Robert Pattinson joins George Clooney for Telethon to benefit Haiti

The Twilight Saga star Robert Pattinson will appear in the Hope for Haiti Telethon that actor George Clooney and musician Wyclef Jean have been organizing. Jean, a native of Haiti, has been working hard to line up celebrities for the telethon which will air Friday, January 22nd at 8:00 p.m. TOMORROW NIGHT!

According to MTV:

Jean, a native of Haiti, George Clooney and CNN's Anderson Cooper will appear on the show, which will be broadcast from New York, London, Los Angeles and Haiti and feature more than 100 of the biggest names in film, television and music providing testimonials and answering phones. The two-hour program will air commercial-free across ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CNN, BET, the CW, HBO, MTV, VH1 and CMT on Friday at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The special will also air on PBS, TNT, Showtime, Comedy Central, Bravo, E!

It will also air internationally on BET International, CNN International, National Geographic and MTV Networks International, available in 640 million homes worldwide. "Hope for Haiti" will be the first U.S.-based telethon airing on MTV in China. Facebook and Twitter are the official social media partners who will help to drive donations and tune-in to the telethon.

Apparently, George Clooney put the word out that he was hoping Pattinson would lend his Twilight Saga celebrity to raise money for the people of Haiti when he reached out to the Hollywood community for help in this worthy cause. Pattinson is the sole presenter from the London part, with a musical performance that features a collaboration between U2's Bono and The Edge with Jay-Z and Rihanna. The entire show will feature celebrity performers in the hundreds, including Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Shakira, Bruce Springsteen, Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt, Anna Kendrick, Zac Efron, Bradley Cooper, Chris Pine, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Colin Farrell, Gabby Sidibe and Emily Blunt, among others.

Vampire Diaries' Spoilers: What's coming!

This is it! This week, Vampire Diaries returns to it's Thursday night time slot at 8:00 pm with new episodes. According to an article in the Los Angeles Times, here's a rundown of some things to come before the season ends...

  • When we left things in the fall, Elena (Nina Dobrev) took off her vervain necklace, which protects her from Damon’s mind control. So what does this mean for Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena?
    “Now that the necklace is off, she’s very vulnerable,” said executive producer Kevin Williamson. “They will have some alone time. There’s no Stefan, so we’re going to explore what their relationship is like without him.”

    But if you're secretly hoping for a Damon and Elena romance, too bad. It's not likely anytime soon. Damon will lock lips with Nina Dobrev ... but she’ll be portraying Katherine.
  • Still think there’s a chance Vicki (Kayla Ewell) might rise from the dead? … well, there’s a better chance that vampires actually exist. Vicki is gone for good -- something both Matt and Jeremy will grapple with. Jeremy (Steven McQueen) will struggle as he figures out the details surrounding her murder.

  • If the close-knit bond between Damon and Stefan (Paul Wesley) highlighted in “Lost Girls” made you long for more brotherly love … you’ll get your wish. The betrayal aspect of their relationship is explored -- “There’s a certain level of trust that has been lost between these two brothers,” Williamson said. ”As the season progresses, their ‘flip-flop’ dynamic will be put to the test and Damon will finally have to "step up and act like a big brother.”
  • And Elena and Bonnie’s relationship will be "tested” now that Bonnie (Katerina Graham) is aware that Damon and Stefan are vampires. Will Bonnie be “down with [vampires] or is she going to have a problem with it?”
