MTV News caught up with actor Michael Sheen as he promoted the ensemble Woody Allen film "Midnight in Paris," and we discussed his return to the meaty role of Volturi leader Aro — specifically his thoughts on taking the villainy up a notch or two in the final two "Breaking Dawn" films.
"Hopefully it's a mixture of things," Sheen said when asked if Aro transitions to full-on bad guy or toes the line between good and bad. "He's much more of a presence than he was in 'New Moon.' He's such a wonderful character, and I hope that I've brought a variety of things to it, not just that he's the evil bad guy. I hope there's a whole mixture of things there."
Sheen once described Aro as having dichotomous tendencies. "He's very calming on the surface, very gentle and soft on the surface. But beneath, he is a psychopathic killer," he said. "He's a great character, and I had a great time doing it."
Sheen will be joined in "Dawn" by fellow Volturi members Jamie Campbell Bower as Caius, Christopher Heyerdahl as Marcus, Dakota Fanning as Jane, Cameron Bright as Alec, Charlie Bewley as Demetri and Daniel Cudmore as Felix.
