This is a time when celebrity can come in handy, and one star in particular, George Clooney, is lending his power to the cause of helping earthquake-ravaged Haiti. The actor-director is also rallying some of his famous friends to join him for a “mega-telethon” he’s planning, according to The Wrap. —KA
All of the MTV channels worldwide, along with ABC, NBC, CBS, the CW, HBO and CNN, are going to air the telethon live on Friday, Jan. 22, from 8-10 EST, according to Clooney’s representatives.
Fox hasn’t yet signed on to the telethon, but an executive at a rival network indicated he couldn’t imagine it won’t support the cause. “We’re all going to do this. It’s too terrible not too,” he said.
