XXX: State of the Union: In recent talks with SciFi Wire, actor Willem Dafoe talked about his role in the upcoming XXX sequel, scheduled to hit theaters May 13th, 2005...

"I'll be doing some action stuff," Dafoe said in an interview. "Kicking and punching. I think I know how to do that."

"I like doing [stunts], unless it's a skill that I can't learn quickly, like car stuff," Dafoe said. "I've got no pride in that. That doesn't matter. But when I see a stunt guy do anything that I should do, it's like someone doing the scene for you, because the physical stuff so roots everything else that it freaks me out. If I see, for instance, in post [production] that they didn't bring me back [for a simple shot], so they hire a some guy dressed in my costume walking away, I'll say, 'That is not my walk. That is not my ass.' It's all part of it. So I think it's important to do that."

XXX: State of the Union also stars Ice Cube, Scott Speedman, Nona Gaye and Samuel L. Jackson.
