Sheen Talks “Tron: Legacy” and “Eclipse”

Welsh thesp Michael Sheen (“Underworld,” “Frost/Nixon”), out doing promotion for the US release of “The Damned United”, tells Coming Soon that he’s not playing a villain but rather a nightclub owner in the upcoming sci-fi sequel “Tron: Legacy”.

Of the experience, Sheen says “That was amazing, because there’s a lot of green screen in that. But my stuff was mainly in this amazing set that they built because I’m a nightclub host, so they built the nightclub and there were hundreds of extras and it was one of those great scenes where there’s just loads going on.”

He also adds that Director Joseph Kosinski is not a fan of the CG motorbike ‘proof of concept’ trailer that’s currently online because “it’s moved on so much from that, and that looks awesome.”

Sheen also briefly spoke about his role of Aro, the leader of the vampire Volturi in the upcoming “Twilight” sequels. Though he has a key role in ‘New Moon’, he confirms he won’t be appearing in the third film ‘Eclipse’ though seems pretty certain his character will be back for the fourth film ‘Breaking Dawn’.
