It seems like it has been forever since we had any news about TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN. For a while there, we were getting news updates every other day. Today we get a bit of casting news in that one of the stars of the HBO series ‘The Pacific’ is going to be starring in the final chapter(s) of the Twilight Saga. Rami Malek is all set to play the vampire Benjamin in the final film. Benjamin is an Egyptian vampire that serves as a witness for the Cullens. I haven’t read the books, so I have absolutely no idea what any of that means. This is not the first time Malek has played an Egyptian; he also played Ahkmenrah in NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM 2. Rami Malek is also set to have a part in the upcoming Tom Hanks’ film LARRY CROWNE.
As you know, the final two films will be directed by Bill Condon and will star Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Jackson Rathbone, Ashley Greene, Taylor Lautner, Kellan Lutz, Dakota Fanning and Nikki Reed.
