According to a recent article by the BBC, Michael Sheen, along with fellow Welsh actor Jonathan Pryce, have taken on new roles chairing the institution.
Their roles involve them representing the College at home and abroad. Michael Sheen recently represented the college during the unveiling of a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame for Richard Burton.
Admission, the film starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, has a DVD/Bluray release date of July 9th for US. The film features a brief appearance from Michael Sheen as Fey’s character’s boyfriend, Mark.

Although there has not been any news of a theatrical release of this film in the US, and there is unlikely to be one due to its poor performance in the US box office, it does look like there will be a European release on DVD/Bluray, but the date is not available yet.
Michael Sheen visited the set of new TV show Da Vinci’s Demons last week. The show is a joint Starz and BBC Worldwide production, and filmed in Bay Studios in Fabian Way, Port Talbot.
Michael said: “It was so great to see such amazing work happening so close to home for me. So many local people enjoying being a part of it — including my dad! Edward Thomas (Production Designer) and his team have completely transformed an abandoned area into a hive of creativity and cutting-edge technology.”
LA based Executive Producer, Julie Gardner, formerly of the Neath Port Talbot area, who went to college with Michael Sheen has said she had dinner with Michael and Ed Thomas in LA. When asked by the South Wales Evening Post whether there would be a part in the show for Michael, she replied: “Never say never”.
