For today's Daily TwitPic I needed to consult an expert. My taste in entertainment ranges all over the map. I love "The Simpsons" and "The Wire." "Survivor" is a weekly stop-in for me (AMAZING this season), as is "Fringe." "Star Wars" is my crack. But with all of those varied interests, I've never found the time to bring "Dr. Who" into my life, the longest-running sci-fi TV series in the world.

Luckily, MTV Splash Page editor Rick Marshall is a Whovian, the "Who" equivalent of a Trekkie (or is it Trekker?). So when I set eyes on today's TwitPic, Rick was the man I turned to for help. The salt shaker-looking thing pictured with James Moran ("Girl Number 9" writer/director) is called a Dalek. It is NOT a robot. It is in fact a member of a brutal alien race which Rick likened to outer space Nazis. Still looks like a salt shaker to me though. Enjoy the out of this world pic. Read More...

The Daily TwitPic for this morning is very cool, one of those unusual works of short-lived art that you only see around Halloween. Some crafty fan of "Boondock Saints," the sequel for which --"Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day" -- hits theaters this Friday, took a blade to a pumpkin and carved out a loving tribute to the cult classic. The results are pretty outstanding. So much so that Sean Patrick Flanery re-tweeted the work out to his many followers.

If you're a fan of pumpkin art, be sure to keep reading Hollywood Crush all this week. Fans of "Twilight" have been challenged to take a crack at creating the best "Twi"-themed "Rob O'Lantern" that they can, with impressive results so far from finalists one and two. And of course, hit the jump right here to check out the crazy "Boondock"-themed work below. Read More...

Back in September, word emerged that Edward Norton, star of "The Incredible Hulk," would be participating in this year's New York City Marathon (sponsored by ING) on November 1. What's more, he'd be joined on the run by a trio of Maasai warriors in support of the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust. The plan is for these four to lead a group of 30 runners through the 26.2 mile foot race.

As you might imagine, this sort of undertaking requires a considerable amount of training. Lots of people, your Movies Blog editor for one, are huffing and puffing after less than one mile. Imagine the effort required to sustain oneself through 26 miles. Today's Daily TwitPic shows us Norton and his Maasai companions prepping for that effort with some meditative yoga exercises. Stay Zen, y'all. Read More...

Our old Daily TwitPic pal John Stamos is back today. He's been absent for the past few weeks, it's true. A guy like Stamos is never truly gone though; Jesse Katsopolis will always, always be there, whether he likes it or not.

The pic you'll find after the jump is a blast from the past. I'm not too up on my celebrity power couples, but Stamos used to date actress Demi Moore if the Internet is to be believed. Moore is currently married to Ashton Kutcher while Stamos continues to enjoy a bachelor's life after his 2005 divorce, but one would imagine they're still close if Stamos is posting pics like this. And his tweeted message, to "enjoy today," is one we could all stand to take to heart. See the sepia-toned old days of Stamos and Moore after the jump. Read More...

UPDATE: @MTVMoviesBlog Twitter follower letsdance24 explained the origin of Bower's sign: "the poster is related to the lyrics of his band's song "Venice", only they changed it to 'Rome'..." So there you have it. Thanks letsdance24!!

I need your expertise today, Twilighters. The morning's Daily TwitPic has me stumped. It originates from Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays Volturi vampire Caius in "New Moon." You can see him in full regalia in our flipbook gallery.

Now usually I can figure out these cryptic TwitPics. This one seems directly targeted at insiders however. There's not much to it, really. Bower holding up a colorful message scrawled on some oak tag. I'm guessing that it's going to make at least a small contingent of fans very happy. The message reads: "Jamie, we sold it all for the price of your kiss in... Rome." Huh? Anyone? Bueller? Explanations appreciated. Read More...

This morning's Daily TwitPic brings together a talented trio of performers into one mildly disturbing image. Will Ferrell hardly needs any introduction. The "Saturday Night Live" alum exists somewhere in the suburbs of pop culture's nerve center. It's been awhile since he had an "Anchorman"-level success, but his fans remain numerous.

Standing off on the right side of the pic is veteran actor Charles Napier. Here's a guy that puts the "working" into "working actor." He has 190 screen credits in film and TV according to IMDB, including roles in classics like "The Silence of the Lambs," "The Blues Brothers" and -- a personal favorite -- "The Cable Guy" (one of Jim Carrey's cop buddies). Standing between the two men is Ken Jeong, who had a solid summer with notable appearances in "The Hangover" and -- as you can tell from the writing on his chest -- "The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard," which Napier also appeared in.

Eli Roth's performance in "Inglourious Basterds" may not have been the best of the bunch, but his character -- Donny Donowitz, aka "The Bear Jew" -- is certainly the most unforgettable. He's the strong, silent type mostly, but with wide swaths of crazy thrown in to keep the Nazis on their toes. Sure, all of the Basterds are crazy. But Donowitz's is a special blend; even with no more than 10 or 20 lines of dialogue, he distinguishes himself as one of the movie's most unforgettable characters.

As such, you can expect to see a lot of Bear Jews walking around next Saturday, on Halloween. It's not a terribly difficult costume to prepare for and it comes with the added bonus of giving you an excuse to carry a baseball bat around for the night. Why that's a good thing is anyone's guess. Just please make sure not to hit people with said bat. The toughest part of a Bear Jew costume is the accessorizing. Luckily, Roth has his Twitter followers -- among them, the MTV Twitter-Wood feed -- covered. Today's Daily TwitPic serves up a guide to giving your Bear Jew costume that authentic feel. Read More...

Peter Facinelli has been getting a lot of attention from Daily TwitPic lately. It's his fault though (not that that's a bad thing). The guy has really taken to Twitter as a micro-blogging tool, giving fans glimpses into his daily happenings. And let's face it: when you spend your week on the set of the next "Twilight" movie, a lot of people are going to be interested in what you're up to.

For this morning's Daily TwitPic, Facinelli proves that "Eclipse" doesn't have such a closed set. How secure could it be if he's snapping pictures of his biggest fan? He also gives a follow shout to @I_Love_NY in his tweet, something I can wholeheartedly second as a fellow New Yorker. Hit the jump to check out Carlisle Cullen's biggest fan on the "Eclipse" set.

Today's Daily TwitPic has me mildy disturbed. You all know Tom Felton of course. He's Draco Malfoy, boy wizard and all-around rascal in the "Harry Potter" series. He's kind of a jerk in the movies, and he plays the role well. In real life though, or at least in his micro-blogging Twitter life, he comes off as an okay enough chap.

The pic he posted yesterday though... it's a little weird. Even he admits it. It comes from some magazine spread he did, and the getup they have him wearing is downright odd. Felton looks like some strange pirate/S&M enthusiast. The pose he's struck and the expression on his face don't help any. Have we found our replacement for Jack Sparrow in the post-"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" world? Hit the jump to see for yourself. Read More...

For today's Daily TwitPic I am once again overruling Warmoth's Twitter Pic of the Day selection from yesterday. I may not be well-versed in my "Twilight," but even I can tell this is something all of you Twilighters will appreciate.

Peter Facinelli, better known as Carlisle Cullen, patriarch of the vegetarian vampire clan, is a Twitter-Wood regular. He's aware of the rabid fanbase that's out there and he feeds into it, frequently tweeting updates from the set, photos and all sorts of other fan-serving goodies. I'm not exactly sure where the pic he posted yesterday comes from, but it looks a lot like a still to me. There's even a caption-- Carlisle Cullen in the 1800s. As you might expect, it's a look at Facinelli clothed in period garb. Hit the jump to check it out. Read More...
