Underworld Star Joins Burton’s Alice in Wonderland

Michael Sheen joins AliceMichael Sheen, no relation to Charlie or Martin, has joined the cast of Tim Burton’s twisted re-imagining of “>Alice in Wonderland, according to this morning’s Variety.

To date, Sheen is known to the mass market for his portrayal of Tony Blair in both The Queen and The Deal, and he will next be seen as David Frost in Frost/Nixon. He’s best known to horror fans, however, as the Lycan Lucian, whom he’s played in all three Underworld films. No word on what role he’ll have in Alice, but I’m guessing it won’t be a key political figure or a werewolf.

Johnny Depp is on board as the Mad Hatter for Burton’s film, and we’re still waiting to find out if Helena Bonham Carter will be joining him. Actually, it’s probably more of a “when” than an “if”.

    Fine. I bet that she’ll be the March Hare. Can’t have Helena straying too far from Depp’s side…

    No fair, I already made the Helena Bonham Carter quip!

      Oh, I plan on there being one in every Alice story until either the casting is announced, or the film is released without her…
