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.
