  • Опубліковано 16 лис 2018
  • With more than 100 credits to his name, actor Willem Dafoe is known for his versatility. He's portrayed a soldier in "Platoon," the Green Goblin in "Spider-Man," and a hitman in "The Grand Budapest Hotel." Now, he plays Vincent Van Gogh during his final years in the new movie "At Eternity's Gate," distributed by CBS Films, a division of CBS. Dafoe joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss how learning to paint transformed the way he sees the world and the tumultuous period of Van Gogh's life that the film focuses on.

    Dafoe is a great actor. I don't know if he's won an Oscar. But, he deserves one.

    They left out Jesus. He also played Jesus, in The Last Temptation of Christ.

      Willem DaFoe is Jesus. That’s why they didn’t need to mention anything.

    Van Gogh did not cut off his ear. It was sheared off by a piece of sheet metal in a fight with Paul Goguin in Goguin's apartment.

      Previous month I managed to receive my first five figure check ever!!! I've been working for this provider on the internet for 24 months now and I never been happier... They are paying me $95 per hour, and the most important thing about it is that I am not really that tech-savvy, they just asked for basic idea of internet and plain typing skill...The best thing about this job is that I have more time for my loved ones. I am in a position to devote quality time with my friends and family and take care of my babies and also going on holiday vacation along with them very routinely. Don't miss this chance and make sure to respond fast. This is what I do... *newsuperb71­.­c­o­m*

      So sad how marvel has warped the minds of an entire generation. Never take a roll in a Marvel movie, it will take forever to wipe that fesces off your shoe. Thankfully Dafoe is powerful enough as an actor to do just that.
