According to Fangoria:
Actor Willem Defoe (American Psycho). An amazing actor who has been entertaining audiences around the world for literally decades with such classics as Streets Of Fire (1984), The Boondock Saints (1999), Shadow Of The Vampire (2000) along with literally countless other films… And it looks like he maybe about to join up for a new movie!
This movie being Guillermo Del Toro’s upcoming movie, Pacific Rim!
If Mr. Dafoe does end up joining the cast of Pacific Rim, he will be joining such actors as Charlie Day (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia), Idris Elba (The Wire) and Max Martini (Saving Private Ryan).
The part that Mr. Dafoe would play is the part of a scientist that is a bit of an aficionado when it comes to the Aliens invading the Earth.
Until then I thought that you guys might enjoy the trailer for one of Mr. Dafoe’s movies, American Psycho (2000):
