Veteran’s Day, ‘Precious’ And ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’ In Today’s Twitter-Wood

Veteran’s Day brought no shortage of veteran appreciation today in Twitter-Wood, prompting thanks and memories from across the board, as well as a personal note from “Twilight” actor Gil Birmingham.

Meanwhile, Jason Schwartzman’s on his way to the NYC debut of “Fantastic Mr. Fox,” which as a Wes Anderson follower, I am anxious to see myself this weekend. Another new release, “Precious,” really got a hold of Tyrese Gibson, who said the film’s been keeping him awake. Check out their thoughts along with pictures from Peter Facinelli and John Stamos and a Henry Winkler autograph to be jealous of after the jump. It’s all in the Twitter-Wood report for November 11, 2009.
