EW has an article on the Michael Sheen 'New moon' casting & how it has been both popular and added gravitas to the cast:
"But you've also got to wonder if Weitz sought Sheen out because he'd lend the production a credibility that even the casting of Dakota Fanning as Volturi member Jane hadn't managed. Comments on our weekend news brief about Sheen's casting make you think he might've succeeded:
Sara: Holy crap! Now I will definitely go see this movie! I love Michael Sheen!
beelkay: Fantastic! Now that I can get behind. I just hope all these good actors they're getting lift the original cast's game rather than overshadow them.
