Robert Pattinson Joins Hope for Haiti Concert

Twilight star Robert Pattinson has signed on as a presenter for the Hope for Haiti concert to raise funds for the survivors of the 7.0 Haiti earthquake last week.

The Hope for Haiti telethon, organized by Hollywood star George Clooney, will air live on nearly all major television networks on Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. central time. Networks airing the concert include ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, CNN, HBO and MTV.

Haitian-born singer Wyclef Jean will co-host the show from New York, with George Clooney presenting from Los Angeles. CNN’s Anderson Cooper will broadcast live from Haiti during the event. Twilight star Robert Pattinson has signed on to present from London.

Even Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt will be tossing the gauntlet aside to help Haiti. Both have signed on as presenters for the Hope for Haiti concert, though we’re sure they probably won’t get within a mile of each other if at all possible.

Concert organizers are reportedly still trying to snag the rest of the Twilight trio – Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner – to boost young viewership. Oprah Winfrey and Angelina Jolie are also reportedly on the wish list to participate in the show, according to E! Online.

New Blood for Twilight: Actor Jack Huston Cast for Eclipse

Actor Jack Huston has been tapped as the newest member of the Twilight film family. Huston will play Royce King II, the former human fiancé of vampire Rosalie Cullen (Nikki Reed).


Jack Huston, nephew of Angelica Huston and grandson of director John Huston, has signed on to join the Twilight series in the upcoming third film, Eclipse.

Huston joins other new Twilight cast members Jodelle Ferland, Xavier Samuel and Bryce Dallas Howard – who will replace Rachelle Lefevre as Victoria in the third film of the series, much to the dismay of many Twilight fans. Huston will also be appearing in the new witchy ABC series Eastwick.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse starts filming August 17 in Vancouver. The film is slated for release in June of 2010.

You can watch 14 seconds of Twilight Saga: New Moon with its new trailer which was just released.
