During their Emmy Awards party, Entertainment Tonight let loose that Rami Malek (he played Ankmenrah In both Night at the Museum films) has joined the cast of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn as the vampire Benjamin, who’s part of an Egyptian coven that assist the Cullens by acting as witnesses for them during a key part in the movie. Malek will most likely be joined by several other vampires who still need to be cast, including more Egyptians, Romanians, Irish, Amazonians and nomads.
There are more Egyptian vampires to come, believe it or not. Amun, Kebi and Tia, the other members of Benjamin’s family, are yet to be cast.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I will arrive in theaters on November 18th, 2011, with part two hitting theaters on November 16th, 2012. What do you think about the casting, and which new character are you looking forward to seeing on screen for the first time?
