LONDON — Willem Dafoe and Udo Kier have joined the cast of Lars von Trier’s erotic drama “Nymphomaniac.”

Other additions to the cast include Jean-Marc Barr, Caroline Goodall, Kate Ashfield, Saskia Reeves, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Michael Pas and Omar Shargawi.

Move marks the completion of an ensemble cast of more than 60.
