So he's going to be voicing Ryuk in the Live-Action Death Note adaptation.

Is it weird, I'm perfectly fine with this.

I mean Brian Drummond was absolutely perfect in the dub but Willem Dafoe might just be one of the only actors I could honestly have seen doing just as great of a job as Ryuk.

Though I'd more likely would vote for Brian if and when a Ryuk voice compare is finally made.

@Autovolt I think they could not have picked a better choice for Ryuk. It's just too perfect in my opinion. Even though Brian was brilliant as well. But Willem is better in my opinion.

Happy Birthday Willem Dafoe!

I love this guy. Willem is such an awesome actor. Norman Osborn still stands out as being one of my favourite aspects of the original Spider-Man movie. I love how he found a perfect balance between being menacing, scary, sympathetic, shrewd and chewing the scenery whenever he could.

I still quote lines like "Back to Formula?", "IMPRESSIVE!" and my personal favourite "DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I'VE SACRIFICED!"

His voice work as Gil in Finding Nemo was awesome, it was cool seeing him play a more cool aloof almost older brother mentor figure. Whenever Willem's onscreen or voicing a character. I enjoy his performances. I also hope someday he gets the chance to play or voice The Joker. I mean he sort of looks like him and we know he's totally would nail it, even if it'd be a bit typecast.

Like his voice for Gil but I prefer his Goblin in the Spiderman film & game.

Happy birthday, Willem. In my opinion, he just defines the Green Goblin. Yeah, a couple of other VAs did the character justice overall, but none of them come close to Willem's wicked tone and evil cackle. He's the only one out of all of them that makes him sound like a truly psychotic mad-bomber you wouldn't want to screw with.

There have been some cool performances for villains in comic-book movie adaptions, but Willem just got so into it. As Norman he kept a somewhat gentle demeanor, but he looked like he was always contemplating something, and when the pressure on him due to his career troubles as well as the serum got to his head, Willem held absolutely nothing back in portraying the Green Goblin as a twisted, demented creation of Norman's mind.

I hope he brings his awesome, distinctive voice to many more animation/video-game roles in the future.

Happy birthday, Willem.

I thought his Green Goblin was awesome. A definite stand-out from the live movie.

@Fulgore2005 Ah yes, I agree completely! His Green Goblin had a really wicked sounding voice that my friend and I loved.

I also really liked his cool performance as Gill from Finding Nemo.

Happy birthday Willem Dafoe, keep being awesome!
