Two days in a row that I get to start things off with "Star Wars" posts? What a great way to start the week.

Yesterday you got a look at how "Empire Strikes Back" would play as a silent-era film. Today is all about steampunk. "Castle" star Nathan Fillion is a friend to geeks everywhere. This is largely because of his connection to the Whedonverse. Fillion played Captain Hammer in Joss Whedon's Internet sensation, "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog," he starred in the short-lived but much-loved TV series "Firefly" (and subsequent movie "Serenity") and he even enjoyed a brief stint on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Yeah, fanfolk love the guy.

One thing that Fillion has never been professionally connected with is "Star Wars." Doesn't mean he's not a fan though. The rest of us can envy him now too, as one enterprising young enthusiast gifted him with a steampunk lightsaber. One of the cooler pieces of fan art I've seen, no question. Hit the jump and decide for yourself. Read More...

This has definitely been a week for the ladies in Daily TwitPic posts. Or the past two days, at any rate. As much as I'm a fan, I don't think you gathered masses of female readers out there are swooning over Neil Gaiman and Kevin Smith. Or maybe you are, who knows. Yesterday switched gears, giving you your first glimpse of Britney Spears on the set of "Glee" with one of the show's stars.

Today brings another lovely pairing. Celebutante Paris Hilton ran into pop singer Brandy at the popular Los Angeles restaurant Katsuya. And of course the two couldn't resist the opportunity to sidle up to one another and flash their prettiest smiles for a photo op. Paris even called Brandy "sweet." How nice. Start your Friday off right, with two beautiful women, in today's Daily TwitPic. Read More...

Perhaps you've heard that pop princess Britney Spears is going to appear in an episode of the coming season of "Glee"? She really is. Fans are delighted. There have already been Lady Gaga and Madonna episodes-- it was only a matter of time before Spears got her day. She steps things up though by actually appearing in the episode. The shoot happened already or is underway, but in either case Spears tweeted a photo of her bespectacled self from the set yesterday. You can find it after the jump as today's Daily TwitPic.

I have to wonder where "Glee" will go in its third season. Which musicians and musicals will it tap? Slayer? "South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut"? That would get me watching the show, no question. I would pay anything to watch Jane Lynch growl her way through "Hammer Smashed Face." Read More...

Never trust the birds. Alfred Hitchcock knew that. He tried to warn us even. Did we listen? No. They're descended from dinosaurs, people. Dinosaurs! Those beady little eyes, they gleam with a hunger for human flesh.

That's probably why today's Daily TwitPic features Neil Gaimain trying to commune with one. A lorikeet, if his associated tweet is accurate. This is the guy who wrote "The Sandman" and "American Gods," so it's not surprising that he's trying to charm a tropical bird into doing his bidding. Amusingly, Gaiman and Kevin Smith both tweeted the photo, which suggests that Smith was the shooter and they were probably dining together. Does this mean that the "Cop Out" director is in on Gaiman's plan to take over the world with his tropical bird armies? Read More...

"The Expendables" is out in theaters today! Writer/director/star Sylvester Stallone's throwback to '80s action is packed with stars. Jason Statham. Jet Li. Mickey Rourke. DOLPH LUNDGREN. (that's not a typo-- every letter in Dolph's name is as important as the one before it) There are also a couple of notable cameos, from Stallone's fellow action stars of old Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Their time in the movie is short, but see that trio together on screen for the first time... it's something special.

Schwarzenegger has been absent from the movies world for a long time of course, ever since he became California's Gubernator. He's been upping his profile more and more recently, leading many to believe that the former action icon will be returning to acting when his term of office ends next year. He certainly seems to be enjoying himself in "The Expendables." Stallone told MTV as much in a recent interview. And after the jump you can see the two having some fun together in today's Daily TwitPic. Read More...

Talk about a headline writing itself. You'll understand when you see today's Daily TwitPic.

I actually saw "Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World" last night with MTV Splash Page editor Rick Marshall. It's a week of tough choices for guys going to the movies, between Pilgrim's video game-fueled frenzy and the testosterone-drenched action of Sylvester Stallone's ensemble throwback, "The Expendables." My recommendation? Make it a double-feature weekend. It's impossible to pick one or the other, so just choose both.

The pic after the jump, tweeted by Mark Webber (who plays Stephen Stills in the movie), is better seen than described. It's basically "Pilgrim" star Michael Cera goofing off on set. But it's a bizarre moment in the young actor's life, forever captured on digital film and archived on the Internet for future generations to puzzle over. Read More...

Russell Brand hopped on Twitter yesterday to show off his lovely new bride, the big prize he walked away with after his weekend appearance at the Teen Choice Awards. She's certainly a... looker? I wonder how Katy Perry will react when she hears the news...

Wait. That is Katy Perry! I'm not sure this new look really works for her. Then again, Brand has proven in the past that he's into some weird stuff. Just look at how he reacted when he met "Sesame Street"'s Elmo on the streets of New York City. The true story here is that Perry appeared at the TCAs over the weekend as one of the presenters, dressed as a nerd. Or, more accurately, dressed the way you see her in today's Daily TwitPic, which many are classifying as "nerd." What if she was just supposed to be an awkward high schooler...?

No. That's full-on nerd. Read More...

The word of the day is...

WEIRD

There's nothing inherently bizarre about today's Daily TwitPic, posted after the jump. It's the joining of two random personalities like Pee-Wee Herman and Lorenzo Lamas that boggles the mind. The duo partied together at the 70th Anniversary Sturgis Rally. Here they are the morning after, looking surprisingly perky and ready for a day of motorcycle races.

Weird. (AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!) Read More...

That Russell Brand. Does anyone ever really know what he's going to do next? I don't even think he does.

Today's Daily TwitPic captures Brand in the moment of doing something unexpected. Unexpected and terribly, horribly wrong. Poor Elmo. The lovable, red "Sesame Street" character is notoriously ticklish... but my guess is that even he is a little appalled by what happens in the picture after the jump. I don't even have to guess; you can see the look of horror on his face, which is pretty impressive considering that it's an inanimate mask (sorry kids, it is).

I warn you: those with fond memories of the street named Sesame are in for a shock. It might change you. It might leave you broken. It will definitely disturb you. But it's also really, really funny. Read More...

Christopher Mintz-Plasse is probably enjoying the home video release of "Kick-Ass" this week, the underrated May superhero flick in which he starred alongside Chloe Moretz and Aaron Johnson. He's also hard at work though, on Craig Gillespie's upcoming remake of the '80s vampire horror flick, "Fright Night." Yesterday, he tweeted an image -- today's Daily TwitPic -- which he claims shows some of his makeup for the movie; Mintz-Plasse will play the villainous bloodsucker Evil Ed.

I'm... not sure I get it though. Maybe it's just the length of time its been since I had anything to do with "Fright Night," but... Ed didn't look like that. Right? Is this a joke? Because, you know, Mintz-Plasse trades in the funny. I just don't see the connection here. Can somebody help me out? Something I'm forgetting from "Fright Night"? Read More...
