British actor Michael Sheen is best known to audiences on this side of the pond for portraying two high profile real-life characters (former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair in The Queen and self-promoting talk show host David Frost in Frost/Nixon) on the big screen. So one would think that getting to play a fictional character would be a relief.
