British actor Jamie Campbell-Bower Cast As Volturi's Caius

Jamie in Sweeney Todd (I couldn't resist the pic with Johnny Depp in it.)

Brittish actor, Jamie Campbell-Bower, tells BBC News that he has been cast as the Volturi leader Caius.

"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."

He he had not previously read the books & wasn't aware of the character but he knew that the Twilight movie was a big success. He also says this about the cast:

"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."

He looks 12! I pictured the Volturi to be a lot older - many of us agree we thought they were at least like Carlisle's age. He's all wrong!

He is way too young to play Caius! What are they thinking!!

At first seeing him, I can't get the image of Anthony from Sweeney Todd out of my head. It's impossible. I just hear him singing "Johanna" and I am not fond of this.

However, I saw that the article says he was in RockNRolla, which I saw, and I have no idea who he played. That leaves me thinking that he must be a pretty versatile actor that I didn't notice his voice/face. So, I'm putting faith in the casting and am letting it slide. :)

I definitely was NOT going to go see New Moon but when I heard that Jaime was going to be playing Caius, I freaked out. Now I'm only going to see him!
