Michael Sheen Cast in New Moon

Michael Sheen Hops Aboard the New Moon Express

Many fans were surprised to see a young, up-and-coming new actor cast as Caius, one of the three Volturi leaders, in New Moon. So I'm wondering if you'll find this new cast member more age-appropriate.

Michael Sheen, best known for his portrayals of famous historical figures in movies like The Queen and Frost/Nixon, will take on the role of "leader of the Volturi." I'm assuming this means he'll play Aro, which is exciting. Sheen's a well-respected actor's actor and adds a kind of thespian credibility to the production.

What do you think? Can you envision Sheen as an intimidating, powerful vampire? Does Sheen's involvement make you think this movie is starting to sound pretty good?

i can definitely see them making him all pale and creepy and stuff. puma-i agree 100%...i watched it again last wknd and i think hardwicke left out some really important scenes and the whole edward/bella love was SO rushed. i don't feel like there was enough interaction between Bella and the Cullens either (esp Alice..they are supposed to be bffs!). hopefully this director does it better.

this will be interesting. so far i'm digging who they've cast for the volturi clan. LET'S JUST HOPE THE DIRECTOR GETS THE SPECIAL EFFECTS RIGHT. not to beat a dead horse, but as much of a fan of twilight i am, the movie was shot horribly and made me dizzy. hardwicke made the camera spin during pivotal scenes that were supposed to be focused and had so many unnecessary shots. and i'm still pissed about nikki reed being cast as rosalie. i pictured rosalie MUCH different.

This should be good. He was pretty fantastic as a werewolf in Underworld.

I think I can see it working. The cast is sounding pretty interesting. As much as I loved Twilight, I'm hoping the general quality of acting is better in New Moon.

I can see him fitting the role. To bad it wasn't Kate's current husband because he is hot! :)

well i think that the more people they add to the cast the better things sound. i don't know if i really know too much about him to say whether it's a good thing or not but i'm still really excited.
