Michael Sheen as Aro?

According to Daily Mail, Michael Sheen has been cast as Volturi leader Aro.

"Sheen, 40, who made his name with uncannily realistic portrayals of well-known figures in Oscar-winning films The Queen, Frost/Nixon and The Damned United, will get his biggest pay cheque yet, a reported £5million, to star in New Moon.

In New Moon, Sheen will play Aro, the leader of an Italian vampire clan called the Volturi.
Director Chris Weitz confirmed Sheen’s casting to The Mail on Sunday and said he had ‘aggressively’ pursued the actor.
‘Michael’s role is so important because he’s the head of all vampires,’ he said. ‘Aro is, on the surface, a very gracious and friendly vampire, but beneath that he is a tremendous threat.’"

What do you guys think? I'm not totally sure he's how I pictured Aro, we'll see when we finally see the transformation from Michael Sheen to fearsome Aro =p

as a little in joke me and a few of my Twilight obsessed friends have, we like to think as this guy playing Aro.

WARNING image may traumatise/ruin the way you've pictured Aro. Thanks Amber for the image lol.
