Who is Michael Sheen in TRON LEGACY?


"The most recent announcement was that [Michael] Sheen would be playing a role in Disney's upcoming Tron Legacy and everyone automatically assumed he'd be playing a villain but earlier, he revealed exclusively to that he would in fact be playing a nightclub host in the Tron world.

'That was amazing, because there's a lot of green screen in that,' he told us, '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 went on to comment on the much-viewed short film (the Grid VFX Concept Test) that was used as a demo to get the film greenlit, saying that the movie has far surpassed the impressive CG work in that film. '[Director Joseph Kosinski] did that to get Disney to give the okay to make the film. Joe now says that he doesn't like people seeing that because it's moved on so much from that, and that looks awesome.'"

Dang. If he says that the Concept Test compared to the real thing is nothing more than a screensaver then we're in for a world of digital awesomeness come next December!
