Robert Pattinson Cast in ‘Life’

Robert PattinsonRobert Pattinson will star as a magazine photographer in Life

The Twilight Saga actor will appear as Dennis Stock in the new movie - based on a true story - which looks at the cameraman's friendship with actor James Dean. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robert will star opposite Dane DeHaan as the Life magazine photographer, and work on the film is expected to start in 2014.

The real-life pair met shortly before James rose to fame with movies like East of Eden and Rebel Without a Cause, and Dennis took several iconic photographs of the legendary actor shortly before he became a star.

He has also been rumored to be set for Queen of the Desert, which will tell the story of Gertrude Bell and T.E. Lawrence. However, would-be co-star Naomi Watts has admitted she isn't sure when the Werner Herzog will start filming: "We'll wait and see. He's a director I'm completely in awe of. He's a wonderful filmmaker and documentarian. It's a fantastic character, great story. I'm not sure when it's going to take place yet; there's been so much travel, as well, and I've got little kids, so we'll see if it happens later this year or next year."

Mischa Barton Happy With Hospital Stint

Mischa Barton sporting a new look

The Beautiful Life: TBL actress Mischa Barton thinks that being sectioned was a “good” thing.

The recently unemployed star was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold earlier this year but says she appreciated the chance to take time out and reassess her life.

“I went to the hospital because of pain with my wisdom teeth and I ended up getting ‘put in,’ but that’s because I was so overwhelmingly stressed out and upset. I think it was my teeth and the stress of having a new job and traveling. I was miserable. Actresses aren’t given the time to recover after stuff like that - you’re expected to bounce back from surgery and work right away again. I was shocked it went that far but I think it was necessary for me to take that time out. I’m so much more settled and calm now. Ultimately, it was a positive thing.”

Wednesday Ratings: The Unusuals Does the Usual

Despite a flurry of promotion for the new series, ABC’s The Unusuals did what most shows do in that time slot: not much of anything. The premiere lost 18% of its lead-in’s audience and made it that much easier for FOX to dominate.

Wednesday Ratings: CBS Gets Last Laugh from Special

Watching people work ordinary jobs might not seem interesting, but it apparently is when celebrities do it. The April Fools’ Special, I Get That a Lot, surprised many last night by pulling in stronger than expected numbers.  Unfortunately, a win over Lie to Me wasn’t quite enough for CBS. Idol still put FOX on top for the night.
