TRON: Legacy is almost upon us, just about a week away. We've been showing you a variety of clips from the film to whet your appetite, and today we have yet another. Among the eclectic cast is the great Michael Sheen, playing a character named "Castor" who Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) meets on the grid. I've interviewed Sheen before, a few years back when he did THE QUEEN with Helen Mirren. Perhaps the coolest thing about him being in TRON: Legacy is that he genuinely likes geek culture, and is honestly stoked about being a part of the popular Walt Disney franchise. He's one of the few celebrities that was brave enough to walk the floor at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. Also look for the beautiful Beau Garrett in this clip, lurking in the background... and of course a brief shot of Daft Punk.
