A little help would be appreciated here. The Daily TwitPic this morning comes to us courtesy of Simon Pegg, star of "Shaun of the Dead" and "Star Trek." It's a shot of three guys standing together, not posing per se, but at least looking at the camera. They're three faces that we know: Pegg, Nick Frost and Greg Mottola, who are all working together now on the comedy "Paul."

Simple, right? Wrong. Here's where the confusion comes in. When Pegg tweeted this image yesterday, he included the comment "One of these men has won an Oscar ...." Huh? Does anyone know what he's talking about? Some kind of inside joke? As far as I can figure, none of the three have won an Oscar. So either there's something more to that comment or the men in the picture are not who they appear to be. Anyone care to take a stab at solving this puzzle?

Wait! Edgar Wright figured it out! As he later tweeted to Pegg: "@simonpegg I am guessing it was Nick Frost for Best Supporting Actor at 0.33 in this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AG_xSomDMYk" Read More...

Amanda Bynes isn't a regular visitor on our Twitter-Wood feed, but she pops up from time to time. She's probably best known for her now-finished TV work on the WB series "What I Like About You" and the Nick comedy series "All That." Bynes also had keys roles in "She's the Man" and the 2007 "Hairspray" remake. She's been pretty quiet recently, but you'll next get to see her in "Easy A," a comedy starring Bynes, Emma Stone, Stanley Tucci and "Twilight" star Cam Gigandet

In today's Daily TwitPic you get to see Bynes at the tender age of 6. This was just a few short years before she joined the cast of "All That" in 1996. In the pic, you can see Bynes and her brother Tommy hanging out in what look like barber chairs aboard their father's old Navy ship (not to be confused with an Old Navy ship). Check out the picture after the jump. Read More...

You might not recognize the name Corey Taylor on its own, but you probably know his band, Slipknot. Formed in 1995, the metal band has been going strong since then, with their last album -- released in the summer of 2008 -- even hitting the number one spot on Billboard. You'd think that, after all that time, Taylor would know a little something about being metal.

As you can see in our first Daily TwitPic of 2010, he can't even get his "Devil Horns" hand sign right. Magician/comedian Penn Jillette, who poses for the pic with Taylor, even points out the faux pas in his tweeted description. The thumb should never be visible for proper Devil Horns; Taylor seems to be confusing his sign of the horns with the Shaka hand sign, a traditional greeting amongst surfers. Read More...

This is the time of year that people tend to let themselves go. Starting with the Thanksgiving Day gorge, a lot of folks set their controls to "Party" for the rest of the year, ringing in both the holidays and the new year with the mass consumption of food and spirits. Tomorrow, the party culminates for revelers across the world, as the clock ticks over from 11:59pm on 12/31/09 to 12:00am on 1/1/10.

And David Spade is ready. As you'll see in today's Daily TwitPic, he's got a single bottle of liquor that's large enough to feed an entire party. Gentleman Jack to be precise, a high-end Jack Daniels. Here's a fun fact about JD that I discovered while traveling around the country back in the late '90s: the Jack Daniels distillery is located in Lynchburg, Tennessee, which is a dry county. Meaning you can't actually buy the stuff within a 50-mile radius (roughly-- this is speaking from memory) of where they make it! Read More...

Twitter is more than just a social networking tool. It's also a platform for showcasing your greatest triumphs. Take Reggie Bush. Running back for the New Orleans Saints and 2005 Heisman Trophy winner. His team is a heavy favorite to win the Super Bowl in February. Accomplished guy. Lot of achievements to wave around from that soapbox.

So which does he settle on? A Connect Four win. In today's Daily TwitPic, Bush flaunts his win over Kim Kardashian in the classic Milton Bradley table game. In the micro-blogging equivalent of an over-the-top Touchdown celebration, he even forces Kardashian to tweet the pic from her own feed. No penalties here though... everything's fair game on the Internet. Read More...

Regular Twitter users and fans know quite well that rapper and "Law & Order: SVU" star Ice T is a dedicated video gamer. He's very vocal about his love for interactive experiences, crowing about his latest purchase or his Xbox Live gamertag (it's "Lord 187X") at every opportunity. And more power to him for it, for shining some positive light on the relatively new and frequently embattled medium.

Of course, none of us really know how serious Ice is about his games. We know he's a "Call of Duty" fan, and a big one, but not if he's actually any good. Or we didn't know, anyway. In today's Daily TwitPic, Ice gives a taste of just how honed his skills are. Every multiplayer session in "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2" is followed by an after-action report, detailing a player's score and Accolades (awards for finishing a session with a specific set of requirements). These may be meaningless to you if you've never played the, but take it from a fan: the Accolades that Ice scored here are hard to secure. Read More...

The outpouring of grief for Brittany Murphy, the "8 Mile" star who was tragically taken from us by a heart attack at the too-young age of 32, continues to flood the Internet. The majority of celebrities have chosen Twitter as the platform for sharing remembrances of their fallen friend. And I have to give a special shout-out to you commenters here; there's always the risk with the Internet that some random jerk is going to come along and say nasty things from the safety of their anonymity. The response to Murphy's death here however has been nothing but respectful and genuine, and I thank you all for that.

Today's Daily TwitPic comes from Alyssa Milano, by way of Twitter user @dustinpjones. At some point, Milano joined Murphy on a USO tour, to entertain the troops overseas. Hit the jump to see them both here having the time of their lives. Read More...

Of course Neil Gaiman discovered a zombie. Who would you expect to find such a thing? This is the guy behind such freaky works as the "Sandman" comic book series, "NeverWhere," "Coraline," "MirrorMask" and more. You've gotta figure he already walks through his day seeing crazy s--t wherever he looks.

The only difference is that today he has photographic proof! Gaiman was out walking his dog the other day when he snapped a random picture of it in the snow, which he tweeted with the text "Walking the semi-invisible dog," as if he didn't notice the human hand protruding from the ground. Roughly 10 minutes later he re-tweeted the pic with the text "What hand...? Oh. That hand. I didn't notice." That's what happens when you make a living crafting rich, engrossing fantasy worlds. Hit the jump for some undead action in today's Daily TwitPic. Read More...

"New Moon" is a few weeks out of the gate now, so it's probably safe to talk spoilers. Especially since many of you probably read the book before seeing the movie anyway. That said, spoiler alert. In the movie, Alex Meraz plays Paul, one of the Quileute teenagers making up the so-called Wolf Pack, the group of shape-shifting werewolves who help ease Jacob (Taylor Lautner) into his new existence when he himself begins to change shape. Paul has a little scrap with Jacob, both in canine form, when Bella (Kristen Stewart) gives the former a good, hard smack for turning the latter away from her.

What all of this means is that Meraz is a fan of the wolves. He'd better be, considering how the "New Moon" role raised his profile in the acting world. Today's Daily TwitPic illustrates just what a big fan he is of canis lupus. I certainly wouldn't want to rock that tee... Read More...

Y'all know Roger Ebert, right? Noted film critic from Chicago. Used to be on TV. Well Mr. Ebert's been around quite a bit, working the scene, schmoozing with celebrities, hitting the festival circuit and so on. Yesterday, he apparently took a dive into his archives and dug out this little gem of an image for today's Daily TwitPic.

Hit the rewind button to the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. It wasn't exactly a magical year for movies, with hits like "X2: X-Men United" and "Finding Nemo" balanced by the latter two "Matrix" movies, "Terminator 3" and the third "Lord of the Rings" movie (let's face it-- that one kind of drags on a bit). There was also "Masked and Anonymous," a little independent film written by and starring Bob Dylan and an ensemble cast that included, among others, Penelope Cruz. It wasn't very good. Ebert himself gave it only half a star. But he appreciated the players enough to snap this photo. Read More...
