Fast FiveTwo days have passed since the world learned that Osama bin Laden has been killed, but the conversation rages on within the Hollywood community -- on Twitter, at least. One star gave some thoughts to the terrorist leader's final regrets, while another comedian wants to deploy the team that killed bin Laden on a different but no less dangerous mission.

Meanwhile, the Tony nominations were announced and "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone's "The Book of Mormon" leads the pack, making one filmmaker a very happy camper. And it turns out that "Fast Five" is capable of more than making money -- it also kills boredom.

Osama bin LadenLate last evening, President Barack Obama announced that Osama bin Laden has been killed by United States forces in an operation conducted in Pakistan. The news set Twitter ablaze immediately, with countless Hollywood icons and celebrities weighing in with their thoughts on the 9/11 architect's death.

Responses from actors, writers and filmmakers alike differed dramatically in terms of how to react to the news. Some comedians, including Dane Cook, approached the announcement with as much comedy as the situation could possibly afford.

Beleaguered "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof even endured yet another insult towards his show's conclusion, this time with a smile. Most surprising of all, it may have been Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson who first brought news of bin Laden's death to Twitter. And, yes, Charlie Sheen said "winning." You knew that was coming.

Larry KingLarry King made history last night by signing off on his last installment of "Larry King Live," but not everyone watching was a huge fan. Actually, there were a few critical grumbles in the feed today, with Greg Grunberg sounding off about Larry, Greg Mottola calling out the MPAA with a disagreement and Damon Lindelof calling out NBC's "The Cape."

Yesterday also brought one of the great accomplishments in trending hashtag use of 2010, however. Patton Oswalt and Jon Hurwitz led the charge their own picks for "Unfairly Maligned Film Characters," and the rest of Twitter just sort of followed along. Check out the whole archive of those posts on Twitter, as well as a couple of my favorites after the jump.

Howard SternSo who in Twitter-Wood is thankful for Howard Stern sticking it out for another five years with Sirius Radio? Well, John Stamos, Neil Patrick Harris and Brent Spiner for starters. Much of our feed breathed a collective sigh of relief this morning when news of Stern's renewed deal broke.

As for Seth Meyers, I don't know how he felt about the Stern announcement, but he was appreciative of Mindy Kaling's congratulatory tweet today after he made headlines as the next White House Correspondents' Association Dinner host. His reaction, along with Greg Mottola on "Superbad 2," Jon Favreau on doing the Soulja Boy dance and David Slade on "Eclipse" await you after the jump

John StamosSooner or later, Fridays are going to require an all-image spinoff column if Twitter-Wood keeps up its current weekly output. Not only did Carlton Cuse get a rare shot of Bill Murray in the wild; a "Twilight" actor expressed fears that he looks too much like Will Smith, and John Stamos snuck another shot off of the "Glee" set.

In addition to Edgar Wright's reaction to "Paranormal Activity 2" today, you'll also find a confession from someone who impersonated Tom Hanks during the "Night of Too Many Stars" fundraiser last night and a "Jackass 3D" micro-review from Eli Roth. If that's still not enough for you, Jerry Bruckheimer revealed another few actors appearing in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides."

Britney Spears on GleeTwitter-Wood mourned the passing of "Bonnie and Clyde" director Arthur Penn today. Penn Jillette, who starred in Penn's "Penn and Teller Get Killed," offered his reactions to the news in a post, as did director Edgar Wright.

In lighter topics, the Britney Spears episode of "Glee" last night generated a lot of buzz; it also generated pictures on John Stamos' account and an intimidated reaction to Jane Lynch's performance from Spears. You'll find those posts and Kirstie Alley's defense of Michael Bolton on "Dancing with the Stars" down below, along with scandalous image from Russell Brand.

Someone finally stood up in Twitter-Wood Tuesday to counter Brett Ratner's rave reviews of "Catfish." You'll have to read on down to find out who it was, but the Monday-Tuesday window in our feed turned out to be a popular one for the critics to show up.

The first episode of the new "Hawaii Five-0" series caught some attention and at least one comparison to "Con Air," while Bristol Palin had fellow flyers clamoring to watch "Dancing With the Stars" at the airport where Patton Oswalt was hanging out. Check out what he thought about that, who wished Bill Murray a happy birthday and who's been getting prepped in case they ever make a Shake Weight movie after the jump.

In case you were wondering how the crew on the set of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" kicks back between takes, producer Jerry Bruckheimer shared a snapshot in his feed today. It's entirely possible that their lunch breaks are more fun than yours.

Meanwhile in New York, a few posts surfaced from the Jay-Z and Kanye West performances this week. Jeremy Piven, as usual, seems to have had a pretty nice view. His post, along with a memory of the late actor Kevin McCarthy, someone who claims not to know what "Halo" is and John Stamos' most recent activities on the "Glee" set appear below.

Photo posts swarmed the Twitter-Wood feed today with James Woods, Michael Madsen, Marlon Wayans and a couple of former "Full House" stars all showing up. Paris Hilton's easily contained the most drama, though, capturing what she said was a wannabe burglar who tried to rob her house only to be hauled away by the police.

Elsewhere, "Vampire Diaries" writer and executive producer Kevin Williamson commented on current events the TV series "True Blood," and if you watch both of them, you may be interested to read what he had to say. Check it out below where you'll also find reactions to "Piranha 3D" and "The Last Exorcism."

Roger Clemens has been trending today after news broke yesterday that he'd been indicted on perjury charges. Marlon Wayans commented on the situation, and Jon Hurwitz just wants everybody to remember the baseball player's role in the movie "Kingpin" before they pass judgment.

It was a festive day in Twitter-Wood otherwise. Wes Craven tweeted from the "Scream 4" set. John Stamos showed off some tattoos, and Elizabeth Banks reviewed Green Day's "American Idiot" musical on Broadway. You can find out if she gave it a thumbs up or thumbs down down below, as well as where Rachelle Lefevre is going for three months and how Rob Zombie says he became God.
