Could Michael Sheen sign on to play a 'Bond' villain?

Back in April, Michael Sheen was cast in New Moon. Which was sad, because I now, occasionally have to talk about a Twilight movie. The good news is, according to anonymous sources (via MTV) he's now reportedly in talks to play Blofeld in the upcoming 23rd Bond movie - which is now being co-written by Oscar nominated screenwriter, Peter Morgan.

Peter Morgan and Michael Sheen have worked together before on films like Frost/Nixon and The Queen, so hopefully their previous collaborations result in Sheen being cast.

Blofeld has been played previously by several actors - Donald Pleasance (You Only Live Twice), Telly Savalas (On Her Majesty's Secret Service), Charles Gray (Diamonds are Forever), and Max von Sydow (the unofficial Bond film Never Say Never Again) - so I think Sheen could fit in pretty well, and make the character his own. I have a feeling he'll have the trademark white Persian cat, no matter how cartoonish it might seem in our current serious Jason Bourne influenced Bond world, I can't imagine Blofeld without the cat.
