Mere hours after Michael Jackson's death in Los Angeles, nearly everyone in the Twitter-Wood feed has already logged on to tweet their reactions to the loss of the King of Pop. While details surrounding this evening's events are still coming to light, I wanted to assemble a special report that demonstrates how big of a role his contributions from "Thriller" to "Captain EO" have played in the popular culture we all share.
Below are the sincere thoughts and responses to today's news as tweeted by "Twilight" cast members, directors, and other Hollywood luminaries, including Mandy Moore, John Cusack, Miley Cyrus and many, many others.
