Tony Blair has been cast in the upcoming biopic about actor-turned-activist Michael Sheen, it has been announced.

Sheen has recently decided to leave his Hollywood career behind to fight against “career politicians” running such communities as his hometown of Port Talbot, Wales.

Blair was torn between continuing his charity work in the Middle East and taking the starring role, but decided that portraying Sheen’s political struggle would be the more ethical decision.

“There is never an excuse to not speak up for what you think is right.”
