Willem Dafoe is a renowned Hollywood actor whose death news went viral earlier this week. The fans of the actor turned to the Internet to learn the truth about their favorite actor’s condition. We are pleased to report that the Platoon star is alive and well. The news of his death was nothing but a hoax.

Who is Willem Dafoe?

William J. ‘Willem’ Dafoe is a renowned American actor. He is a founding member of the experimental theater company, the Wooster Group. Over the decades, he has received many accolades and nominations for his phenomenal performances. He was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role Elias in Oliver Stone’s Platoon and Max Schreck in the comedy-horror film Shadow of the Vampire (2000).

His other noteworthy projects are The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), the English Patient (1996), American Psycho (2000), and the Spider-Man trilogy (2002-07). His most recent works include The Florida Project (2017), Aquaman (2018), The Northman (2022), and Poor Things (2023).

What happened to Willem Defoe?

Recently, Willem Defoe’s death hoax stormed the Internet, leaving his fans concerned for the well-being of the actor. The hoax seems to have originated from his role in an upcoming movie, Beetlejuice 2. It is a dark comedy sequel to Tim Burton’s 1988 film Beetlejuice, starring Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, and Catherine O’Hara.

The sequel adds new characters, portrayed by Willem Dafoe, Justin Theroux, and Jenna Ortega (Netflix’s Wednesday star), who plays Ryder’s onscreen daughter and O’Hara’s granddaughter.

Dafoe recently revealed new details about his character in the film, saying,

“I play a police officer in the afterlife, so I’m a dead person,” Defoe said, “And in life, I was a B-movie action star, but I had an accident, and that’s what sent me to the other side. But because of my skills, I became a detective character in the afterlife. So that’s my job. But it’s colored by who I was (when I was alive): a B-movie action star.”

His character in the film is dead, or rather undead. That is the reason behind the death news making rounds on the Internet. Defoe is alive and well and ready to show the world his new project, Beetlejuice 2, which will be released in theaters on September 6, 2024.
