  3. Brandi says:

    Wow, I totally pictured him as older…. But this is exciting!!! I wonder how he will look with all the makeup! He was great in Sweeny Todd, I have full faith in him!

  4. Marci (major obsessed) says:

    No he is way too young………..

  5. Camille says:

    Way, way, way to young!! Caius is supposed to have WHITE hair!

  6. Robby says:

    my first reaction was

    huh? O__o (since I imagined Cauis older)

    But overall, I’m very interested in how he looks like now, with all the make-up and hair πŸ™‚

  7. Erin(: says:

    Umm… I actually don’t know what to say.

  8. melanie says:

    i am in shock…i pictured caius MUCH older. but anyway….i am so excited!!!

  9. xanna says:

    uhhh…not how i pictured him. i always thought he was an older man

  10. jasper's girl says:

    he looks like he could play a good creepy/mean im excited!

  11. Samie says:

    thats kool i sure with the pale face and white hair he will look older…

  12. IHEARTSETH says:

    HA HA! You’re joking, right? This is precious! You have to be kidding me!

  13. Erin says:

    OMG he’s gorgeous lol =]

  14. Renata says:

    AWESOME!!!! OH god i cant wait!

  15. Jasmine says:

    Sweet! With all the makeup and hair he should look good!

    Jazz (Team Cullen!)

  16. The REAL Mrs. Edward Cullen says:

    Looks more like an Alec to me…

  17. Amanda says:

    see i think the problem is that we (or most of us) pictured the volturi as SUPER old but im thinking about it and it would make sense for them to be young, i mean, most of the vamps are, right?
    plus this guy’s a fantastic actor, he’ll be great!

  18. liz says:

    he’s nothing like i pictured him. i imagined him looking tougher and bigger

  19. Cedar says:

    I think that he could fit the roll. I think he looks old enough and his hair is ok though it isn’t the color i thought it would be but they can always dye it or something. Overall I think e will make a pretty good Caius I don’t no what everyone is so worried about.

  20. michelle says:

    I totally agree with you, “The REAL Mrs. Edward Cullen”. I inmediatley thought ITS ALEC, when I saw the picture.
    I love that actor, he was in Sweeney Todd too (remember him singing: i feel you, Johanna… haha)

  21. michelle says:

    PS: but, he will do a great job as Caius πŸ˜‰

  22. Amanda G says:

    Ugh…. I don’t like it! Nope, not right for the part.

  23. jcking78 says:

    i think he has great “creepy” potential. the vamps ARE old but only in years!! totally makes sense for them to look young.

  24. ANG says:

    i wonder why everyone imagins him as an old man. yes he is an old vampire, but as we know they dont age. and as for white hair, wigs and dye are amazing. i think he will do great

  25. Jess B says:

    My concern is what he said about starting filming in June. Is that enough time to get the film put together in time for the release date? By June last year Catherine was already editing. There was even a scene ready in time for the MTV movie awards. For a movie with a lot more effects to deal with, I’m concerned about there being enough time to make it truly decent.

  26. Eva says:

    Ummm BAD CHOICE!!!!!!!!! Caius is supposed to look older and have white hair! No offence but he isn’t that cute either. Maybe make up will help? I really hope he does a good job though.

  27. Sarah :) says:

    i kinda thought he would be older & italian….
    but you see when i read the books it’s hard for me to picture the character.
    It’s was only when twilight came out as a movie i pictured the characters like that.
    But i have to say another HOT british vampire on the way!! πŸ˜€

  28. Megan says:

    Wow.. all you people keep saying you pictured him much older but you gotta remember that they died young in age but they have an older look to them because of their ancient aura and wisdom. Plus, he doesn’t have any of the make-up on. Also, he is extremely hawt!!

  29. Megan says:

    also, Jess B they started filming in March.. Their probably just filming the Volterra scenes in June

  30. lizzie says:

    evry1 relax!!! we hav a caius he is a very good actor and no caius isnt old in age he is but not in looks as he is a vampire and they dont age. and megan is right there isnt really that many sscenes with the voultouri so dw there will be enuff time he might end up goin ova earlier as they sed they started filming earlier too every1 just go with the flow and i wanna see a demetri next!!! πŸ™‚

  31. Diane says:

    Ha, this movie is going to fail…..

  32. Shteff says:

    *shakes head*….no, he…he’s way to young!
    He was amazing in Sweeney todd, but that was as that young innocent lad who fell in love!

  33. im an alice says:

    umm idk i think he looks a little to young but idk they always seem to suprise me!

  34. Olivia says:


    I love him. i think he’ll do a great job!

  35. Tiffany C. says:

    AH! I’m soooo excited! THIS IS AMAZING!!!!! I CANNOT wait to see how he does!! YAY!!!!


  36. Lindsey says:

    Caius’ hair is so blonde thats its white… its not white form old age. Meyer never rally explained how lod they looked, so they could be very young, they just seem old to us because we know how that they’re thousands of years old. This guy will do fine especially after a hair dye and some makeup. Everybody needs to relax. They know what they’re doing.

  37. twihard23 says:

    I pictured Caius older but he is a vampire, so he was probably young like everyone else when he was turned. I think this guy will do great, he’s cute and has the “essence” of Caius.

  38. Hannah from ENGLAND! says:

    WHAT?????? He’s too young!!! Dont get me wrong he’s gorgeous, and im sure he’ll look very nice, but look too young!

  39. Laura says:

    I saw him in Sweeney Todd and He is an AWESOME actor! Love HIM!

  40. Twilight Geek Sam says:

    SWEENEY TODD!!! isnt caius older???

  41. Jackie says:

    how are they gonna make him an old man??

  42. Git 'r Done! (Amy) says:

    I don’t understand why everyone says Caius can’t look old. What if he was transformed when he was older??? Then, well, he’d look older!!! And I know the vampires don’t age, but really, 3000 year WOULD have an effect on you. Remember the Romanian vampires? They had the appearance of being around for a couple of millennia. I hope they do lots of make up and special effects on him! He’s not what I pictured either! I never had an actor in mind for Caius, but Aro in my head was the senator from Star Wars who is really the emperor (sorry, haven’t seen the movies in a LONG time) and Marcus is the king of the white city from LOTR who has the bloody fruit juice running down his chin when he eats. Haven’t seen those movies in a long time, too. I’ll be VERY disappointed if all the Volturi are cast that young. This director better start wowing me!

  43. olindaa :) says:

    i don’t think he would fit right
    the first time when i see Sweeney Todd
    i the first part.. i thought he was a women

  44. Jacob's Girl says:

    Hmm. Interesting. I think he is really cute and he can do a great job as Caius. I sorta pictured him differently but I know that in like three seconds all the teenage girls, including me, will have him up on our walls adoring him. lol. <3

    Jess B had it. screw the actor. (well, not exactly screw him. i mean, he’s important. but not as important as what he was saying.) if filming is still happening in June…when will it end? when will post start? i’m with ya, Jess. come on, Chris. come on.


  46. laCullensCantante says:

    umm… i thought he was gonna play alec i think hes way to young to play caius i mean robert pattinson is older than him i always pictured caius to have the age on his face even if he was turned at 20 its just a little weird for our caius to be younger than our edward idk

  47. Michele Celine says:

    Freeking awesome! Yeah I love him! I realllllllllllly liked him in Sweeney Todd! Super cool, now I’m flipping excited!

  48. avii says:

    awsome! i love him! this will be good!

    and i don’t understand why everybody thinks that he should look older. i mean he is an old vampire but still.. he doesn’t age…
