Career Q&A with Willem Dafoe on September 26, 2017. Moderated by Jenelle Riley, Variety.

Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nominated actor Willem Dafoe continues to make his mark in entertainment through a myriad of challenging roles, working alongside the industry's most respected talent.

Dafoe will next be seen in Tommy Wirkola’s What Happened to Monday?, with Noomi Rapace and Glenn Close. This film is set in the future and in a world where families are limited to one child due to over population and follows a set of septuplets who must avoid being discovered by the government. Following that, he lends his voice in Adam Wingard’s Death Note with Nat Wolff. The film follows Light Turner (Wolff) who stumbles upon the ‘Death Note,’ a journal in which he can write anyone’s name and kill them at any time, in any fashion he wants. Dafoe plays the role of Ryuk, a shinigami or “death god,” who guides Light to use the Death Note and then watches chaos unfold.

Late this year, Dafoe will be seen in Sean Baker’s The Florida Project opposite Bria Vinaite, Brooklynn Prince and Valeria Cotto. The film follows a 6-year-old and her friends who are homeless, living in extended-stay motels on the outskirts of Orlando, Florida. Dafoe plays ‘Bobby,’ the manager of the motel, whose job requires him to be a handyman, an office grind, a den mother, a father figure, and a law enforcer all at the same time. Originally premiering at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival acquiring rave reviews, A24 is slated to release the film October 6, 2017. After, Dafoe has Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express, starring Jonny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Dame Judi Dench. Adapted from the book Agatha Christie, the film follows a lavish train ride through Europe quickly unfolds into the thrilling mystery of thirteen strangers stranded on a train. Twentieth Century Fox will release the film November 10, 2017.

Dafoe is currently in production for James Wan’s Aquaman opposite Jason Momoa and Nicole Kidman. Dafoe will be seen as ‘Nuidis Vulko,’ a key venerated academic and politician in Atlantis who comes from the generation before Aquaman’s. Exact details of Vulko’s role in the film are still being kept under wraps. Warner Brothers is slated to release the film December 21, 2018. Following, he will begin lensing for Julian Schnabel’s biopic At Eternity’s Gate, which follows the Dutch Post-Impressionist artist, Vincent Van Gough, (Dafoe) and the time he spent in Arles and Auvers-sur-Oise, France.

Most notably, Dafoe garnered critical acclaim for his Oscar®nominated supporting role in the category of Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Shadow of a Vampire. The film is a fictionalized account of F. W. Murnau’s making of the classic vampire film Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens. During production, the crew begins to have disturbing suspicions about their lead actor, Max Schreck, (Dafoe), who arrives onto set in full Gothic regalia, asserting that he is indeed a vampire.  He was also nominated for a Golden Globe®, Screen Actors Guild®, Critics Choice®, and won a Film Independent Spirit Award and Satellite Award on behalf of this performance. Prior to that, Dafoe also received critical acclaim for his Oscar®nominated supporting role in the category of Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Oliver Stone’s Academy Award winning Platoon playing ‘Sargent Elias,’ one of the leaders of the US infantry platoon near the Cambodian border during the Vietnam War.

Willem Dafoe - Part 2

As his career has moved through decades and crossed into a new century Willem Dafoe has only become more experimental and varied in his parts as he's aged. This week Stephen and Andrew tackle the vast array of roles he's played from 2000 to the present day. Beginning in 2000 with his Oscar nominated role in Shadow of the Vampire, Dafoe went on to play a second iconic villain as the Green Goblin in Spider-Man. His rarely used comedic talents were put to the test in Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and in 2007 with Mr Bean's Holiday. 2009 saw him in seven films including Lars Von Trier's Antichrist while his third Best Supporting Actor Oscar nod came in 2014 with Sean Baker's The Florida Project. 2018 saw a Volpi Cup win in Venice and his first Best Actor nomination at the Oscars as Vincent Van Gogh in At Eternity's Gate. In 2019 he starred opposite Robert Pattinson in Robert Eggers' salty, smoky seadog horror The Lighthouse and in Edward Norton's noir drama Motherless Brooklyn.

Willem Dafoe - Part 1

Call us Ishmael, because we've just landed our first white whale! In celebration of our first anniversary we've decided to cover the inestimable Willem Dafoe. Over two episodes we'll be looking at his long, varied screen career with Part One covering his work in the 80s and 90s. From Kathryn Bigelow's biker drama The Loveless to William Friedkin's amoral masterpiece To Live and Die in L.A. Dafoe's early film years were dominated by villains and dirtbags. This changed with Oliver Stone's Platoon scoring him his first of four Oscar nods and his first role as Willem Dafriend. More varied roles came in the tail end of the 80s with Martin Scorsese's The Last Temptation of Christ and Alan Parker's Mississippi Burning. This led to his role as Bobby Peru in David Lynch's Wild At Heart, his first collaboration with Paul Schrader in 1992's Light Sleeper and his first collaboration with Abel Ferrara in New Rose Hotel. His ceaseless work ethic, iconic features and desire for challenge put him in good stead as the 90s gave way to the 2000s.

Devin & James dig into the massive filmography of Willem Dafoe, one of the greatest and most distinctive actors working today.  From his start as the ultimate tough guy in 80's flicks like "Streets of Fire" and "To Live and Die in LA," through more mainstream work in major hits like "Spider-Man," and into some of the most physically and emotionally intense art and horror films ever committed to celluloid in masterworks like "Anti-Christ" and "The Lighthouse," we try to catch as much as we can (and still miss a few) of his 136 IMDB acting credits!
