Jamie Campbell Bower Is Getting Angry!

Watch out, world; Jamie Campbell Bower has a chip on his shoulder! At least on the big screen.

The Harry Potter actor—who plays Volturi leader Caius in the upcoming Twilight sequel New Moon—tells MTV that he'll be putting a particularly surly spin on his character.

"[New Moon director Chris Weitz] gave us a lot of freedom," Bower recalls. "We sat down prior to it and just bounced ideas around. The backstory for Caius is already there, as it is for the Volturi. It's all fairly self-explanatory. We sat down and I said, 'I think he's got this deep-rooted anger. He doesn't have a power, and he's pretty pissed off about that, because the rest of them have powers.' And then, once we got on set, he was just like, 'Go for it.' We'd do a couple of takes of the same thing, and then we'd change it up and I'd do something crazy."

Like, what kind of crazy things?

"We'd do different accents, different styles," Bower notes. "There would be one that would be very introverted, and then there would be another one that would be completely theatrical. It was good fun."

Sounds like a wacky time.

    He looks too young to play Caius. Maybe after all the make-up and clothes...

    You've got to be kidding me if you do not know who Caius is! I believe he will play a pretty good Grindlewald in HP7. I'm just hoping they don't massacre part 7 like they did part 6. I just re-read HBP and I can't believe how much important info they left out. too much Won-Won and not enough info on Horcrux, Riddle or Snape (oooh Severus). If you were just watching the films and have never read the books you'd be somewhat lost. 0_o

    I know who he plays in twilight...I've read the books, but I don't remember a Caius at all. But he's NOT how I pictured young Grindlewald. He looks like he's 12 years old and he's not menacing or intriguing enough. Grindlewald is supposed to be the man that Dumbledore was infatuated with...I just don't see Jamie doing that role justice, but I guess I will just have to wait and see. how the hell do you not know who caius if you read the books! crazy crazy crazy! i hate caius!
