Stephen Dorff is desperate to work with director Sofia Coppola again, because she handed him "the best role" in Hollywood "in the last five years" by casting him in SOMEWHERE.
The Blade star plays a bad-boy actor whose life is changed when his young daughter comes to stay, and the new movie has won rave reviews and earned Coppola the top prize at the Venice International Film Festival in September (10).
Dorff admits working with the Lost in Translation director was an "amazing experience" and fears he will never find such a good part again.
He says, "I've been in the business my whole life. I'm an old man. I'm 37 for Christ sakes. But after working with Sofia, I'm having a hard time finding anything that is remotely as good.
"Working with Sofia was king of like the kiss of death (sic). I told Sofia, 'I hope we get to do another one because it's very hard to find another one now after I've worked with you because it was such an amazing experience'.
"Certainly this is the best part I've ever played, especially in this time when there are less and less movies about real characters and original voices and directors that have original styles.
"Sofia gave me single-handedly, the best role in the last five years for a young man. Nothing compares to it. I've read everything and it is the best."
