Tom Holland's Dad Wrote A Book About How He's More Famous Than Him And People Are Calling Him Bitter
"Tom Holland's dad wrote a bitter ass book about his son getting more famous than him."
Tom Holland's dad has been called before a jury of Stan Twitter to face alleged crimes of being jealous of his son's success and bitter because Tom is more famous than he is. The recommended punishment is cancellation.
So, you probably know Tom Holland for playing Marvel's Spider-Man. He's a pretty big deal.
What you might not know is that Tom's dad, Dominic Holland, was actually ~famous~ first. He's a British comedian who's enjoyed moderate success in the UK.
Back in 2017, Dominic wrote a tongue-in-cheek book called Eclipsed: Turns Out that Spider-Man Does Have a Dad After All. It was written before Tom found out that he had secured the superhero role and hilariously tells the story of Dominic realising his son is now more famous than he is.
The synopsis of the book reads as follows:
Eclipsed is a unique story about an ordinary family. Mum, dad, four boys and a dog, albeit the dad is a somewhat famous UK comedian who dared to dream and chance his arm at becoming a Hollywood screenwriter. By chance and just like in the best stories, his eldest son is talent spotted and after a series of serendipitous events, now finds himself as Marvel's new Spider-Man. Meanwhile, his dad is doing comedy gigs in village halls and primary schools. Written with great affection and warmth by a dad as proud as he is bemused, Eclipsed is a hilarious story and insight into family life. We all want the best for our children and we hope that they might eclipse our own achievements. But in the same business as us and before they even hit their teens? Come on, really?
