The Social NetworkDisproportionately large numbers of picture tweets continued to be a Friday trend today, with another on-set shot of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" showing up from Jerry Bruckheimer, Ludacris hanging out with Paul Walker, and Rose McGowan showing up to a USO event with an actor you may recognize from "Sons of Anarchy."

Jon Favreau continued to update everyone about the production status of "Cowboys and Aliens," while Eli Roth and Diddy both joined the critical praise pile-on for "The Social Network." Find out if you agree with them and why Shaq says Kevin Garnett got mad at him after the jump.

My Soul to TakeTyrese Gibson hasn't been shy about what he's been up to during "Transformers 3" filming, but he posted a picture today of himself hanging out with someone familiar to us here at Twitter-Wood, GM Vice President of Global Design Ed Welburn, whom I spoke to back at the Chicago Auto Show in 2009.

There were a few other pictures of note in the feed today, too, with Pee-Wee Herman taking a tour of New York City and making friends on the subway. Elsewhere, Chloe Moretz shared a shot of a crocheted Lady Gaga doll that her brother made. You can decide whether or not it actually looks like her after the jump where you'll find Ice-T's micro-review of "My Soul to Take" and which actresses Tom Hanks referred to as "foxes."

What's good enough for Tom Hanks is evidently good enough for Johnny Depp, as the "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" star has joined the list of prospective lead actors for Kathryn Bigelow's "Hurt Locker" follow-up "Sleeping Dogs." The film was first publicly referred to as "Triple Frontier," but "Sleeping Dogs" seems to be the standard name now. Whatever it's called, Bigelow's aiming high in terms of star power.

The film about organized crime along the borders of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil has five big roles and two really big roles, one of which Depp could see himself playing, according to sources speaking to Deadline. As anyone who's seen Depp's current list of rumored and pre-production projects knows, however, he has a thick stack of work on his schedule that would require time travel and cloning to complete. He's reportedly open to finding a way to make Bigelow's film work, but it doesn't sound like it's going to be easy. Read More...

Alex MerazRandy Moss will be leaving a few fans behind in New England now that he's been traded back to Minnesota, and that includes his self-proclaimed biggest fan "ever" Donnie Wahlberg. Wahlberg's holding it together, but his twitter account has been linked to down below if you want to give him some support.

In movie news, if you're a fan of the "Twilight" series and feel like you haven't been able to see enough of actor Alex Meraz, you should probably go see his upcoming flick "Never Back Down 2," since it required him to film his first on-screen sex scene. Get the details after the jump. There, you'll also find out who's been hearing Kenny Powers lines at parties and what Michael Caine had to say to a fan on the subject of death.

Tom Hanks and Kathryn Bigelow have Oscar power flowing through their veins, and they're reportedly in talks to put it together in the director's "Hurt Locker" follow-up "Sleeping Dogs" (formerly titled "Triple Frontier") Hanks is said to be undecided about one of the five lead roles for the film centered around organized crime in the border zone shared by Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil. Hanks might have to share a few headlines, but an alliance between these two would have to catch the Academy's attention before the film even hits theaters.

No one has made Hanks an offer yet, according to inside sources speaking to Deadline, but things are moving fast, as filming is scheduled to start sometime next year.

"The Hurt Locker" is still fresh in a lot of minds, yet it's been 15 years since Hanks took home a that little gold guy named Oscar for his performance in "Forrest Gump." He may be totally content to let it share a mantel with its twin from "Philadelphia," but if he's considering another run to remind everyone about why those awards are there, "Sleeping Dogs" sounds like it could be an appropriate vehicle.

SupermanZack Snyder's director colleagues expressed approval over his newly announced gig on the Superman reboot yesterday. Both Brett Ratner and Duncan Jones sent their regards, while Snyder just put up an image of a postage stamp.

A few more lively scenes showed up, too, though. Wes Craven and Pee-Wee Herman posed for a shot together, and Miranda Cosgrove got into a snowball fight while celebrating Christmas a bit early. You'll know what I mean when you take a look at the mayhem below. It's there along with Emma Roberts' pick for best film of the year, Marlon Wayans' harsh words for the 49ers and Stephen Colbert's concern for hobos.

"The Hobbit" has already faced issues over how its story will end and whether or not Peter Jackson will direct the two planned films, but now as The New York Times reports that the two-part saga is finally nearing a green light and could be made in 3-D, Middle Earth's return to New Zealand has been placed in jeopardy. In fact, a union dispute -- NZ actors want there rights unionized, and Warner Bros. is threatening to move the production to Eastern Europe should a boycott occur -- has reached Mount Doom temperatures, and the country's government has joined in the fight to help keep Tolkien's universe from sailing away.

"I would be very, very concerned if (the production) moved offshore," NZ Prime Minster John Key said, according to a Hollywood Reporter story. "If you can't make 'The Hobbit' here, frankly, what movies are you going to make here?" Read More...

The Social NetworkIt's been a bad week for entertainment industry deaths, with "A-Team" and "Rockford Files" writer/producer Stephen Cannell joining a list that already included Greg Giraldo, Tony Curtis, Arthur Penn and Sally Menke. Patton Oswalt took note and proposed a tribute on his account.

In other news, a massive storm of photography hit Twitter-Wood over the last 24 hours. It was tough to pick out a winner, but John Travolta fans should enjoy the post from "Weird Al" Yankovic that earned the honor. Check it out along with David Hasselhoff's new "golf cart" and reactions to "The Social Network" and "Catfish" after the jump.

Shia LaBeoufFrankie Muniz was not amused today about a statement from Shia LaBeouf in which the "Wall Street 2" star said that many of his films could have swapped Muniz into his roles and still been hits. It was an odd comment, but Muniz cleared the air with his own thoughts on the matter.

In other tweets, the deaths of Greg Giraldo and Tony Curtis put dampers on a lot of moods. Steve Martin, James Gunn and others contributed to the collective obituaries for the comedian and actor, though Gunn's memories may be pretty unique in the scheme of things. Find out why after the jump along with one volunteer to take Rahm Emanuel's seat in the White House and why Chloe Moretz had to do some trapeze training.
