The first major wave of Comic Con announcements from various studios started today. Warner Brothers just announced their TV shows that will be present.

At previous Comic Cons, Twilight actors have also had other shows at the convention such as last summer that had the following:
- Kristen Stewart Snow White
- Kellan Lutz The Immortals
- Joe Anderson (Alistair) The River
- Taylor Lautner Abduction
In general those panels are really good. You get to see the Twilight stars in a new role, plus you get to hear why you might be interested in the new material.
Looking into our crystal ball (we have no insider info just educated guesses) we think you may see material from the following at Comic Con:
Apparition (Ashley Greene)
Java Heat (Kellan Lutz)
We’ve been looking over the past week and found what we thought was some of overlooked video featuring our Twilight dads.
I think all fans of the saga can agree that Billy Burke has taken the character of Charlie to a whole different level and made him a fan favorite! Without spoiling too much, the wedding toasts belong to him and Anna Kendrick. He talks about that with E! as well as his feelings about Kristen Stewart.
Last year Billy Burke branched out into recording his first CD, Removed. Billy was no stranger to music having performed in various bands during the early segments of his career. He has just released the latest video of one of his tracks entitled Polyanna Rose (which happens to be the name of his wife).
Here’ sis the first video he did of the title track.
“I am not a father, nor do I even pretend to know how to be a good one. (It involves owning a briefcase and knowing how to throw a baseball back and forth, I believe?)
However, I do know “The Twilight Saga.” So with Father’s Day coming up this weekend, I’m paying tribute to the dads from the series.
But who is the best “Twilight” dad? (Besides all of them?) Allow me to lay out the facts.
Charlie Swan, Carlisle Cullen, Billy Black and (future screen daddy) Edward Cullen are the men under the microscope. While everyone has their own ideas on what makes the best father, I’ve done some in-depth research (thanks, Ask Jeeves!) and these are the qualities most will agree on:
They should be of high integrity, but never high on other things. They should be able to provide for their kids, meaning they need some cash money — Benjamins, if you will. And a father needs to be responsible, offer guidance, and spend quality time with children. These are proven techniques that keep daughters (and sons) off the stripper pole.”
His analysis is tongue-in-cheek and hilarious. Check it out.
