Rob and his mom, Clare, have both designed balloons for the charity PACT (Parents and Abducted Children Together). The charity will be auctioning off the ballons for the marking of International Missing Children's day;
'PACT is marking International Missing Children's Day 2010 with a "balloon launch" like none you've ever seen! Balloons are the official symbols of International Missing Children's Day. Countries around the world have released balloons for years on this day to commemorate all the children still missing and to celebrate those who've been safely returned home. This year, PACT has a slightly different balloon launch in mind; Evan Cheng, head illustrator for Sesame Street, has designed a balloon card for us to send to celebrities worldwide as an inspirational canvas. We've invited them to make their creative marks on our balloons in any way they choose. On International Missing Children's Day, 25 May, we will launch PACT with STARS, a combined live and eBay auction of these unique works of art from some of the most well-known names in the world'
You can bid on the balloons here and find out more about this charity's great work here. Hopefully they make lots of money for a great cause!

According to THR;
'Nina Dobrev, star of CW’s “The Vampire Diaries,” has joined the cast of “Deathgames,” MPCA’s indie action movie starring Kellan Lutz and Samuel L. Jackson.
James Remar, who plays Dexter's father on Showtime's "Dexter,” and Derek Mears, who inhabited Jason Vorhees in the recent ”Friday the 13th,” also have been cast in the movie, which is shooting in Louisiana.
The story centers on a young man (Lutz) who is kidnapped and forced into the savage world of a modern gladiator arena, where men fight to the death for entertainment of the online masses in games orchestrated by Jackson.
Nikki Reed is on the cover of this month's 'Saturday Night' magazine. In the interview she admits
' how difficult it can be to live up to other’s expectations of beauty. “It opened up all these questions about what beauty is. It really stressed me out for a long time. It made me more aware of my insecurity." Through the process she’s learned to accept her flaws and has realized that “we’re all beautiful in a different way.'
She also talked about Rosalie and what initially drew her to the character;
'I liked how honest she was. I liked how she was unwilling to stray from what she believed in and she would fight and speak her mind regardless of how controversial it was.'
It has been announced that Kristen's new movie, the adaptation of Jack Kerouac's 'On the Road' will be filmed in Montreal, New Orleans and New Mexico.
The Montreal Gazette says;
'The Kerouac adaptation will film here for most of the month of August, before heading south to New Orleans for a month of shooting. Then it shifts even farther south, with the production moving to Mexico for several weeks before returning to Montreal to wrap the final scenes.'
OnLocationVocation.com also notes that 'this might not be Kristen’s only trip to NOLA this year either. It looks like Summit’s considering New Orleans as the location for the final Twilight film, Breaking Dawn as well.'
The trailer for Rachelle's new movie 'Barneys Version' can now be viewed online. This is the movie that Rachelle famously had scheduling conflicts with 'Eclipse' for and ultimately cost her the role of Victoria.
The movie synopsis is:

sharply into focus.

Scott Speedman, Rosamund Pike, Minnie Driver, Rachelle Lefevre'
What do you think of Rachelle's new trailer?
Tinsel talked to MTV about working with David Slade and her favorite 'Eclipse' scene;
"[David Slade is] great. He's a really different director from Chris Weitz," Korey told MTV News, comparing Slade to the man who led "New Moon." "Chris Weitz is an actor's director, where you focus on all the emotion, whereas David Slade is more technical, so there's a distance because he's always thinking about the fuller picture with all the fight scenes."
Just back from the Cannes Film Festival, where she promoted her independent feature "Stained," Korey also talked about the scene she's most excited to see onscreen. While she hasn't seen the finished third installment, the "wolf pack" creation story, she said, is a "beautiful moment" of storytelling.

This past weekend Billy Burke revealed the music video for his single 'Removed'. Billy revealed;
'we managed to throw together a little something while on location in Shreveport, Louisiana. Some of you might know that for the past couple months I was there filming a pretty groovy and I think, pretty bad ass (somewhat adult) 3D action road picture (directed by Patrick Lussier) with Nicolas Cage called “DRIVE ANGRY”. On one of the few days that I had free, I had the good fortune of being visited by my close friend and up and coming filmmaker Devon Gummersall. He and I both thought it might be a sweet opportunity to shoot some unplanned, guerilla style footage for an impromptu video for “REMOVED”. My super-cool wife and best pal Pollyanna Rose agreed to play with us and thus, we set forth on a one day into night excursion to see what we could come up with. As you’ll see we started out on the deserted streets of Shreveport and ended up literally, in the closet of the house we were renting.'
