Pixar/ColumbiaHe may be gearing up for The Fault in Our Stars with Shailene Woodley, but that doesn't mean that Willem Dafoe will stop talking about other projects. Case in point, his latest interview with Total Film.

With the news that there will be a sequel to Finding Nemo, titled Finding Dory, the legendary actor couldn't help but gush: "I've already started [reprising the role of Gill]. It's even better than the first. It's fantastic. It's good to say I think it's going to be better than the first; that's good advertising!" He continues, "It's difficult to repeat a success and so many years afterwards, but it's really cool. I've done one session so far and I just am going to have such a good time."

But not everything's all sunshine and rainbows for Willem. In regards to the reboot of the Spider-Man franchise — the star played villain Green Goblin in the Tobey Maguire-led films — he says, "I saw a trailer for [The Amazing Spider-Man] and I thought, 'This is crazy! It's not shot for shot, but it's the same story.' I thought, 'This is sort of a cynical approach to making money!'"
