U.S. Olympic gymnast Danell Leyva, 20, who won the bronze medal for the United States last month and celebrated afterward by passing through New York City and hanging out backstage with Reeve Carney, 29, and the cast of Broadway's Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, might be in talks to join the cast of the show.
