The eagerly awaited sequel to the 1982 sci-fi film Tron opens in UK cinemas today, with Welsh actor Michael Sheen adding a touch of glam rock style to the proceedings.

Tron: Legacy follows on from the original hit 80s film, which starred Jeff Bridges as Kevin Flynn, a computer hacker who was abducted into cyberspace and had to team up with security program Tron to defeat the villainous Master Control Program.

The sequel shows how Sam Flynn, the son of Bridges' character, looks into his father's disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world where his father has been living for 20 years.

Sheen plays the role of Castor, a flamboyant, eccentric nightclub owner. And as you can see from the photos, his Ziggy Stardust-esque appearance couldn't be further away from some of his previous roles as Tony Blair and David Frost.
