Willem Dafoe has played so many bad guys in the past that when we sat down with the legendary actor and got this easy going and gentle man – we were instantly reminded what a phenomenal actor he really is.

We chat with Dafoe exclusively about his new film, The Florida Project; what attracted him to this project and what it was like for a veteran actor to co-star with new-comers,  Brooklynn Prince and Bria Vinaite.




The Florida Project opens in theaters on October 6th. For more info, visit the film’s official website at, http://floridaproject.movie/.
