Some actors would make deals with the devil for Jamie Campbell Bower's resume. In only five years of theatrical work, the 22-year-old Englishman has already played bit parts in both the "Harry Potter" and the "Twilight" sagas (as wizard Gellert Grindelwald and vampire Caius, respectively), and is set to star as the lead in "The Mortal Instruments" series, which very well could be the next teen movie phenomenon.
But who is this guy, and why should you know who he is?
1. He's part of a young brigade of Brits invading Hollywood. Seriously, there's a major influx of talent crossing the pond, and Campbell Bower is near the top of the list. His first big-screen role was opposite Johnny Depp as Anthony, the lovestruck sailor with a beautiful voice in Tim Burton's "Sweeney Todd." Since then he's racked up plum parts in the "Potter" and "Twilight" as well as two British indies, »

What do you do after you play Snow White? Go back to school, apparently.
The star of director Tarsem Singh's still-untitled "Snow White" project (why not just call it "Snow White" at this point?) has responded "Here!" to the attendance call of the new indie comedy, "The English Teacher," according to Deadline.
"The English Teacher" stars Julianne Moore as a beloved high school English teacher whose repressed personal life contrasts wildly with the passion she brings to the classroom. When a former student (Michael Angarano) returns home after failing as a playwright in New York City, she encourages him to mount his unproduced script at the school, which creates all sorts of drama -- and not just on the stage.
Collins will be playing a student who clashes with the teacher (but who, we're assuming, will probably end up playing the lead role in the play). The cast also includes Greg Kinnear (as, »

If things go according to plan, you'll be hearing the name Lily Collins more in the future. The actress was hand picked by Tarsem to lead his forthcoming (and still annoyingly untitled) Snow White movie and the plethora of stills for that film thus far have shown her to certainly look the part with ease. Collins was luckily left out of the critical carnage hauled at the Taylor Lautner vehicle "Abduction" last month and while she's still attached to another gestating tentpole in "The Mortal Instruments," the actress is wisely choosing a small scale indie for her next film. Collins… »
Fans of "The Mortal Instruments" have been waiting a long time for the film adaptation to arrive, but now there's good news: "Pretty Little Liars" writer I. Marlene King is hard at work on a new version of the script and she expects to have it done by the end of the month.
That's just one of the many juicy tidbits King dropped in a brand new interview with Hollywood Crush. Also revealed? What she thinks of stars Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower, what her favorite scene in the movie is and what, exactly, she talks to "Mortal Instruments" author Cassandra Clare about when they jam on the phone.
So head on over to Hollywood Crush and get pumped. Because ready or not, "The Mortal Instruments" is -- at last -- coming to life. »

Basking in Hollywood’s limelight definitely beats burning the midnight oil.
After years of preparation, a whole clique of freshman talents is primed to ace roles in this season's classiest movies. While each of these populars may already be stars, only one can claim the title of MTV's "New Class" President. Page though the yearbook and vote for the actor that you think schools the rest.
Role call: Jamie Campbell Bower is present and certain to sparkle in 2012's "The Mortal Instruments," though we’re sure co-star Lily Collins will abduct plenty of the hearts as well. Amy won Ricky's in ABC Family's "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" -- will Shailene Woodley rouse the chops to deliver on the big screen when "The Descendants" bows?

All week long, we're celebrating "The New Class," Hollywood's latest group of up-and-coming actors and actresses on the cusp of graduating to greatness. Tune in every day this week for exclusive interviews with these pending graduates and your chance to vote for the student body president - the one you think holds the brightest future in the industry.
Even nice girls have a mean streak. Take Lily Collins, for instance: the young actress, with credits like the heart-warming "The Blind Side" and the pulse-pounding "Abduction" to her name, is just as likely to bring you baked goods on a bad day as she is to kick bad guy butt when the need arises.
That's why we've bestowed Lily with the title of The Ass-Kicking Girl Next Door as part of the New Class, and we think her resume of past and future credits more than speaks to her sweetheart side and her badass streak. »

Jamie Campbell Bower has already been swept up in the frenzy of two of Hollywood's biggest franchises ever, "Twilight" and "Harry Potter." At 22, he's settled for nothing less than A-list flicks, including "Sweeney Todd," "RocknRolla" and playing King Arthur in the miniseries "Camelot."
Thanks to his gypsy style and diverse résumé that includes films both big and small, Bower has been named "Most Likely to Be the Next Johnny Depp" by MTV Movies' New Class Yearbook. And with one Tim Burton film already under his belt, Bower is well on his way to following in the footsteps of the man who's made pirates oh so cool.
But it's what Bower is set to do next that's »
Jamie Campbell Bower is best known in the Twilight world for his portrayal of cranky Volturi member Caius, and he’s also recently portrayed King Arthur in Camelot. Now however, Jamie is now about to enter a whole new world with his portrayal of Jace Wayland, a shadowhunter, in The Mortal Instruments. Here Jamie talks about [...]

While "The Hunger Games" hype has been consuming everyone's interest for the last few months, there's another high profile book series in the process of being adapted for the big screen -- and now MTV has an exclusive interview with "The Mortal Instruments" star Jamie Campbell Bower.
Bower is already pretty well known for his role as Caius in "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," but he's getting ready to hit it out of the park opposite Lily Collins as Jace Wayland in the adaptation of Cassandra Clare's bestselling book about teens who kill demons. "To give me that role is very humbling, and I'm really excited to start shooting it," Campbell Bower said.
So what else did he say? Head over to MTV to find out -- and watch as "The Mortal Instruments" takes the first step towards cinematic immortality. »

With "Harry Potter" coming to an end and "Twilight" approaching its final installment, our eyes are turning toward the next great young-adult-series-turned franchise, and we can't look away from "The Mortal Instruments" — especially now that star Lily Collins (who plays heroine Clary Fray) is dishing on her cohort, Jamie Campbell Bower (who will take on the role of Jace Wayland).
And something tells us Collins almost can't help herself when she peppers her interview with phrases like "everything was just so natural" and "he totally has the vibe going on." It sounds to us like this duo falls somewhere between match made in heaven and love at first sight… on the silver screen at least (for now). So check out the full story, courtesy of Hollywood Crush, and start placing your bets on whether these two will give Bella and Edward a run for their money mortality. »

The leaves are falling, school is starting, and Oscar season is on its way. You might think it's time to leave summer blockbusters behind, but this fall has something for everyone, from arty indies to 3-D extravaganzas.
Some of these folks, like Julianne Hough and Lea Michele, are familiar faces from the boob tube who are making the leap to movies; and others, like Noomi Rapace, are better known overseas. What they all have in common is that their breakthrough moments are upon us, as sure as school supplies.
Starring in: "Restless" (September 16)
So Fresh: When your dad is the late Dennis Hopper, you're pretty much born cool; but Henry's first film as a bona fide grown-up proves he's not messing around with any fluffy stuff. Hopper costars with Mia Wasikowska as Enoch and Annabel, two damaged lovebirds in this multiple hanky film from the esteemed Gus Van Sant. »

Danielle Shields looks at ten youngsters destined to be the next big thing...
With the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 bringing an end to the magical franchise, it is clear that just like its three main protagonists, thousands of children have grown up with the series and are now progressing into adulthood. Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson were a mere eleven years old when they were thrown head first into media chaos with being named the stars of the future. A decade later and it's now safe to say that the prediction has come true with one of the trio moving to stage, the other sticking with the big screen and the last moving into modelling. Now, it is time to meet the young actors and actresses who have taken their rightful place as the new rising stars. Some have already created a »
As you know, Jamie Campbell Bower ("Caius" in the Twilight Saga) has become something of a triple franchise threat. He's been in Twilight, and then he scored a small part in Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2, and now, he's going to be "Jace Wayland" in The Mortal Instruments series.
Speaking about his Deathly Hallows role to People Magazine, he explained:
"Yes, I’ve been involved in the final Harry Potters – a very, very minor role. Being English, and being an actor, I think they felt that they had to ask me, just because I don’t think you’re allowed to work unless you’ve been in Harry Potter. Not to say that Tom Hardy or Andrew Garfield, just because you haven’t been in Potter,
According to MTV, a rumor has been circulating that The Twilight Saga: Eclipse star Xavier Samuel ("Riley Biers") made an impression on The Mortal Instruments studio Screen Gems when auditioning for the part of "Jace Wayland" and it is now anticipated that he might still nab a role in the film adaptation of Cassandra Clare's series of the same name.
Of course, it was another Twilight star who was cast as "Jace": Jamie Campbell Bower.
Funny enough, Bower and Samuel never worked together on the set of The Twilight Saga (as Bower's character was not featured in Eclipse and Samuel's was exclusively in that film), but they did end up working together on Roland Emmerich's Anonymous (due in October).
Whether Samuel will actually land a role in The Mortal Instruments remains to be seen, b .. »
Would you sit around and play chess on your Honeymoon with your new vampire husband (especially if he looked like Robert Pattinson)? Okay, poke fun if you want, but that’s not all Bella and Edward Cullen will be doing on their vacation as newlyweds. I promise! We have photographic proof direct from the set of Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, thanks to THR. Hit the link to enjoy the dazzling slide show for yourselves, Twihards!
Other shots in the group include a scene with Aro, Volturi leader. Actor Michael Sheen revealed “Without giving too much away, there are things that stay very true to the book, but there are a couple of things that I think will draw gasps of breath from people.” Now that’s hot news! Furthermore, guess which evil vampire is in the shot with him! Its Jamie Campbell Bower’s character, Caius. Bower is soon to »

Last week we heard how author Cassandra Clare was absolutely thrilled by the casting of Jamie Campbell Bower (Caius in New Moon and Breaking Dawn) as Jace Wayland in The Mortal Instruments. Here Lily Collins, who will star as Clary Fray in the movie and Jamie’s leading lady, tells MTV how truly she excited she [...]

We’ve not had much news to report on The Mortal Instruments for a while now, since we heard that the production was in limbo, pending confirmation of Alex Pettyfer’s availability for the lead. Whether it’s because his Number Four was a bit of a Number Two, or because his Beastly proved just Ghastly, but Pettyfer seems to have been bypassed as a consideration and in his place one Jamie Campbell Bower has been cast as the lead.
For the uninitiated (including me), The Mortal Instruments is a series of novels by Cassandra Clare, about a heroine ClaryFray who has The Sight. She can see demons and Shadowhunters and one of these Shadowhunters is Jace Wayland, who helps Clary find her mother after she is abducted. We knew Lily Collins was set to play Clary Fray and now Mr Campbell Bower has apparently been cast as Jace Wayland. »
