Paul Bettany Joins Da Vinci Code

The last piece of the "Da Vinci Code" casting puzzle has snapped into place.

Variety says Paul Bettany ("Wimbledon") will play Silas, the albino religious fanatic/henchman.

Bettany's casting solidifies the film's major roles. Now, all that stands between the movie and ungodly box office receipts is the actual filming, which is scheduled to begin next month.

"The Da Vinci Code" will be released May 19, 2006. For more on this project visit our "Da Vinci Code" spotlight page. -- Mac Slocum
