However, its been more of a curse than a blessing for actor James Remar, whos been in Dafoes shadow for the last three decades because they look almost identical to one another.
Remar, who currently stars on the hit show Dexter, has never met his Hollywood twin but admits hed have some choice words for Dafoe if their paths ever did cross.
He explains, I get a little worked up about it sometimes. Weve been up for the same roles in the past and hes really stepped up to the plate and taken some good swings.
However, Remar says hell put his resentment aside and forgive Dafoe for taking his parts if he agrees to star in a movie with him.
Remar says, Itd be great if we could play brothers sometime. That would be a treat after hearing I look like Willem Dafoe 1,000 times. Itd be fun to capitalize on that!
