Michael Sheen signs on to 'New Moon'

Michael Sheen will play a vampire in Twilight sequel New Moon. After playing a werewolf in the Underworld movies, it's safe to say that Sheen has an affinity for playing monsters. Sheen will play Aro, leader of the Volturi vampire coven. If you want to know more about Aro, ask your little sister, or girlfriend, or whoever. Just don't come to me, because I have no intention of getting wrapped up in the Twilight universe, Michael Sheen crush be damned.

Director Chris Weitz "aggressively" went after Sheen for the part and considering some of Sheen's recent work like The Queen and Frost/Nixon (admittedly I hated both films, but he was fantastic in them) it isn't hard to understand why Weitz would want him. I'm just wondering why Michael Sheen would sign on to this.
