Kristen StewartAfter so many years wearing blond wigs and body glitter as the Cullen family patriarch, we totally understand why Peter Facinelli might want to take a break from big-screen endeavors to try his own hand at stardom of the YA literary variety—which he is, along with a couple of author friends and the blessing of Little Brown books. We can expect to see Peter's first authorial effort, a dystopian tale about a boy named Rose, on shelves in 2015. But why should he get to have all the fun? The time is ripe for all the "Twilight" peeps to give novel-writing a shot! And just in case they're looking for inspiration, we've got some perfect pitches for the saga's three headliners whenever they're ready to write.

For Kristen Stewart: a romance!
Everyone loves a roman a clef, and Kristen's renowned close-mouthedness about her private life will make readers even keener to pick up a book that seems like it might be an autobiography in disguise. Our suggestion: The story of a young actress named Kaitlyn Wartstew, who finds herself cast in a multi-film franchise about sparkly zombies, and ends up embroiled in a high-profile secret love affair on-set with a delicious Brit named Bobbert Schmattinson.

"Twilight" star Peter Facinelli knows a thing or two about young-adult literature. He did star in all five big-screen adaptations of Stephenie Meyer's best-selling "Twilight" series, after all. And perhaps a bit of the author's shine rubbed off on the actor, because he's penning his very own novel (with a little help from his friends)!

The book is slated for a summer 2015 release, and here's the synopsis:

Show of hands: Who here appreciates a fine-looking man in a finely woven, snuggly sweater? Everyone? OK! Do we have something for you then! For today's Fall Movie Preview Week feature, we've nabbed not one but two EXCLUSIVE images from "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," both featuring the always alluring Robert Pattinson.

We must, however, give the advantage to this first photo in which the 26-year-old actor is handsomely clad in chunky knitwear, on his way to ask the Denali coven to aid his cause against the Volturi. I mean, yummmmmy, right?

You'd be hard pressed to find an employee who's never pilfered a pen or roll of TP from the office supply closet, and the same goes for movie stars... Though their workplace wonders are infinitely more interesting. Take the stars of "The Twilight Saga," for instance, who stopped by for a chat during our two-hour Comic-Con livestream on Thursday. When a fan tweet asked whether they'd taken anything from set, it inspired some interesting answers.

"I'm such a rule follower, and I couldn't possibly steal anything even if I wanted to," Nikki Reed said. But that's not the end of the story. Stay tuned...

Seeing as this will be our last Comic-Con hurrah with the entire cast of "The Twilight Saga," we're going out with a bloody bang (no whimpering here!). Yesterday, MTV News was lucky enough to snag the holy trinity (Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner) along with author Stephenie Meyer and the rest of the Cullen coven for our two-hour livestream straight from San Diego. Expect many more "Twilight" goodies during today's show (which airs shortly at 1 p.m. ET), but in the meantime, we have something else for you to sink your teeth into: EXCLUSIVE "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" character art featuring the Cullens!

The images are being used on trading cards at the Con, but we have your first online look at the art! And the gang is pretty much all here: Alice (Ashley Greene), Emmett (Kellan Lutz), Rosalie (Nikki Reed), Jasper (Jackson Rathbone), Carlisle (Peter Facinelli) and Esme (Elizabeth Reaser). Just look at how fierce they all are! If the Volturi had laid eyes on these steely gazes before leaving for Forks, we have a feeling they would just hunkered down in Volterra. Forever.

If you only know Peter Facinelli as flaxen-haired Cullen patriarch Carlisle, prepare to see a whole new (criminal!) side of the actor when his screenwriting debut, "Loosies," opens today. Peter stars in the independent film as Bobby, a pick-pocket who accidentally impregnates a girl during their one-night stand. (What would Esme say?!)

We sat down with Peter to get all the dish on his romance caper but, of course, talk inevitably turned to "The Twilight Saga," whose final installment hits theaters November 16. Though he has yet to see any footage from the highly anticipated release, Peter was more than happy to share a bit about the scope of the grandiose production.

The media blitz for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" is on like Donkey Kong, and with just one week before the film's world premiere, we can't turn on our TV without seeing a member of the Cullen family talking about the upcoming nuptials between Edward and Bella. Not that we're complaining! Because it's fabulous! And this morning, the Cullen paterfamilias himself made an appearance in New York to talk "Twilight" with Regis and Kelly...or at least, he was pretty sure it was New York.

"Sometimes I wake up and I don't know where I am," Peter Facinelli admitted, as he's spent the past four years filming "Nurse Jackie" and "The Twilight Saga" on opposite coasts. "My jet lag has jet lag."

After weeks of interviews for the upcoming "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," the cast of this year's new "Twilight" flick are no doubt fatigued by the endless rounds of questions that they have to answer with, like, complete sentences involving actual words. So when we got the group for a visit, MTV News' Josh Horowitz went easy on them with a series of simple yes or no questions.

Or at least, it was supposed to be easy. A few highlights from the clips:

Do Taylor Lautner's friends still call him "Sharkboy"?
Answer: Yep. (But he's never had a pedicure, so, y'know. There's that.)

Did Peter Facinelli once kill a man?
His co-stars respond with a terrified, "NO!"... which means that not only has Peter killed someone, but he's also threatened to kill anyone who revealed the truth. Obviously.

We don't often report on the goings on of super hero movies—that's usually the province of our brother blog Splash Page. But when it involves our favorite sparkly vamps, we obviously have to take note.

In a new video from CollegeHumor, Nikki Reed and Peter Facinelli—clad in matching tight purple get-ups—play Wonder Twins Jayna and Zan, whom, I'm told by resident comic book dude, Josh Wigler, are "real" DC Comics heroes. In a world where Hollywood's run out of A-list superheroes, the duo auditions to fill the well-worn spandex. (Metaphorically, of course. We don't encourage sharing spandex. Diseases and such.) Except, well, their talents aren't all that exciting. Zan can morph into water, and Jayna can turn into any animal, and their display of a turtle in a jar of liquid is lackluster to say the least.

Big-voiced Brit Adele just broke records in the UK (she's now tied with Dido for second fastest-selling album, with two million copies sold in just 87 days), and she's also getting a lot of love on this side of the pond. Everyone from Donald Faison to Abigail Breslin (pictured) was tweeting her praises today. Donald declared Adele's disc the soundtrack to his life, tweeting, "I know I'm late... But ADELE your album is the new sound track to my life. Wonderful! OMG wonderful!!" And Abigail declared Adele's "Someone Like You" her song of the day and professed her love for the album as a whole, saying, "Song of the day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_Zs7XS3XUo loving Adele's album '21'."

Meanwhile, the cast of "Community" was pretty pumped about tonight's flashback episode. Danny Pudi called the upcoming ep one of the best yet, tweeting, "Tonight's Community (8/7c NBC) is a laughter festival. Easily one of the most fun episodes to read and shoot. Hope you enjoy it!" Co-star Alison Brie didn't think that was quite enthusiastic enough, however, insisting, "Tonight's #NBCCommunity is going to ROCK YOUR SOCKS OFF!! Not knock them off, but straight up ROCK them off. I'm really excited about it."

Check out the rest of Thursday's best tweets, including which "Twilight" actor has been too busy to be bored lately. Follow us @hollywoodcrush to get even more celebrity and pop culture news around the clock!
