Sheen off with Alice

7 years agoby:

Another actor has been cast alongside Johnny Depp in Tim Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND to play one of the fantastical characters of Wonderland. Though you might not think of Michael Sheen (THE QUEEN, FROST/NIXON) as the type of actor who'd be up for strapping on a ping-pong ball blue suit to act out some whacked out creature, but that's exactly what he'll doing. Sheen, currently an Oscar possibility for his role in FROST/NIXON, has signed on to star in the film but it's unclear exactly what character he'll be playing. If I had to take a guess I'll just say the Rabbit though I have no inside information. That's me just taking a stab at it. Filming is currently underway on the live-action portion of ALICE IN WONDERLAND with the motion capture stuff (where Sheen and Depp will come in) will happen later. Who do you think Sheen will play? Not the Cheshire Cat, right?

Extra Tidbit: Sheen has a daughter with Kate Beckinsale.

Good Man Sheen

Not because he is starring with Depp, thats not good, but because he has a daughter with Beckinsale. Good man! Good man!

Sheen was never married to Kate Beckinsale. They had been broken up for more than a year when she started dating "Underworld" director Len Wiseman. Now Beckinsale and Wiseman are married, and all three of them raise the daughter. Sheen and Wiseman are actually good friends - Sheen is going to be in the new "Underworld" film even though Beckinsale isn't!

That said, I can't stand Tim Burton.

The cast gets better and better

Just the inevitable Helena Bonham Queen of Hearts to go really...

This guy is great, one of Britain's best actors. I'm betting anything he'll be the Cheshire cat or the King of Hearts.

Yes xxxoverridexxx. He has a kid with Kate Beckinsale. They were married when they did Underworld. He plays Lucian the Lychan leader. That is just a pretty bad pic of him.

Has anyone seen a script for this? How are they doing it? Is it going to be episodic and wandersome (like the books and the Disney animated film), or are they going to try to connect everything with a contrived plot and have Johnny Depp show up with his schtick every fifteen minutes or so (boy needs a glorified cameo at best... making the Hatter, or any one besides Alice, a major character is a mistake) ? And, assumedly, they're doing a medley of the two books (akin, again, to the animated

The more I remember to debacle that was 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' the lower my hopes for this sink...
