The Twilight Saga might be coming to a close, but Robert Pattinson's career continues to make headlines.

Deadline confirmed that Pattinson will star opposite Carey Mulligan in Hold On To Me, the inspired-by-true-events story of a kidnapping gone wrong directed by James Marsh (who won Oscars for his films Man On Wire and Project Nim). The steamy crime drama follows a couple who kidnap the richest man in town for ransom and bury him.

Glee and Gossip Girl also announced a slew of cameos, while Aaron Paul secured a very different film role for the Breaking Bad star.

Keep up with who has been cast below:

That's one full house!

The Soho House celebrated the second day of the Toronto Film Festival on Friday with parties for Imogene, The Master and Anna Karenina.

Trudie Styler was one of the first guests to arrive. Wearing a white dress, Styler – who co-produced Imogene – sipped on a Grey Goose Le Fizz cocktail and happily greeted Kristen Wiig and Darren Criss, who star in the film.

Upstairs, The Master star Amy Adams arrived in an elegant black dress and spent most of the party chatting with guests.

Julianne Moore was also spotted mingling with guests and relaxing after a busy day of festival activities.

Meanwhile at the Anna Karenina bash, Keira Knightley – who wore a black Elie Saab Haute Couture gown – spent most of the evening talking with costar Aaron Johnson and his wife, filmmaker Sam Taylor Wood.



Nearby, Jude Law enjoyed a Grey Goose cocktail as he laughed with friends.

On Saturday, Soho House hosted an event following the premiere of Silver Linings Playbook: The film's star Bradley Cooper held court on a corner couch, snacking and chatting with other guests.

Chris O'Dowd and new wife, Dawn Porter were also in attendance and enjoyed seafood salads, meatballs and other light fare.

Woody Harrelson happily posed for photos with fans, while Alexander Skarsgard enjoyed a beer with female friend.

Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul – in town to promote Smashed – also made the scene, chatting with fans and fellow stars alike. He even recounted when he and fiancé Lauren Parsekian saw Sally Field on a recent flight and "were completely starstruck," says a source. "But she had the same reaction toward him!" Who wouldn't?

Also in the club: Happy couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, who hung out with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. And Glee star Chord Overstreet, who was sporting a hat, chatted up Krasinski a bit.

Kristen Wiig's Teary Saturday Night Live 'Graduation'

Originally posted 05/20/2012 01:10PM



For once, Saturday Night Live didn't go for laughs, instead ending its season with tears and hugs Saturday night.

In a surprise – and surprisingly emotional – send-off, cast members appeared to bid goodbye to key player Kristen Wiig. The Bridesmaids star's departure has long been rumored, but has yet to be confirmed by NBC.

Still, the farewell sentiment seemed clear: After host Mick Jagger introduced a class of "graduates," Wiig took the stage. Then one by one, her SNL costars joined her, each for a brief dance while musical guest Arcade Fire serenaded her with "She's a Rainbow" and "Ruby Tuesday."

Last to take a tearful Wiig for a spin: her boss, SNL producer Lorne Michaels.

"Tanning Mom" Patricia Krentcil has now officially had her moment in the sun: She's been lampooned on Saturday Night Live.

The joking around took place during the Weekend Update with Seth Meyers, when, in a trail of smoke, Kristen Wiig showed up at the news desk looking like Krentcil, the New Jersey mom who's pleaded not guilty to bringing her 6-year-old daughter into a tanning bed with her.

Expanding upon the real Krentcil's remarks to a reporter this week that critics of her look are "jealous," "fat" and "ugly," Wiig said, "Though I can't blame them for being jealous. I am alluring in a way they will never be."
