No Shadows For Sheen

Michael Sheen has confirmed that he will now not be appearing in the new Dark Shadows movie. The actor was linked with the role of Roger Collins, which he had previously confirmed in an interview with BBC Radio.

However, speaking to MTV's Movie Blog about Dark Shadows earlier this week, Sheen said: "I, can't really talk about it... I'm not going to be doing it." In a separate interview with Collider, he explained: "It was something that got talked about, but it's not happening. It was a bit premature."

That's disappointing. I wonder who'll they'll get for Roger now? Especially with the movie soon to go into production.

who knows, they may have decided not to use Roger, but I always thought Kelsey Grammer would make a perfect Roger Collins.

It's a shame Kelsey Grammer is too old for the part ... :)

That stinks! Hopefully they can film the Roger scenes later. No one could fill Louis Edmonds' shoes--he was such a creep--but I hope they find someone soon!

How about Richard E. Grant in the role as Roger Collins?

Anthony said...

Michael Keaton or Kenneth Branagh would be a kick-ass Roger! I hope they find someone soon.

That's a shame...he would have been perfect....

Luke said...

I second the Richard E. Grant suggestion!

I vote for Ewan McGregor -- or Jude Law.

I think that Jude Law would make a great "Roger"...he's got that ambiguous sexual identity thing going on, like Louis Edmonds'"Roger".
