Zelda Rubinstein, The Underwear Bomb And James Cameron In Today’s Twitter-Wood

News that “Poltergeist” actress Zelda Rubinstein has been taken off of life support didn’t go unnoticed by horror movie fans in the Twitter-Wood community this week. The sad revelation caught the attention of both Richard Kelly and Jeff Katz (on his birthday, nonetheless), and I definitely echo those sentiments to her family.

In other posts, attempted underwear bomb from last week is still a trending topic among tweeters. Kevin Nealon was among those contemplating the ongoing investigation yesterday. Catch those thoughts after the jump along with Brian Lynch on Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner, Christina Applegate and Emmy Rossum on James Cameron’s work in “Avatar” and more in the Twitter-Wood report for December 30, 2009.
