2012 Year in Review: Favorite Male Movie Performances
Michael Sheen, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2
Although the Twilight films are seldom celebrated for distinctive acting, Michael Sheen contributes a reliably unique – and interesting – turn as Aro, the leader of the villainous Volturi. In Breaking Dawn – Part 2, he gets to showcase his best silent-film theatrics as he is startled into feeling something after seeing that Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward’s (Robert Pattinson) daughter Renesmee is a creature unlike any he’s ever encountered. The rest of the movie (and the franchise) may be forgettable, but his turn as the heavy, you’ll remember.
