Michael Sheen talks about being cut from ‘Finding Dory’

Pixar’s Finding Dory will have one less star than originally predicted as Michael Sheen’s role has been cut from the upcoming Pixar film, leaving the Masters of Sex star “very sad.”

Speaking at Into Film 2016, he told Magic Radio: “I got a phone call saying I’m not in that (Finding Dory) any more, they cut me out.

“Unbelievable. I was very sad, I was such a fan of Finding Nemo, but that’s the way it goes, especially with animated films, you never know what’s going to make it to the final cut.

“It’s always a good thing to remember – you can always end up on the cutting room floor.”

The Golden Globe winner was quiet on details, not revealing the character he was playing in the new film centering on the amnesiac blue tang Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) on her mission to find her long-lost mother and father.

Disney fans shouldn’t pout as Sheen will still reprise his role as The White Rabbit in James Bobin’s Alice Through The Looking Glass, alongside a voice cast that includes Stephen Fry, Dame Barbara Windsor and the late Alan Rickman.

Idris Elba and Dominic West will also be voicing characters in the film, although their characters have also yet to be revealed.
