Today the Walt Disney Twitter account confirmed the villainous Tron Legacy casting rumor is true regarding Michael Sheen.
@MSheenOnline Yes, Michael Sheen will have a role in Tron Legacy!

After hearing and seeing what they are going to do with this movie at Comic-Con, I couldn't be more excited to see this thing brought to life. The disc wars are going to be insane looking!
