More actors join 'Breaking Dawn' as vampires

Here's some fang-tastic news for "Twilight" fans: Summit Entertainment has announced the names of the actors who will make up the Amazonian, Egyptian, Irish and Romanian vampire covens as well as the European and American nomads in the upcoming "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" films.

Other than former "Pushing Daisies" star Lee Pace, who will play American nomad Garrett, the new batch of actors are relatively unknown.

The Amazon Coven, who have lived outside of civilization for centuries, is comprised of Tracey Heggins ("Brothers and Sisters") as Senna and Judi Shekoni (the UK's "EastEnders") as Zafrina.

T.I. responds to critics who call suicide attempt a 'stunt'

[Editor's note: To hear more from T.I. about helping to prevent a suicide, tune in to HLN’s Prime News this evening at 6:30 p.m. ET.]

The story of T.I. helping police talk a jumper off the ledge of a building in Atlanta Wednesday has raised a few dubious eyebrows.

T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, said he heard about a young man threatening to jump from a 22-story building while listening to the city’s V-103 radio station, which is housed in said edifice. The rapper is due in court on Friday because of drug charges that were handed down last month.

An Atlanta Police spokesperson told CNN that the rapper “appeared out of nowhere” and talked to the man about how “a person ‘can make it through anything.’” The spokesperson added that the rapper “just happened to be in the right place at the right time.”

Hitchcock, 'Modern Family' style

On Wednesday night's "Modern Family," Claire couldn't bear to tell Phil that he's not funny before he prepared to give a big speech (her secret: she doesn't laugh with her eyes... the demonstration was priceless).

Meanwhile, Mitchell couldn't bear to tell the very-sensitive Cam that he looked bad in bike shorts ("Maybe there is a person who looks good in bike shorts but my boyfriend is not that person").

The solution? Taking inspiration from Alfred Hitchcock's classic "Strangers on a Train" and taking care of the other person's "murder."

Chilean miners inspire book, separate mining reality show on its way

The rescue of the Chilean miners is truly an inspirational story. In fact, it's already spawned a book, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Jonathan Franklin - a reporter covering the rescue saga for Britain's Guardian newspaper - is set to release the book "33 Men, Buried Alive: The Inside Story of the Trapped Chilean Miners" in the UK in early 2011. In addition, according to Broadcasting & Cable, the miners have been fielding offers for beer commercials and TV interviews, the latter potentially earning the men as much as $20,000.

One thing we know won't be happening, despite reports to the contrary: If there is a movie in the works about the rescue, as some speculate surely can't be far off, it won't be starring Javier Bardem. The actor's rep tells CNN, "There is no truth to this rumor.”
