Hey sexy, you want to get your freak on?

Our good friends over at ShockTillYouDrop.com have unearthed some juicy news about one of Willem Dafoe’s upcoming roles. The original Green Goblin himself has signed on to play the role of Gavner Purl in Paul Weitz’s horror-fantasy Cirque du Freak.

Dafoe’s character will be a vampire, which marks the third time he has had the blood lust in the movies. (The other two vampire roles were Shadow of the Vampire and Daybreakers.)

Here’s the plot of the film, according to ShockTillYouDrop.com:

The film revolves around a young Darren Shan, who, after attending an illegal freak show with his best friend, decides to become a vampire’s assistant in order to save his best friend’s life. Forced to leave his home and family forever, Darren joins the freak show where he meets a host of bizarre creatures and finds himself at the center of a war between the vampires and a rival clan.

Cirque du Freak will also star John C. Reilly, Ken Watanabe, Chris Massoglia, Josh Hutcherson, Patrick Fugit, Ray Stevenson, Michael Cerveris, Frankie Faison, Jane Krakowski, Orlando Jones, Kristen Schaal and Salma Hayek. It is set for a February 19, 2009 release.
