Actor Willem Dafoe, who has portrayed a series of tortured souls in movies during the past six years, says he doesn't look for those parts.

"I simply look for characters rich with possibility," he said in an interview published Sunday in The New York Times. When considering a role, though, he said he always asks, "Is this character involved in a struggle?"The struggles attract the 34-year-old actor, who plays a Greek Jew in a Nazi concentration camp in the new film "Triumph of the Spirit."
