Sheen in New Moon

04.13.2009

It appears as though the TWILIGHT craze has claimed another victim. This time it's real life British thespian Michael Sheen, who has been cast in the upcoming Chris Weitz-directed NEW MOON. In it, Sheen will play the leader of the Volturi, an Italy-based coven of vampires who pose a threat to Kristin Stewart and her fair-skinned crew.

Sheen has plenty of experience with the occult, having portrayed a werewolf in all three UNDERWORLD FILMS, so I guess his casting is somewhat congruous with the rest of his career. Still, Sheen has steadily established himself as one of the finest actors from across the pond and his casting in the tween sensation simply goes to show that even Hollywood actors are not immune to the recession. Sheen needs to get paid, yo!

Great actor!

I love Sheen. I think he is a wonderful choice to play Aro. He'll definitly add to the movies.

Thats actually very inspired casting. The role while small in this film is immensely important to the rest of the series, and without this character being great, the other films would not have such urgency, at least that the books had. Yes I did read the books. Besides the 3rd they're all quite boring.

FYI

Michael Sheen aka the guy who banged Kate Beckinsale and spawned a child (my hero) before Wiseman got his paws on her. Yeah, this New Moon shite is growing on me.... and no I'm not gay!!!

Wow, I actually have a reason to wanna see New Moon now. I love Michael Sheen (in a totally hetero way) so this should be decent. I can see him playing that part too. It's not a very large role and he'll show up most likely near the end if they keep true to the book.

it's kind of ironic considering he was in something similar called UNDERWORLD. He Can do better that this shit. I always imagined him in a guy ritchie film for some reason.

first thing popped into my head was Charlie Sheen.
Michael Sheen is a great actor, but do you think he actually watched the first Twilight movie?
It was pretty much the worst vampire movie in the history of cinema.
