William Morris adds Dafoe to client list

Screen and legit actor Willem Dafoe has signed with the William Morris Agency, to be repped by Johnnie Planco of WMA’s New York office and by Michelle Stern in Los Angeles.

Since his screen debut in Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Lawless” in 1981, Dafoe steadily has made a name for himself starring in such films as William Friedkin’s “To Live and Die in L.A.,” Alan Parker’s “Mississippi Burning” and Martin Scorsese’s controversial pic “The Last Temptation of Christ.”

The Gotham-based thesp — who recently starred on-stage in an update of Eugene O’Neill’s “The Harry Ape” — earned an Academy Award nomination for his role as Sgt. Elias in Oliver Stone’s Vietnam pic “Platoon.” Dafoe currently co-stars in Fox’s “Speed 2: Cruise Control.”

He next will be seen opposite Nick Nolte and Sissy Spacek in the indie pic “Affliction,” directed by Paul Schrader.

Dafoe previously was repped by CAA.
