VOLTURI CASTING: Jamie Campbell-Bower is CAIUS!

(Flock of Seagulls, anyone?)

BBC NEWS REPORTS:

British actor Jamie Campbell-Bower has revealed he will play Volturi leader Caius in The Twilight Saga: New Moon.

The 20-year-old, who has appeared in RockNRolla and Sweeney Todd, told the BBC news website that taking part in the vampire series was "very exciting".

"You're the first people I've told" he said. "Shooting has already started, and I'm going over in June."

The film, due for release in November, is the second adaptation from author Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series.

The role of Caius is key to the plot of New Moon. He forms part of the triumvirate leading the Italian based coven of vampires called the Volturi.

Jamie also reveals the following:

Campbell-Bower confessed he was not previously aware of the character: "I hadn't read the books before. But it's a great thing to be a part of, and it did very well last year."

*************

Campbell-Bower teased: "I do know who else will be in it - but I can't tell you, unfortunately.

"But go online and have a look at the rumours," he said, then added: "They're all false. You're putting me in a terrible situation."

Holy Shizz! Read the rest here.

And, thanks to Jamie Campbell Bower Online, we have these pics to view:

  1. I'm a little speechless. He looks nothing like what I thought Caius would look like. The three brothers should have a bit of an older look shouldn't they? Well, maybe they'll age his face a bit...I just don't know I guess!
    By the way Twicrack, I voted for you for the "dazzle awards." I adore reading your blog! :)

  2. The annoyingly high-pitched dude from Sweeney Todd?! Huh... I can see it I guess but... huh!
    Go English boy, go!

  3. Vampires do not age, so he would still look like a young boy if that is when he was turned....
    The only part I am interested to see will be how they make his skin look transparent!!
    I think he is perfect, just edgy enough to play the part.


    GOOD WORK

  12. He is extremely....ummm yeah haha
    but he looked great in Sweeney Todd!
    but this is how I kinda pictured Ciaus
    Except a little older looking....like in his 30s or 40s or something
    I guess he's good enough though
    I wonder who they'll choose for the rest of the Volturi.......

    Honestly, I don`t like him at all, he doesn`t look preaty, as the vampires supposet to... And I`m total disappointed cause Ben Barnes ain`t get any part in Twilight saga, he would be better than any of this guys...

  15. Omg! I remember him from Sweeney Todd. Plus he's really down to earth. I hope he can work the role to his advantage. Have you seen how blonde his hair is in his Volturi photo with him, Aro, and Alec? And how straight it is? I have never seen hair cut that straight. Seriously, it's like scary straight! Maybe it's just me...
