While not exactly Ben Barnes eye-candy, I think that the casting of Michael Sheen will bring gravity & balance to New Moon. Read the rest here.
In New Moon, Sheen will play Aro, the leader of an Italian vampire clan called the Volturi.
Director Chris Weitz confirmed Sheen’s casting to The Mail on Sunday and said he had ‘aggressively’ pursued the actor.
‘Michael’s role is so important because he’s the head of all vampires,’ he said. ‘Aro is, on the surface, a very gracious and friendly vampire, but beneath that he is a tremendous threat.’
Thanks to Nino, Mary, Kim & Amber for keeping me on top of the TwiCrack while I'm out here in Vancouver utterly failing at my novice attempt at set-stalking and just stuffing my face on good food. :-)
