Nikki Reed continues one-woman crusade to make her husband relevant

Paul McDonald Hoping To Pen A 'Twilight' Song
Nikki Reed's 'American Idol'-alum husband wants to submit songs for 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2' soundtrack consideration.

Newlyweds Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald gave MTV News an exclusive look at their latest labor of love on Tuesday — the video for their first musical collaboration, "Now That I've Found You." And while "Twilight" star Reed didn't necessarily see the sweet ditty ending up on the "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" soundtrack, she did reveal that husband McDonald is in the early stages of submitting a song for potential inclusion in the saga's final installment.

"Paul has been speaking with them about potentially attempting to write something," Reed said. "Nothing is set in stone. He will be working on songs to submit. It would be a great, great thing. The music supervisor [Alexandra Patsavas] on that, as well as [director] Bill Condon, have great taste."

"It's very preliminary," McDonald confirmed. "It's kind of one of those things. I write all the time."

Over the past four years, the "Twilight Saga" soundtracks have gained a reputation for catapulting artists to new heights, with acts like Paramore, Christina Perri and Joy Formidable all benefiting from their confab with the Cullen clan. And as the former "American Idol" contestant looks to join that auspicious group, he's beginning by doing his homework.

"I watched some of the movies the other day," he said. "I hadn't gotten around to watching all of them, so I'm getting familiar with the story lines."

"He's trying to say he wasn't a Twi-hard before knowing me," Reed teased.

Included in his prep work will likely be an artist's screening of "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," which doesn't hit theaters until November 16. In the meantime, McDonald is working on his album, which he expects to drop early this fall.
