Kevin Smith hit his Twitter account hard today in response to a comment made by Neil Patrick Harris about Smith's pal and frequent collaborator Jason Mewes. The discussion is summarized as neatly as possible in the three retweets I picked out, but you'd be well served to sift through the questions Smith has been answering all day. NPH chimed in later in the day on his own account with an apology.
In other Twitter-Wood exchanges today, Edgar Wright and Bryan Lee O'Malley teased their unreleased trailer for "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" and Brian Lynch and Diablo Cody pondered a mad plot to craft an "Empire Records" sequel. Check out those posts below along with a shot of Amanda Bynes at 9 years old and a run-in between Terry Gilliam and Salman Rushdie. I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter-Wood report for December 4, 2010.
Twitter Pic of the Day:
-Amanda Bynes, Actress ("She's the Man," "Sydney White")
Jason Mewes pt. 1: @ThatKevinSmith (2/2) "filmed him doing crazy shit." I'm Mewes' friend, telling a first-person account; NPH denies not only Mewes' vocation, but his value.
-Kevin Smith, Actor/Writer/Director ("Clerks," "Mallrats")
Jason Mewes pt. 3: @ActuallyNPH @ThatKevinSmith Didn't realize the upset my words caused. Looked back at what you said, and I concur. Ignorance on my part. Apologies.
-Neil Patrick Harris, Actor ("Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay," "Starship Troopers")
Trailer pt. 1: @radiomaru I do not have a Scott Pilgrim trailer. I'm not hiding it, it isn't here in my pants, I haven't seen it, it doesn't exist.
-Bryan Lee O'Malley, Writer ("Scott Pilgrim vs. The World")
Trailer pt. 2: @edgarwright @radiomaru I'd like to add that a 4D Scott Pilgrim trailer was attached to all Avatar prints. Maybe you didn't have right the glasses on.
-Edgar Wright, Director ("Shaun of the Dead," "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World")
-James Gunn, Writer/Director/Actor ("Slither," "Super")
-Roger Ebert, Critic/Writer ("Beyond the Valley of the Dolls," "Up!")
"Empire Records 2" pt. 1: @BrianLynch With all the straight to video sequels being made, why hasn't someone attempted an EMPIRE RECORDS follow-up? I wanna do it.
-Brian Lynch, Writer/Director ("Puss in Boots," "Big Helium Dog")
"Empire Records 2" pt. 2: @diablocody @BrianLynch Coyote Shivers in "Empire Records II: Sugar High."
-Diabo Cody, Writer ("Juno," "Jennifer's Body")
