Willem Dafoe to star in Beyond: Two Souls alongside Ellen Page

Famed Hollywood actor to be featured in psychological action thriller

Willem Dafoe, star of movies such as Spider-man and Auto Focus, will be starring in Beyond: Two Souls, the latest title from developer Quantic Dream.

Dafoe will be starring alongside Ellen Page, who appeared in films such as Juno and Super.

Page has the lead role of Jodie Holmes, a woman who possesses supernatural powers through her link to an invisible entity.

The supporting role of Nathan Dawkins, an enigmatic scientist working for a government division studying paranormal activities, will be played by Dafoe.

A central theme in Beyond: Two Souls is Dawkins’ professional curiosity in Jodie, driven by personal tragedy.

Quantic Dream writer and director, David Cage, said the subtleties of Dafoe’s performance are capable of fully realising the game’s “rich and evocative narrative.”

“Ellen and Willem were cast for their immense talent and they bring with them the same passion and dedication you would see in the movies they star in,” he said.

“Never before have I seen this calibre of acting performance in a video game.”

This is not the first time Quantic Dream has featured renowned talent, with the studio’s breakout hit, 1999’s Omikron: The Nomad Soul, being notable for its inclusion of the digital likeness of David Bowie.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
