'New Moon' Star Michael Sheen To Run A Nightclub In 'Tron Legacy'

In last night's "New Moon" trailer debut, the "Twilight" fans of the world finally got a glimpse of the members of the Volturi vampire clan in action. The group is led by Aro, a gaunt, ancient vamp played by "Underworld" werewolf Michael Sheen. As you might have gathered, the actor is no stranger to playing a bad dude.

He's going to be exploring his more fun-loving side for his appearance in director Joseph Kosinski's "Tron Legacy." The "New Moon" star confirmed to ComingSoon.net that he will step into the role of a nightclub owner. The nightclub in question is a location which will factor into a large-scale scene featuring "hundreds of extras."

"My stuff was mainly in this amazing set that they built because I'm a nightclub host, so they built the nightclub and... it was one of those great scenes where there's just loads going on," he said. Sheen went on to describe some of the effects he's seen so far as being better than the "proof of concept" short that we saw coming out of San Diego Comic-Con this past summer.

"[Kosinski] now says that he doesn't like people seeing [the SDCC short] because it's moved on so much from that," Sheen said. "And that [short] looks awesome." It does indeed, Michael.
