Now that Tony Hayward, affectionately known as the “most hated man in America,” has been removed from his post of Chief Executive of BP and been handed a non-executive director position at BP’s Russian joint venture, TNK-BP, he’s far enough away out of the media spotlight for film executives and scribes to rustle up some magic about the man and the PR nightmare that is Tony Howard. And who better to play him than chameleon-like British actor, Michael Sheen. Sheen has been fortunate in his acting career to resemble an eclectic bunch of British movers and shakers. He’s played football manager Brian Clough, journalist David Frost and the British Prime Minister Tony Blair, not once but three times.
