Hollywood stars are expected to join the moment of silence. Some are even calling on fans to join the tribute. Matthew McConaughey, Jada Pinkett Smith, Eva Longoria, and Tyra Banks are among Hollywood celebrities to retweet the message "Join me in observing a moment for SandyHook victims, in silence, this Friday at 930am ET.”
