Another Vampire for New Moon’s Volturi Clan

Look at me, using words like “Volturi clan” like I know what I’m talking about. I don’t, of course, but apparently the Volturi clan are a bunch of olden vampires in Stephenie Meyers’ “Twilight” books, and they are featured prominently in the next movie, “New Moon”. The last we heard, Dakota Fanning was already cast as one of the Volturi, and now actor Jamie Campbell-Bower has joined her.

From the BBC:

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.”

So the 20-year old is going to play the leader of a vampire clan? One that includes 15-year old Dakota Fanning? Man, I don’t know whether to run away if these guys come after me, or grab a stick and start yelling at them to “Get off my lawn!”

Oh who am I kidding. It’s definitely the latter.
