Yay first post!!!

Michael Sheen as Aro...Genius. He sent chills up my spine. I don't know why I pictured Aro a little bulkier in the body department when I read the books..but you know what? Doesn't even matter because Sheen OWNED Aro. He was super creepy, but in a good way if that makes any sense. I cannot wait to see him in Eclipse..and hopefully Breaking Dawn!

Gii.. I so totally agree with you....
Michael did a brilliant job.....

I had expected Aro to look whiter and older... like they made Marcus look, and his voice i expected to be a big softer...
But Micheal just put in a new perfect form of Aro...

two thumbs up for Michael

Hello my fellow Halfway House residents!

I LOVED Michael Sheen as ARO. My favorite part was when he started laughing when Jane couldn't use his powers on Bella. Excellent job Michael!!

Yay, the topic I requested!

I LOVED LOVED LOVED Michael as Aro. He wasn't quite the look I pictured, but I thought he got the part down. He was my favorite part of the Volturi scene & totally made that scene awesome. They did a great job casting him. I can't wait to hopefully see him in BD.

Michael Sheen was pitch-perfect casting for Aro. As someone else mentioned, I felt chills up my spine when he laughed after Jane couldn't use her torturous ability on Bella. What a wonderful performance.

Hopefully, Michael Sheen will reprise his role as Aro in Breaking Dawn.

He did a good job. Definetely made me scream, "CREEPER!!!!" in my head everytime he opened his mouth. Or looked at Edward. Or so much as sneezed. (Can vampires sneeze?). Totally pulled off the scary power hungry leader/supercreeper look.

Michael Sheen as Aro = EPIC WIN! He looked as close to the Aro in my head as possible. I was happy that he got to say the la tua cantante line. And his laugh was perfectly creepy and everything I expected.

I watched his second appearance on Craig Ferguson and he was so funny. Best choice ever for Aro. Brilliant!

I don't know if anyone else noticed this by focusing on the face, but I love how Michael Sheen had Aro's eyes constantly moving around. With the red contacts, it looked rather creepy.
