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.

omg! thats the egyptian guy from night at the museum!! hahahaha

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

He was so good in The Pacific… very compelling and a little bit off beat.

He is ADORABLE! Love love love the way he speaks. Great actor.

FOR REAL?? @ 09/01/2010 at 4:10 pm

WTF WHY IS HE LINKING HIMSELF TO THAT SH*T FEST?!

I’m indifferent to Twilight, but I noticed how hot Rami Malek was in Night at the Museum! And he’s a twin!!!

That’s just improbable.

yaaay,,he’s now vampire,,
