Today’s news:

Dafriend or Dafoe?

The Brooklyn Paper

Actor Willem Dafoe did a mini tour of DUMBO on Wednesday, first stopping at the General Store for some fine coffee and a little computer time before heading to Jacques Torres for a chocolately treat.

That’s where our photographer caught up with the hunk, whose career has seen him portray such characters as Jesus (“The Last Temptation of Christ”) and the Green Goblin (“Spider Man”).

He’s currently lensing the Werner Herzog drama, “My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done,” which is expected out next year.

Dave from dumbo says:
Computer time? At the General Store? The notoriously cheap cafe refuses to set up wifi for its customers, so I guess Dafoe maybe was just playing Tetris.
