Last week Summit announced the complete cast for New Moon. Since many of the additions for the Twilight sequel are relatively unknown actors -- a practice the studio repeated from Twilight -- we put together a look at the new faces and their credentials.
The guide for the new vampire cast follows. You can find the new wolf pack guide here. And if you're looking for details about the original actors (and ongoing, rest assured Taylor Lautner fans), see our Meet the Cast of Twilight. What do you think of these casting choices? Be sure to drop us a comment below.
Michael Sheen as Aro
Where you've seen him: As werewolf Lucian in the Underworld movies, as British prime minister Tony Blair in The Queen, and as David Frost in Frost/Nixon.
In New Moon: Aro is the overall leader of the Volturi clan and can read someone's thoughts with a single touch. He was a close friend of Carlisle Cullen, and is very interested in Edward and his vampire talents. He's also a big fan of human blood and doesn't understand the Cullen's vegetarianism.
Verdict: He's got the ability, the pale skin, and more than enough experience with supernatural creatures. Well done, Chris Weitz.
Charlie Bewley as Demetri
Where you've seen him: Nowhere. He's a mystery!
In New Moon: Demetri is a well-spoken member of the Volturi guard and has the ability to track people through their thoughts.
Verdict: We're betting the female fans will love him, with his Robert Pattinson hair and British good looks. So, who's on Team Demetri?
Jamie Campbell Bower as Caius
Where you've seen him: As Anthony in Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street and in RocknRolla. He's also rumored to be starring in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
In New Moon: Caius is one of three Volturi leaders, alongside Aro and Marcus, and is the more stubborn of the group. He has a fear of werewolves, and isn't too keen on Bella and Edward either.
Verdict: He's quite creepy looking, which should suit Caius well. We're wondering if he's too young for the role, though he does have the required shoulder-length hair. We're not too sure about translucent onion skin, though.
Daniel Cudmore as Felix
Where you've seen him: As mutant Colossus in X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand.
In New Moon: Part of the Volturi guard, Felix is violent, tall, and very strong. He has no known power and seems to hate Edward Cullen with an unexplained passion.
Verdict: He's chunky and built like a football player. Hello, Felix!
Christopher Heyerdahl as Marcus
Where you've seen him: In Smallville, Stargate: Atlantis, and Supernatural. This guy likes his TV!
In New Moon: Marcus can read relationships, which is handy when you're a leader of an ancient vampire clan. Nothing gets past him.
Verdict: Mean-looking and intimidating, he'll be great as bored, menacing Marcus.
Dakota Fanning as Jane
Where you've seen her: Alongside Tom Cruise in War of the Worlds, in Steven Spielberg's mini-series Taken, and most recently in the sci-fi movie Push.
In New Moon: Child-like in appearance, Jane is an especially vicious vampire who was turned at a young age. She mentally tortures people with her power, much to the enjoyment of twin brother, Alec. Bella is immune to her powers, which irks Jane to no end.
Verdict: A brilliant choice! Fanning has the young looks and, with her years of acting experience, should easily bring Jane to life.
Cameron Bright as Alec
Where you've seen him: In X-Men: The Last Stand, an episode of The 4400, and as Adam in An American Affair.
In New Moon: Alec is Jane's twin and can control people's senses. Stay well away from him if you don't want to suddenly find yourself blind, deaf, or missing the sense of smell.
Verdict: Young enough for the role, with all the right looks for Alec. With a little makeup and styling, Bright and Fanning could easily pass for evil twins.
Noot Seear as Heidi
Where you've seen her: Modeling for Armani, Calvin Klein, and Chanel, as well as for magazines such as Elle and Vanity Fair.
In New Moon: Heidi acts as bait for the Volturi, rounding up humans for them to eat. She's described as statuesque, and is said to possess an exceptional beauty.
Verdict: Her character (along with Rosalie) is probably as close to a supermodel as you'll find in The Twilight Saga. We're sure Seear's previous modeling career will assist her with the role -- but will it help with her acting?
Justine Wachsberger as Gianna (Unconfirmed)
Where you've seen her: With a blink-and-you'll-miss-it part in 2004's First Daughter.
In New Moon: Gianna is a human secretary, of sorts. She works for the Volturi and hopes that one day they'll turn her into a vampire. The Cullens can't stand her, and think it's most likely she'll just end up dead.
Verdict: As long as she can convincingly say a few lines, she'll be fine.
