Michael SheenFrost/Nixon star Michael Sheen is to star as a bloodsucking vampire in the highly anticipated Twilight sequel.

Sheen has agreed to take on a prominent role alongside fellow Brit Robert Pattinson in New Moon, director Chris Weitz has revealed. He will play the character Aro - the leader of an Italian vampire clan called the Volturi.

Weitz says," Michael's role is so important because he's the head of all vampires. Aro is, on the surface, a very gracious and friendly vampire, but beneath that he is a tremendous threat."

Sheen will reportedly receive $7.3 million for taking on the role. Filming on New Moon is scheduled to begin in Italy this spring.
