The movie star will promote his new film Cosmopolis on Good Morning America in the U.S. next Wednesday - and TV bosses are planning to put Pattinson on air live to viewers on the east coast.
It will be his first TV chat since the heartbroken Brit dumped girlfriend Kristen Stewart after she confessed to an "indiscretion" with married filmmaker Rupert Sanders last month (Jul12).
Pretending to be deeply affected by the actress' cheating scandal, the Old School star hit talk show Conan deeply depressed and began to weep as he explained why he was so low, joking, "I don't know if I could have done something to prevent it."
His upset turned to anger when host Conan O'Brien suggested, "I'm sure it's gonna be fine."
Ferrell raged, "It's not gonna be fine, ever... What they had was so special; you would never know... She is a trampire, that's what she is."
Earlier this week (begs30Jul12), Stewart's producer pal Giovanni Agnelli jumped to the actress' defence amid the fallout following her cheating confessions, and urged critics to stop calling her a "trampire" - a reference to her vampire role in the Twilight franchise.
He tweeted, "If you've ever used the word Trampire you're a mindless pathetic piece of s**t."
Stewart stunned fans and Hollywood insiders last month (Jul12) when she revealed a tabloid story about a fling with director Rupert Sanders was true. It now appears her romance with Robert Pattinson is over after removal vans were spotted outside the Los Angeles home the couple shares.
The Twilight star went head-to-head with The Hunger Games beauty earlier this year (12) to land the coveted part of troubled Peyton Loftis in a big screen adaptation of acclaimed author William Styron's 1951 novel, and Stewart has emerged victorious, according to Vulture.com.
The film, about a psychologically vulnerable woman who struggles to deal with her dysfunctional family in 1950s Virginia, will be directed by Crazy Heart filmmaker Scott Cooper. Production is slated to begin next year (13).
The casting news will be a welcome distraction for Stewart, who has been dealing with a media fall-out after admitting to cheating on her Twilight co-star and boyfriend Robert Pattinson with married director Rupert Sanders.
Both the actress and Sanders were forced to issue apologies to their partners after photos of the lovers kissing and cuddling in a Los Angeles park were published last week (ends27Jul12).
Kristen Stewart's fling with married director Rupert Sanders is set to stay in the headlines for some time to come - the moviemaker has been confirmed for the Snow White & The Huntsman sequel.
The couple issued apologies to its partners last month (Jul12) after photos of Stewart and Sanders kissing and cuddling in a Los Angeles park hit the Internet - and while the filmmaker attempts to save his marriage to model/actress Liberty Ross, it appears Stewart's romance with her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson is over due to the "indiscretion".
But, despite the scandal, Universal bosses are pressing ahead with plans for a sequel to the film which brought the couple together - and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the director and his leading lady will be back for the movie.
Stewart is already signed up for the sequel, but Sanders can still walk away from the project, according to the publication.
Studio chiefs behind the Twilight movie franchise have assured fans plans to release the final installment are still on track following Kristen Stewart's headline-grabbing cheating confession.
Stewart shocked her devoted followers when she issued a public statement apologising to her Twilight co-star and boyfriend Robert Pattinson after she was pictured kissing married director Rupert Sanders.
Fans of the vampire franchise had feared a potential fall-out between the two lead actors could affect the release and promotion of upcoming movie The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, which is due to hit cinemas in November (12).
However, Nancy Kirkpatrick of Summit Entertainment is adamant the movie release is going ahead as planned.
She tells EW.com, "While it is studio policy not to comment on the personal lives of actors, Summit is moving full steam ahead and looking forward to this November's opening of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. We are confident that the film delivers amazing entertainment for our passionate fans and general audience alike."
Stewart, who has been dating Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson for three years, stunned Hollywood last week (ends27Jul12) when she confessed to a "momentary indiscretion" with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders and apologised to devotees for the controversy.
Heartbroken Pattinson has since reportedly moved out of the Los Angeles home the couple shared, but the Brit will have to reunite with Stewart in a matter of weeks as they begin to promote the November (12) release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2.
But co-star Serratos is confident ticket sales will not be affected by the couple's fall-out as fans are still invested in the characters they play onscreen.
She tells UsMagazine.com, "Of course people are fans of us now, but I think above anything, they're fans of these characters. I don't think anyone's really gonna give a s**t. They're gonna see the movie; it's going to be awesome."
The actor is said to have turned to his Water For Elephants co-star for comfort after Stewart, his girlfriend of three years, issued a surprisingly candid statement last week (25Jul12) apologising for a "momentary indiscretion" with director Rupert Sanders.
According to a new People magazine report, Pattinson moved out of the couple's Los Angeles property and is seeking solace in Witherspoon's vacation house.
An insider tells the publication the Twilight hunk was blindsided by the infidelity news, adding, "There was no sign that either of them was unhappy. He would have done anything for her."
The brunette beauty stunned fans last week (ends27Jul12) by apologising for a fling with director Rupert Sanders in a surprisingly candid statement.
Pattinson has yet to comment on the state of his relationship with Stewart, but removal vans were spotted outside the couple's Los Angeles home earlier this week (begs31Jul12), fuelling rumours the romance is over.
U.S. tabloid reports suggested the star had ordered his team to scrap all scheduled press days for new movie Cosmopolis ahead of its release in America later this month (Aug12) to avoid being quizzed over Stewart's statement.
However, a spokesperson for the star insists Pattinson will go ahead with all confirmed promotional activities as planned, telling Gossip Cop, "Cosmopolis is a film that Robert is very proud of and looks forward to supporting.
"No confirmed engagements have been cancelled. Any reports to the contrary are inaccurate."
Kristen Stewart may have apologized profusely and publicly to Robert Pattinson for cheating on him with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders. But it looks like all the "I love him, I love hims" in the world aren't going to get Pattinson to turn that U-Haul around. (Us Weekly reports that he's currently holed up in Water for Elephants' co-star Reese Witherspoon's place hiding out).
Now, he's going to hit her where it hurts: he wants the dog. According to a new report, the troubled Twilight stars are locked in a custody battle over who gets their pooch, Bear. And this might take longer to hammer out than Tom and Katie's lightning-fast custody agreement for Suri. Co-authors of the book What About Wally: Co-Parenting a Pet With Your Ex, explain why the maybe-soon-to-be-exes should just drop the bitterness and do the right thing: LA family lawyer David Pisarra says this type of custody war is becoming common in Hollywood — and in the rest of the country, for that matter. "What I am seeing in my practice is pet parents working out custody arrangements very similar as to what’s done with children," Pisarra tells Hollywood.com. "What they usually include are visitation rights, how the costs of the pet will be divided and how boarding and end-of-life decisions will be handled." Since Stewart and Pattinson aren't married, "there could be a lawsuit filed for ownership or an agreement could be worked out by the two of them which could then be ruled on by an arbitrator," Pisarra continues. "The third option is for the two of them to get together, create their own agreement on co-parenting, and then stick with it." But, sadly, in the case of angry exes, pets are often used as a bargaining chip (and tools to punish the other person). "I just hope this doesn’t turn in to an issue where they are using the dog to get back at each other," noted pet expert Steven May tells us. "That’s the kind of selfish act that ends up hurting the dog the most.” "Dogs, like people, respond to their environment," May adds. "And if they’re getting pushed and pulled a bunch of different ways at once, and are surrounded by a lot of fighting, they can very easily develop behavioral problems." So come on, K. Stew, the ball is in your court. Frankly, you don't stand a chance at winning: you're the villain in this whole mess and more importantly, we all know Bella's not a dog person in the end.

The Twilight star stunned fans and Hollywood insiders last week (ends27Jul12) when she revealed a tabloid story about a fling with director Rupert Sanders was true.
It now appears her romance with Robert Pattinson is over after removal vans were spotted outside the Los Angeles home the couple shares - and his fans have turned on Stewart.
But Agnelli feels the vitriol aimed at his young friend is over the top, insisting there's no way she slept with married Sanders, as has been suggested by some media outlets.
In a series of tweets on Monday (30Jul12), the producer rants, "I'll say right now what the manipulative media isn't saying... Kristen Stewart did not have any type of sex with Rupert Sanders... The spin that keeps growing on this story is staggering. There was NO on set affair. Stop printing LIES.
"If one of your friends in real life was hurting, and lots of people were being cruel. Wouldn't you ask them to please stop? Honestly?"
And, taking aim at Twilight fans who have dubbed Stewart a 'Trampire' following her indiscretion, he adds, "If you've ever used the word Trampire you're a mindless pathetic piece of s**t."
Agnelli also took a moment to thank fans who have pledged their support to Stewart, revealing she has seen a "twitition" and "support video" and adding, "Thank you."
The drama began when shots of Stewart and Sanders kissing featured on the cover and inside last week's Us Weekly magazine in America.
