Priest is a great vampire movie screen gem because of the outstanding acting performances by Ben Kingsley and Jennifer Aniston.

It was not surprising though when we learned that Michael Fassbender will be playing the priest role in the upcoming sequel to Twilight. Although this is a confirmed fact it was a long-running speculation. Michael Fassbender will play Edward Cullen, the vampire love interest of Bella Swan in the Twilight movies. His contribution is particularly meaningful because of his long-time association with the role of the vampire. The role of a vampire performed by an actor already established in the world of Hollywood is a major coup for Twilight fans everywhere.
