Welcome to the Volturi tribe, Jamie Campbell-Bower.

20-year-old Jamie has been added to phenomenon New Moon’s fray, cast as Volturi head Caius.

“Shooting has already started, and I’m going over in June,” Campbell-Bower tells the BBC.

“I haven’t read the books before. But it’s a great thing to be a part of, and it did very well last year.”

You don’t say!

You might recognize Jamie from his turn alongside Johnny Depp in Sweeney Todd or in Guy Ritchie’s RocknRolla.

And is he in for the same overwhelming fan response lavished upon one Robert Pattinson?

“I doubt I’ll get the same sort of adulation as Robert – but it’s always nice when people recognize you for your work.”

Jamie is joined by already-announced Volturi Dakota Fanning, and will star alongside returning Twilight members Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Nikki Reed.

What do you think of the addition? Will Jamie make a sufficient Caius?
