NME reports that Michael will appear in the Manic Street Preachers‘ new videoclip for (It’s Not War) Just the End of Love due to be shot in early August.
The actor has portrayed Tony Blair in 2006 film The Queen and Brian Clough in 2009's The Damned United, and guest starred in the latest series of hit sitcom 30 Rock.
For his next role he is apparently set to portray Russian chess legend Garry Kasparov in the clip for the band's new single.
"It looks like Michael Sheen is gonna be in the video, which we're really thrilled about," Wire told NME. "We've tried to recreate the classic '70s chess match between Kasparov and [Bobby] Fischer. That's the kind of vibe behind it. It's real '70s Russia – just that idea of 'it's not war, just the end of love', I think a chess game really fits that."
