IO9 has just realeased some upcoming facts about Michael Sheen’s upcoming film Tron Legacy.
We recently had opportunity to speak with the cast and crew of Tron Legacy and hear some tantalizing anecdotes about the film’s production…like the time Daft Punk held a rave on set. Spoilers on! 1.) Michael Sheen based his character, the nightclub owner Castor, on glam rock legends.
My whole life has been inspired by [T. Rex lead singer] Marc Bolan and David Bowie. We talked about the character [and agreed...] that he should be larger than life when he appears. He brings a completely different [element] to the movie. He’s very chameleon-like. He has many facets and personalities, and you don’t where you stand with him. I like the idea of someone who’s reinvented himself over and over again. So all those things inevitably led me to Ziggy Stardust.
