Willem Dafoe loves his fangs

Willem Dafoe is once again set to play a vampire, this time he has been cast in Universal Pictures' Cirque du Freak. The horror-fantasy, directed by Paul Weitz, also stars John C. Reilly, Ken Watanabe, Chris Massoglia, Josh Hutcherson, Patrick Fugit, Ray Stevenson, Michael Cerveris, Frankie Faison, Jane Krakowski, Orlando Jones, Kristen Schaal and Salma Hayek.

The film revolves around a young Darren Shan, who, after attending an illegal freak show with his best friend, decides to become a vampire's assistant in order to save his best friend's life. Forced to leave his home and family forever, Darren joins the freak show where he meets a host of bizarre creatures and finds himself at the center of a war between the vampires and a rival clan.

Dafoe has played a vampire a total of 2 other times, once as Nosferatu in the film Shadow of the Vampire, and his performance scored him an Oscar nomination. The second time in an upcoming film called Daybreakers. Dafoe certainly loves to exercise his right to suck blood.
