Happy Birthday Willem Defoe, here’s a young David Bowie!

David Bowie at 17

The actor Willem Defoe turns 54 today, and he’s been in a lot of great films – Platoon, The Last Temptation of Christ, Wild at Heart, Body of Evidence, Speed 2, Mr Bean’s Holiday, and, of course, Antichrist – the new one from Lars von Trier about a couple having really unpleasant sexy time. He’s an edgy actor, make no mistake about it. Hence, we decided to by him a present, so we headed into the woods to poke a dead body with a stick and discuss things, and it wasn’t long before it boiled down to a toss up between a pack of smokes or a clip of a really youthful David Bowie standing up for the rights of young hippies. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Willem Defoe!
