Dafoe has spent much of his working life in experimental theatre in New York, as well as starring in over 70 feature films ranging from major Hollywood blockbusters (Spider-Man, Once Upon A Time In Mexico, Clear And Present Danger, Mississippi Burning, Platoon) to independent cinema (The Clearing, The Boondock Saints, American Psycho) and world cinema (Wim Wenders' Faraway and The Spierig Brothers' Daybreakers). Always choosing his projects based on artistic merit rather than box office potential, Dafoe has chosen a diverse range of roles that have offered him the opportunity to work with some of the best directors in the business; from Wes Anderson (The Life Aquatic) to Martin Scorsese (The Last Temptation Of Christ) and Spike Lee (Inside Man), to David Lynch (Wild At Heart), William Friedkin (To Live And Die In LA) and Oliver Stone (Born On The Fourth Of July, Platoon), Dafoe has worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood and around the world.

Jameson is a premium Irish Whiskey with an Irish character – light-hearted, confident with an independent spirit and an incredibly smooth taste. Triple distilled and twice as smooth with one great taste.
Triple distillation is what makes Jameson unique to American Whiskeys, which are typically only distilled once and Scotch whiskies, which are usually distilled twice. This tradition began in 1780 with the Great Master Distiller John Jameson, who worked out that three distillations was best for Jameson Irish Whiskey.
Whiskey is triple distilled to deliver twice the smoothness. But there is a little more to this precise craft - it's about getting the perfect balance right; the balance between just the right amount of malted and un-malted barley to give a natural barley flavor. Plus balancing the exact proportions of triple distilled Pot Still Whiskeys and then triple distilled Grain Whiskeys to deliver exceptional smoothness and balancing the sweet, nutty flavor from Sherry casks with the toasted wood and vanilla notes from Bourbon casks.
Not just a whiskey from one Single Distillery, Jameson is the world's Number one Irish Whiskey. Jameson Irish Whiskey has one great taste. Enjoy it as you like - neat, on the rocks or mixed in a long drink or cocktail.
