If you don't know who Rami Malek is, you're about to. The California native has been cast as Benjamin in the second Breaking Dawn film and is already causing tons of buzz in Hollywood.
If you've read Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series, you know that Rami's character is an Egyptian vampire with the ability to control the four elements with his mind. "I think it's going to be great," the actor told ET at the Emmys. "It's going to be super exciting and I'm thrilled."
This isn't the first time the 29-year-old's Egyptian heritage helped him land a huge role. Rami played the pharaoh Ahkmenrah in both 'Night at the Museum' and 'Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.'
With many other film and TV credits under his belt, the L.A. resident is sure to bring a whole new dimension to the final installment of the vampire series.
We expect to hear about more Breaking Dawn cast additions in the next few months, so stay tuned. Do you think director Bill Condon made the right choice in picking Rami to play the role of Benjamin? If not, who would you have picked instead? %Poll-52213%
