With Dakota Fanning tapped for the role of Volturi vampire Jane in Twilight sequel New Moon, the casting of Alec, Jane's undead twin brother, is director Chris Weitz's next challenge.

Compared to Jane, "his hair was darker, and his lips were not as full, but he was just as lovely," writes author Stephenie Meyer of Alec in New Moon.

Possessing the ability to numb a victim's senses, quiet but deadly Alec could be well-played by Tom Felton, best known as Harry Potter's foe Draco Malfoy. Some other suggestions? High School Musical's Lucas Grabeel could follow his serious turn in Milk with an even darker one as the bloodsucker. And French actor Gaspard Ulliel of Hannibal Rising would bring a terrifying pedigree to the character, while Freddie Highmore, who sweetly stole scenes in Willy Wonka and Finding Neverland, could bring out his bad side.

As two of the Volturi's highest-ranking guards, Alec and Jane are fearsome foes of immortal Edward and his human love Bella, to be played again in New Moon by Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

Which rising star do you think can best embody the evil Alec?
