    To me Dafoe is too creepy: The Green Goblin & Wild At Heart, the psycho in THE CLEARING, he's scheduled to play Tars Tarkas in John Carter of Mars! He specializes in very strange characters. I just don't see Willem as square-jawed, sentimental ol' McGee. How about Tommy Lee Jones. Now he could carry McGee!

                      To my mind, an ideal actor to play McGee is Willem Dafoe (also one of the very best American actors for the past three decades). Now, I don't remember exactly how old McGee is in the books, so perhaps Dafoe is too old for the part. Di Caprio is a very good and very professional actor, I doubt that he will do a bad job. He may be too _young_ for the part...
