"Twilight" star Peter Facinelli plays a vampire doctor in the Stephenie Meyer series, but he's also a doctor in another life. Facinelli has a steady gig entertaining small screen viewers on the TV series "Nurse Jackie." I haven't seen the show, but he's apparently an ace doctor in that series as well.
As you might expect, Facinelli spends a lot more time on the TV set than he does shooting "Twilight" movies. However, the pressures of shooting and promoting a movie keep him on the go very frequently. Which is why he's seeing things, or so he indicates in today's Daily TwitPic. Can anyone identify who the pilot in this pic is? It's not Facinelli, I know that much. Read More...
If you've been keeping up with Twitter-Wood for the past few days, then you know that "Twilight" stars Edi Gathegi and Christian Serratos have been getting up to something. Together that is. It's not really clear what, but there's been talk of gummi bears, jelly beans, rubber gloves and casual nudity.
Whatever they've been doing, they seem to be enjoying it. In today's Daily TwitPic, the duo unleash their Blue Steel look on the world. As anyone who has seen the movie "Zoolander" knows, Blue Steel is one of superstar model Derek Zoolander's trademark looks. So whatever Gathegi and Serratos have been up to together, their pose-striking allows us to infer that its taken them to some pretty weird places. Hit the jump to see for yourself. Read More...
For those of you following the Edi Gathegi and Christian Serratos' exchanges of the last few days, there are two more to share today, including a photo proving that the two "New Moon" performers were able to connect. Gathegi may have even had to naked for the occasion, according to Serratos' account, but don't worry. The picture is totally SFW.
Tom Hanks stepped into the recording studio for "Toy Story 3," meanwhile, and the film's diligent director Lee Unkrich documented their their session. Check out all of those posts after the jump where you'll also find Simon Pegg's beef with Jar Jar Binks, Kat Dennings' new rule about seal impression etiquette and what Brian Lynch wants to see happen with the fourth "Twilight" movie. It's all in the Twitter-Wood report for December 10, 2009. Read More...
FROM MTV.COM: "Twilight" fans are notoriously fickle when it comes to the actors chosen to bring their favorite Stephenie Meyer character to life. In fact, it's now the stuff of "Twilight" legend that following the announcement that Robert Pattinson's would be portraying brooding vampire Edward Cullen, online petitions circled feverishly, decrying the British actor's participation in the saga. A similar uproar occurred last July, when just weeks before production was to begin on the third "Twilight" installment "Eclipse," Bryce Dallas Howard replaced Rachelle Lefevre as villainous vampire Victoria due to scheduling conflicts. Howard revealed to MTV News that the prospect of taking over the role Lefevre originated in both "Twilight" and "New Moon" was a bit daunting.
"It was actually a really unfortunate circumstance where the actress who everyone really cared deeply about, who has done an amazing job in this role, was unavailable," Howard said, explaining her last-minute casting. "They were looking for someone to fill that slot. It was right before production actually happened, so of course there was intimidation there and feeling a huge responsibility to do my best."

FROM HOLLYWOOD CRUSH: Tired of vampires and werewolves yet? So may be Hollywood, where there seems to be a scramble to figure out what kind of fantastical creature will be the next big thing. A few months ago, we thought faeries were taking over. But now The Hollywood Reporter is claiming “angels have been identified as the next trend in young-adult fiction.”
Evidence of this supposed craze comes with the announcement that Disney is bringing Lauren Kate’s new young-adult novel “Fallen” to the big screen. The book, which is the first of a four-part series, involves a love triangle between a teen girl and two guys, both of whom are fallen angels.
Sounds like “Twilight” with cherubim, and I can already envision the “Team Daniel” and “Team Cam” t-shirts aligned to each of the angelic suitors. Angels as love interests is hardly a new concept, of course, with films like “The Bishop’s Wife,” that film’s remake, “The Preacher’s Wife,” “Date With an Angel,” “Wings of Desire” and that film’s remake, “City of Angels” all being early precursors to “Fallen.”

When we heard that the studio behind "Twilight" would be producing a biopic about Vlad III, we naturally assumed there'd be some reference to the 15th century ruler's vampire legacy (Vlad the Impaler is the inspiration for the Dracula myth). But according to the writer of "Vlad," there will be no mention of the bloodsucking reputation made famous in Bram Stoker's classic novel. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Charlie Hunnam, who also stars on the hit TV series "Sons of Anarchy," admits it was a stipulation in the selling of his script that vampirism not be involved.
Instead, Hunnam describes the film as something between "Braveheart" and "300," though more historically accurate than the latter. "Vlad" will depict the full life of the Wallachian prince, through all his battles with the Ottoman Empire and the development of his mythological notoriety as Vlad the Impaler. Mostly though, Hunnam says the epic will focus on Dracula as a young man. Read More...
"New Moon" stars Christian Serratos and Edi Gathegi appear to be taking their conversations about gummi bear attacks off Twitter and over to a private phone conversation, for whatever that's worth. There may be some obstacles between them and this fated phone call, but they sound like they want to strike out against the odds and make it work.
In more substantive tweets, Paris Hilton has a beef with the delayed police response she says her sister Nicky received after her home was broken into Tuesday. Check out what she posted after the jump along with David Wain's take on Tiger Woods' situation, some behind-the-scenes looks at "Toy Story 3" and the "Up in the Air" DVD and James Gunn's cinematographer's impressive gear.

FROM MTV.COM: As MTV News continues its look back at the year in movies, honoring everyone and everything from Ryan Reynolds to "Watchmen," we know that for so many of you out there, 2009 was all about two simple words: "New Moon"
Throughout the year, as we chatted with the vampire franchise's stars, we wanted to give fans a chance to interact with them too. That's why we asked the actors reader-submitted questions every chance we got. Here are our picks for the best of our "Twilight" fan Q&As.

Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" may be inheriting an entirely unexpected fanbase, according to an exchange today between creator Bryan Lee O'Malley and "New Moon" actress Anna Kendrick. Apparently O'Malley has seen his comic creation cited repeatedly with Kendrick's name attached more prominently than both his and Wright's.
One of the largest showings of single-topic tweets I've seen in Twitter-Wood since the death of Michael Jackson occurred yesterday afternoon with the appearance of a rainbow over Los Angeles. In the face of a week that's been dominated by Tiger Woods gossip, this was probably a welcome shift. New problems seem to have appeared, meanwhile, for John Stamos, who let his publicist step in and tweet a statement today following an extortion investigation. As any Twitter-Wood followers know, Stamos loves taking pictures with his fans, and it sounds like someone tried to blackmail Stamos with such images for unknown reasons. Check out those posts after the jump along with a behind-the-scenes look at "Toy Story 3." I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter-Wood report for December 8, 2009. Read More...
Twitter-Wood had plenty to celebrate this weekend, with a mini "Full House" reunion between John Stamos and Candace Cameron to Brett Ratner's wrap on his new Mariah Carey video and Greg Mottola's pre-release praise for Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World."
Elsewhere, "Eclipse" actor BooBoo Stewart is still making his photography rounds, this time picking Hugh Jackman's nose -- and Wolverine looks shockingly comfortable with the pose. Check out those posts after the jump along with Steve Agee's porn benefit surprise and Alex Meraz's stolen jacket shocker. It's all in the Twitter-Wood report for December 7, 2009. Read More...
