Who cares that he looks like a cartoon character sketched during an acid hallucination? Willem Dafoe is awesome. In case you needed proof, here’s Antony and the Johnsons’ new music video, Cut The World.

Dafoe is one of the best actors on the planet. If you don’t believe me go watch To Live and Die in L.A. a few times and come back and say that to my face, punk! Sorry. I always get worked up when speaking of Dafoe. His intensity is contagious.

Back to Dafoe being awesome.

For some reason I’m a sucker for actors who make appearances in music videos, especially in today’s music video climate (which is frigid). Chances are the majority of people will never see this video unless they watch MTV at six in the morning, which makes Dafoe even more fantastic.

He doesn’t need to do music videos no one will see. He’s the freakin’ Green Goblin for Christ’s sake!
