At last weekend D23 (essentially Disney’s Comic-Con), I was able to speak with Willem Dafoe about director Andrew Stanton’s John Carter. He talked about who he plays (Tars Tarkas), what the movie is about, and the challenges of making the film. For more on John Carter, you can read my 20 things to know about the movie from my edit bay visit. In addition, Dafoe also talked a bit about Odd Thomas, is he going to work with Guillermo del Toro on Pacific Rim, The Hunter (which premieres at TIFF) and Abel Ferrara’s The Last Day on Earth. Hit the jump to watch. You can also watch all my video interviews from D23 here.
