    Wow! Wouldn't it look weird if Caius, Marcus, and Aro are of different ages?

    Weird, Jamie Campbell Bower is significantly younger than the actors playing Marcus and Aro. I guess they can fake it by make-up, but it's just... weird. *shrug*

  3. Jei said...
     

    I'm really curious. Yeah, even with the fake make up, it's hard to imagine how it will turn up. Maybe Bower will play it like a teenaged vampire who always wants some vampire action... or not. Oh well.

    Nice casting though. Daniel Cudmore is, I think, perfect to play Felix. And Cameron Bright too.

    they would really look like twins

    power house cast for the volturri -not minding the age of Jaime Campbell at all.

    acting-wise those who appeared in Twilight will be put to some test - if they can keep up with the new ones or they will just fade in the background (will keep an eye on KStewart :P)

    looking forward for it :)

    Umm...seems I only recognize Michael Sheen and Graham Greene from that hopefully final list. Ok, Dakota I know and like. Michael Sheen was an awesome lycan in both Underworld movies. Interesting how he'll play Aro.
