Aro Has Been Cast!

Michael Sheen as Brian Clough in The Damned United

The Easter Bunny is obviously a Twilighter, for he has given us yet another surprise: Michael Sheen is reported to have been cast as Aro!

He has immortalised Tony Blair, David Frost and, most recently, legendary football manager Brian Clough on the big screen.

Now actor Michael Sheen is set to return to the realm of the firmly fictional after agreeing to play a vampire in the sequel to the blockbuster film Twilight.

Sheen, 40, who made his name with uncannily realistic portrayals of well-known figures in Oscar-winning films The Queen, Frost/Nixon and The Damned United, will get his biggest pay cheque yet, a reported £5million, to star in New Moon.

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.’

Thank you to both Cullen Boys Anonymous and Eyes of Amber for the tip!

I'm not so sure about this...

I mean, sure, he's played a vampire before, but that wasn't exactly the same, was it? Decide for yourselves...I want some reader feedback about this!
A reader has informed me that Michael played a werewolf in Underworld, not a vampire. My bad!

By the way, here's a pic of him from Underworld:

And here's an article from The Examiner about the new addition to New Moon's cast.

  1. Michael Sheen played a werewolf in "Underworld", not a vampire. He is a wonderful actor. You'll have to watch some of his work...


Don't leave me hangin'!
