Hollywoodnews.com: Meet the newest member of the “Twilight” saga: Rami Malek.
With credits to his name that include HBO’s “The Pacific,” “24” and Ben Stiller’s “A Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian,” Malek will add the role of the Egyptian vampire Benjamin to his resume. ET Online reports that Malek said, “”I think it’s going to be great. It’s going to be super exciting, and I’m thrilled.”
Of course he is. He’s going to be plastered on the bedroom walls of teenage girls coast to coast come 2012, when part two of Bill Condon’s massive endeavor reaches theaters.
“Twilight” isn’t the only item on Malek’s list. He’ll also appear in Tom Hanks’ directorial effort “Larry Crowne,” which is due in theaters next year.
So yeah, it’s safe to say Malek is a star on the rise.
