Bio:

Quotes from Willem Dafoe's Characters

    • Van Houten:
      The important thing is not what nonsense the voices are saying... but what the voices are feeling.
    From The Fault In Our Stars. Submitted by Vernon R (51 days ago)

    • Van Houten:
      You are a side effect of an evolutionary process that cares little for individual lives. You are a failed experiment in mutation.
