‘Hunger Games’ Casting, Douglas Adams Remembered And Osama’s Killer Revealed In Today’s Twitter-Wood

Fans haven’t been universally appreciative of casting news on “The Hunger Games” thus far, with the possible exception being Jennifer Lawrence’s attachment as Katniss. But here’s something that everyone — or, at least, a “Lost” architect — can get behind: Woody Harrelson is on board as Haymitch Abernathy!

Many members of the Twitter-Wood community spent today observing the 10th anniversary of “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” author Douglas Adams’ untimely death, while still others remain obsessed with the demise of Osama bin Laden… so much so that one actor was not really able to unmask the Al Qaedea terrorist’s killer.

I’m @roundhoward and this is Twitter-Wood for May 11, 2011.
