Bringing a semblance of dignity to the Twilight film series, award-winning British actor Michael Sheen has joined the cast of the currently shooting second movie in the franchise, The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
Variety has the report on the casting of the Frost/Nixon actor. Sheen also has appeared in The Queen, Blood Diamond and of course the Underworld series. He played a werewolf in the latter films, though in the case of New Moon he’ll be appearing as the leader of the Volturi, those ancient Italian vampires from Stephenie Meyer’s hugely popular books.
New Moon focuses on the series’ heroine Bella as she’s “drawn into the world of werewolves while threatened by the Volturi.” Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will once again star in the film as, respectively, Bella and Edward, her vampire lover.
The Twilight Saga: New Moon hits theaters on November 20th.
