Actor Michael Sheen is a pure chameleon. First he’s Tony Blair, then David Frost and now…himself!

Sheen and various other Brits showed up en masse to celebrate BAFTA LA’s annual (and the eighth year running) Tea Party last Saturday on the eve of the Primetime Emmy Awards.

There were numerous other non-Brits in attendance, including Glenn Close and Aussie co-star Rose Byrne, Evan Handler and Madeline Zima, nominee Jesse Tyler Ferguson (“Modern Family” aka the winner of Best Comedy Series) Cherry Jones (of the now defunct “24”) and Shohreh Aghdashloo, Anna Kendrick, Julia Ormond (who won last night for HBO’s “Temple Grandin”; “CSI: Miami’s” Eva La Rue, “90210’s” Jessica Lowndes.
