Rob Pattinson Joins Haiti Telethon

Rob Pattinson is the latest celebrity to offer their support to the victims of the Haitian earthquake. The event this coming Friday is being helmed by George Clooney, who attended the Golden Globes on Sunday to try and recruit talent for the special.

It seems he did a good job of rounding up the troops, since Jennifer Aniston, Jake Gyllenhaal, Brad Pitt, Anna Kendrick, Sandra Bullock, Zac Efron, Bradley Cooper, Renée Zellweger, Chris Pine, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Colin Farrell, Jon Hamm, Gabby Sidibe and Emily Blunt are all on board.

According to E!, Rob will be the presenter in London, with performances by Jay Z and Bono. Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Shakira and Bruce Springsteen will also perform during the two-hour televised event.

Event organizers are reportedly trying to get Oprah and Angelina Jolie involved because they know how much of an impact both women make on the general public. But let’s not forget—Angie already made a substantial contribution to the cause last week!

George Clooney will be hosting the event from LA, with Wyclef Jean in New York City, and Anderson Cooper in Haiti. The event airs January 22nd at 8PM eastern on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, CNN, BET, the CW, HBO, MTV, VH1 and CMT. The show will benefit Jean's Yele Haiti Foundation, as well as UNICEF, Oxfam America, Partners in Health, and the Red Cross.
