The actor is joining the star-studded ensemble cast of Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express.
Branagh is directing and starring as the investigator Hercule Poirot, who must solve a murder case aboard a train while being surrounded by duplicitous passengers. Penelope Cruz recently joined the cast, which also includes Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley, Michael Pena, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Leslie Odom Jr. and Tom Bateman.
Dafoe will play Mr. Hardman, a passenger on the train who says he sells typewriting ribbons, but may have a deeper tie to the murder victim.
Looks like Johnny will have lots of old friends joining him in this movie. Johnny and Dafoe worked together in Platoon and Once Upon a Time in Mexico.
The movie is currently filming in the UK.
