Willem Dafoe: 'Norman Osborn' To 'John Carter'
I've never read the books and to be honest I'm not all that impressed with Kirsch's acting ability. But on the other hand I'm in total agreement with Babs. Dafoe is an incredible actor who only knows how to make hot movies. I am now curious to find out more about the comicbook series.
Aw man, I thought Dafoe was going to be John Carter (don't care if he's "old"). Had me all excited Babs. Kirsch? He did not impress me. (That Silver Fox chick didn't either.) Anyway, didn't know they had made comics of the novels.
I LOVED the John Carter books - they were my favorite by Edgar Rice Burroghs (Tarzan is OK, but the Martian adventures were so much better)...and Marvel's run on the comics was pretty fun to read.
I'm going to assume that Dafoe will be Deja Thoris' father (though I guess he could be a Green Martian - hmmm...from the Green Goblin to a 9-12 foot tall, tusked warrior with 4-arms and swords - nice change)...
The idea of Taylor Kirsch as John Carter and Lynn Collins as Deja Thoris is great...this is a movie I will be watching out for...
Dafoe is just a phenomenal actor anything he's in I'll watch it. It's a shame he won't be returning for Boondock Saints 2. He was another reason why that movie was great.
Also, read that Thomas Haden Church will be in it but the role hasn't been specificed yet.
