Rami Malek Joins the Cast of 'Breaking Dawn'

Rami Malek is the newest addition to the cast of the highly anticipated The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2!

The 29-year-old The Pacific actor is looking forward to working with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. He said, “I think it’s going to be great. It’s going to be super exciting and I’m thrilled.”

Rami will play Benjamin, a member of the Egyptian coven, who comes to help Bella and the Cullens in the fight against the Volturi.

    What’s stupid is that there’s never actually a fight. One of the most boring non-eventful endings ever.
