Rahm Emanuel, ‘Resident Evil: Afterlife’ And ‘Transformers 3′ In Today’s Twitter-Wood

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel became a hot topic right after Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley announced this week that he wouldn’t run for re-election next year. Michael McKean, meanwhile, was insightful enough to ask if Emanuel’s path would trigger a parallel move on the part of his brother Ari, the inspiration for Jeremy Piven’s “Entourage” character.

Elsewhere in Twitter-Wood, movies are being made and released as usual. Tyrese Gibson continued his updates about “Transformers 3,” while Brian Lynch looked ahead to the new “Resident Evil” this weekend, and photos of Nina Dobrev on the “Vampire Diaries” set, Denise Richards in a cheerleader outfit and Gary Sinise thanking his Twitter followers showed up.
