Michael Sheen recently spoke to Adam Rosenberg over at MTV about the upcoming Tron film which will hit theaters in about six months.
Here is what Michael had to say:
“I’ve only seen what everyone else has seen so far,” he said. “Everything I’ve said so far, in terms of giving away facts about the character and facts about the story, I’ve said everything that I’m allowed to say. So I can’t reveal anything more. They keep you on a very tight leash with stuff like this.”
“I’m a fan first and foremost,” he said. “That’s a big part of why I wanted to do it, because I was such a fan of the first film. I was like 11 when it came out and it just blew me away. I never thought– if someone could go up to that 11-year-old boy in the cinema, when my uncle Russell took me to see the film, and said ‘You’re going to be in the sequel to this.’ …It would just be incredible.”
“I still felt like that a little bit when I walked onto the set on the first day, I still felt like that little 11-year-old boy going ‘Oh my god, I’m gonna get to be in this film!’ And the sets and there was new technology invented for the costumes and for the filming techniques… it was just amazing to be a part of it,” he gushed.
“And on top of all that to work with Jeff Bridges as well, who is one of my favorite actors of all time. So I’m just really excited about it… and to get crazy white hair, which I’ve always wanted.”
So will you be going to see Tron Legacy to support Michael Sheen?
