After more than 30 years in the business, Willem Dafoe continues to be regarded as one of the finest actors of his generation.
Dafoe first gained attention for his performances in the early ‘80s films Streets of Fire, and To Live and Die in L.A., but it was his role in Oliver Stone’s Platoon that earned him an Academy Award-nomination. Since then he has appeared in a wide variety of popular and acclaimed movies including The Last Temptation of Christ, Mississippi Burning, Wild at Heart, Clear and Present Danger, The English Patient, The Boondock Saints, American Psycho, Shadow of the Vampire (earning him his second Academy Award-nomination), Spider-Man, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Inside Man, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Hunter, and John Carter. Now Dafoe returns to the screen with a supporting role in the ensemble drama Out of the Furnace, which opens in theaters on December 6th.
Out of the Furnace was directed by acclaimed filmmaker Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart), and based on a screenplay he co-wrote with Brad Ingelsby (The Dynamiter). In addition to Dafoe, the film truly features an all-star cast that includes Academy Award-winners Christian Bale (The Fighter), and Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland), Academy Award-nominees Casey Affleck (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), Woody Harrelson (The People vs. Larry Flynt), and Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff), and popular actress Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness).
Set in the economically depressed steel industry town of Braddock, Pennsylvania, which is right outside of Pittsburgh, Bale plays Russell Baze; a local steel mill worker taking care of is ailing father and his girlfriend Lena (Saldana). Affleck is Russell’s brother Rodney Jr., a soldier about to go back to Iraq for another tour. Their lives change forever when a cruel twist of fate lands Russell in prison, causing Lena to leave him for Braddock police officer Wesley Barnes (Whitaker). Years later, home from the war and dealing with posttraumatic syndrome, Rodney Jr. is lured into a dangerous world of underground fist fighting by John Petty (Dafoe), a bookie and fight promoter who is family friends with the Bazes. Rodney Jr. owes Petty money and in order to pay off his debt, he begs Petty to set up a fight for him in an out of town fight club. Last seen with notorious fighting kingpin and meth dealer Curtis DeGroat (Harrelson), Rodney Jr. soon goes missing. Now released from prison, and with the local police unable to do anything, Russell must risk his freedom in order to find out what happened to his brother.

The Oscar-nominated actor discussed his new movie, how his personal history helped inform his character, why he didn’t do research for the role, what he looks for when choosing projects, his acting approach, working with Casey Affleck and Woody Harrelson, how Christian Bale has grown as an actor since American Psycho, collaborating with director Scott Cooper, and what he is looking for from a director.
