Following his turn as David Frost in Ron Howard’s Oscar-nominated Frost/Nixon, Michael Sheen has picked up a number of other high profile films. Later this year, he’ll be seen in the estrogen magnet ‘Twilight Saga: New Moon’, as the Italian vampire leader Aro. He also lent his voice to the White Rabbit in Tim Burton’s 3D Disney adventure ‘Alice in Wonderland’.
Sheen will also be have a role in another upcoming Disney 3D movie, ‘Tron Legacy’. Despite early speculation that Sheen would be playing yet another villain… which he does do so well, he revealed that he would in fact be playing a nightclub host:

The test footage never ceases to stop me from blinking, so we can only imagine how insane the final product will be.
