Quantic Dream raised more than a few eyebrows when they announced Ellen Page as the star of the PS3 exclusive Beyond: Two Souls, but that’s not the only major celebrity featured in the game. And this next rumored star is kind of a big deal.
According to GamesIndustry, an anonymous inside source “familiar with the project” says that an announcement for two-time Academy Award nominee Willem Dafoe will soon hit press releases.
Willem Dafoe is one of Hollywood’s most famous and recognizable stars, best known for his roles in Boondock Saints and the Spider-Man film franchise. However, his full film career spans an impressive and exhaustive amount of movies, including Platoon, Shadow of the Vampire, and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.
Personally, I’m super excited about this. Dafoe is either going to shine in a villainous role, or play against type as a heart-warming protagonist—either way, he tends to impressively steal the spotlight and chew up scenery.
