man: The New Animated Series, each Harry Osborn actor has brought something unique to the table. In The Spectacular Spider-Man, voice actor James Arnold Taylor played a much younger and Harry Osborn, while Matt Latner's take in Ultimate Spider-Man gave Harry a more updated and sophisticated look.
