Briefly: We haven’t riled anyone with Twilight news in a few minutes, so here’s a brief update. At the Emmy Awards the other night, Rami Malek from The Pacific spilled that he’ll appear in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn as Benjamin, one of the Egyptian Coven of vampires. Wait, that’s actually pretty good news!
As I understand it, Malek will only appear in the second of the two Breaking Dawn films, and while his role may be small, he might get to have some explosive effects around him. As one rundown of the coven explains, “Benjamin, the mate of Tia, has a high awareness of what is right and wrong, and his special ability is to control the elements of nature, air, earth, fire, and water. Benjamin’s ability is unique in that it involves physical manipulation, as opposed to illusions of the mind.” [EW]
