New Moon Casting: Michael Sheen as Aro

Even though Michael Sheen is best known as playing a werewolf in the Underworld Series, Summit Entertainment has confirmed to play the vampire Aro in the Twilight Saga: New Moon. Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner have already begun filming New Moon in Vancouver.

The Examiner says:

Summit Entertainment has just confirmed that Michael Sheen has been
officially cast for The Twilight Saga: New Moon as Aro. Like others who have been recently added to the Twilight sequel cast, Sheen boasts an extraordinary resume, and from the looks of our discussion about him (see here and here to view the discussion and add your thoughts), fans are (mostly) pleased with the addition.
Sheen, who has previously been a werewolf in the Underworld series, will portray a vampire in The Twilight Saga: New Moon, and many fans see it as a good choice for his part. Aro, the character which Sheen will play in New Moon, is a centuries-old leader of the world's vampires, and, though playing a fairly small role in New Moon, becomes an essential character (a favorite to some) throughout the continued series.
