After fans campaigned to get Betty White appearing in "Saturday Night Live", now "Twilight" stars have sounded their desire to work with the veteran actress in "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn". Met by E! Online during "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse" premiere in Los Angeles, Robert Pattinson thinks the 88-year-old should be cast in the upcoming movie.

"Definitely," the depicter of Edward Cullen said, agreeing the idea proposed by the site. He then jokingly added, "She can be the baby," referring to Renesmee who is Bella and Edward's daughter. While Pattinson's idea might sound impossible, Kellan Lutz who supported his co-star offered a solution. "I love Betty," he gushed. "I would love for them to do what they did in '[The Curious Case of] Benjamin Button' with her and she can be Renesmee. I would change some scenes up so we could have Jacob and Emmet going for her. I want to work with her. That would be so much fun."

Julia Jones, who has just been added to the cast line up for the latest "Twilight" installment to play Leah Clearwater, suggested White to play Bella's "great-great-grandmother in a flashback scene." Meanwhile, author of "Twilight" saga novels Stephenie Meyer had a vision to see White as a bloodsucker, telling E! Online "We have so many vampires in 'Breaking Dawn', surely she can fit in somewhere. Wouldn't it be amazing if she was like just sitting there with a big group of the Volturi? That would be amazing."

Betty White has won six Emmy Awards over her 70-year acting career. She appeared in Sandra Bullock-starring movie "The Proposal" and is set to star alongside Kristen Bell in "You Again". She lands a regular role as Elka the house caretaker on TV sitcom "Hot in Cleveland".

As for "Breaking Dawn", this last chapter of the "Twilight" series will be made into two parts. "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part I" is slated for November 18, 2011 U.S. release and "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part II" which will be debuted later. All main cast have signed to reprise their respective roles in these two films, with Bill Condon on board to direct them.
