According to Daily Mail, Michael Sheen will be playing the character of Aro in New Moon.
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.’
Ok is it just me or is Chris Weitz doing a sucky job on picking characters for New Moon? This just basically my opinion but the guy he picked for Cauis he is way to young i think he was 20 and this guy is 40! And the Twilight Saga really attracts british people! First Rob, The guy playing Cauis and now this guy Michael is also British i dont mind though!But i dont think Dakota Fanning was a good choice but who knows maybe she will be a good Jane. And Nott Sear, as Heidi nah i dnt tihnk that’ll work out well i think AnnaLynne McCord would have been a better choice.
