HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The actors for the two-part finale to the Twilight movie saga Breaking Dawn want more money. A source says the Summit Entertainment is working furiously to close the talent deals required to split Stephenie Meyer's fourth Twilight novel into two films. The studio is close to finalizing agreements with leads Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, all of whom will get big raises to return for a fifth installment of the vampire romance saga. 

She joked about it on a promo for Saturday Night Live, but fans of Betty White are taking the idea of the 88-year-old hosting the Oscars seriously. The Facebook page Getting Betty White to Host the Academy Awards has amassed more than 30,000 fans since launching late Sunday night. It might sound far-fetched, but after proving she's a ratings boost for SNL, one has to think the Academy might at least stop to consider it. She's got the live TV experience and the quick wit.

Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter is pumped about all the talk surrounding a big-screen remake of her 1970s superhero series, and her pick to play the lead is Sandra Bullock.
