Off the Cuff With Peter Travers: Willem Dafoe

Daybreakers star Willem Dafoe stopped by the Rolling Stone offices to answer Peter Travers' burning questions this week: why is he the only vampire actor to be nominated for an Oscar? Why is he called Willem? And perhaps most importantly, why does he defend Body of Evidence? "Sometimes movies are taken and held up as whipping boys and people pile all their envy, confusion, anger, jealousy on it," he says.

Dafoe reveals he wouldn't want to be frozen in time ("The fact that we don't know when it's going to end makes life a good game"), admits playing creepies even gets to him ("Antichrist haunted me") and explains how the epic death scene from Platoon went down. Watch him slap a tambourine in precious parts of his body and tangle with Travers in the latest edition of *Off the Cuff*.
