On how he got an offer to take part in the movie in the first place, the actor playing Aro in the 'Twilight Saga' series reveals that he was visiting his girlfriend, Rachel McAdams, on the set.
Michael Sheen is dropping a little tidbit on director Terrence Malick's top-secret drama. Coming as a guest star on Mark Kermode & Simon Mayo's BBC Film Review show, the actor known for his portrayal of David Frost on "Frost/Nixon" revealed that he will be seen sharing screen with Ben Affleck in the untitled Terrence Malick project.
Spilling the bean on what character he's playing, the 42-year-old actor gushed, "I got to be Ben Affleck's boss for a day." On how he got the small part, he recalled, "My girlfriend [Rachel McAdams] was in a film that Terrence Malick did so I went to visit her on set, and apparently, if you're an actor and you turn up on a Terrence Malick set, he asks you to be in his film."
More about the untitled Terrence Malick project are still kept under tight wraps. Back in February, a sneak peek was released in the form of a still featuring Affleck and McAdams sharing tender moment with a field as the background. This so-called moving love story is likely to open in theaters across the United States in 2012, though it has yet to get an official release date.
