Zachary Quinto may have scared a few "Star Trek" fans when he said he would be stepping away from the franchise for a couple of years. He ran some damage control from his Twitter account today, though, to assure everyone that he would be sticking with his Spock role for the films, just not on anything related to public appearances or side projects.
Meanwhile, in trending topic new, the death of J.D. Salinger hit home for a lot of Twitter-Wood posters today, who contributed memories and first encounters with his masterpiece "Catcher in the Rye." That's the heart of the report today, but read on past the jump, and you'll also find Edgar Wright contemplating a release date for "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" and Michael Ian Black's suggestion for a Michael Cera memoir in Twitter-Wood for January 28, 2010.
