New Moon Casts Caius

From EW.com:

British actor Jamie Campbell-Bower has been cast as Volturi leader Caius in the Twilight sequel New Moon. The 20-year-old Taylor Hanson-lookalike, whose credits include RocknRolla and Sweeney Todd, tells BBC News that he will head to the set in June. "I do know who else will be in it -- but I can't tell you, unfortunately," he said. "But go online and have a look at the rumors.... They're all false. You're putting me in a terrible situation."

I pictured the Volturi as being older, but the books never said how old they were when they changed, right? just says that they were brittle and thousands of years old in vampire time. So what do you think? Personally, I think he's pretty good-looking ~ and it definitely looks like he can play creepy!!!!

I don't know how his acting is but he looks ok. Hopefully they can make him look unhealthy.

Yeah, I thought all of the Volturi would look older than that. If they can make him look icky, then I guess it works. We'll see...

hmm...I was picturing someone like Bill Nighy. He was awesome in Underworld. Love this blog btw I check it compulsively every day!

I was picturing them older too. I think he might be okay though it seems weird that he is so young but also a king of sorts. I was envisioning Crispin Glover for sure as one of the volturri, and the rest of course around the same age.

Vampire always look young don't they? He might be good in the part. He's kinda cute looking.

Yeah.. he looks good for the role, though I imagined someone older .. that pic he has with J.Depp reminds me of the "chalky" faces the volturi should have .. Johny Depp would be a good choice for Marcus i guess ... but I don't know ... they might cast someone younger ..

i also check this blog every day.. several times ..

I definitely pictured the main Volturi at least in their 40s, maybe 50s. Wouldn't it be cool if they actually used some really famous actors for those? Of course, they won't, but it would have been interesting... I am very surprised by this actor's age though.

I wonder how much of this movie will be different from what I had envisioned? I read all four books only after I watched the first movie, so I already had the main characters' faces in my head as I was reading. This one will be different. We'll see...

And yes, I do check your blog every day. Great job!

i dunno how the Volturi looked when they were turned, i thought of them as middle-aged men. and i saw Jamie Campbell-Bower in Sweeney Todd and he has a lovely singing voice (look up Sweeney's OST 'Johanna' on YouTude)...

and he acted beside Johnny-myboyfriend-Depp! he'll do just fine as Caius,

I too pictured the Volturi leaders older than this.

I guess he'll do alright...the pic from 'Sweeney Todd' makes him look a little bit creepier.

To me, he's kinda girly. :) Not quite fierce enough to be Volturi, but we'll see!
