Creator: Willem Dafoe

William J. Dafoe (born July 22, 1955), known professionally as Willem Dafoe, is an Academy Award-nominated American film, stage, and voice actor, and a member of the experimental theater company The Wooster Group. He's played a wide range of roles, from the Green Goblin to Jesus Christ. After watching Dafoe's performance in The Last Temptation of Christ, Sergio Leone was heard to remark "That's not the face of our Lord. It's the face of a psychopath."

In 2013, he provided the voice and motion capture for Nathan Dawkins in the video game Beyond: Two Souls with Ellen Page, and later starred in The Grand Budapest Hotel along with many well-known actors/actresses.

He has been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor twice—for Platoon in 1986 and for Shadow of the Vampire in 2000.
