Hollywood frustrations bubbled up in the Twitter Report today, with Chris Ryall questioning the use of Val Kilmer in the "MacGruber" movie and Mike Choi commenting on the lack of serviceable actors on screen who can speak both English and Korean. These sentiments were tempered by a rave review of Lars Von Trier's "Antichrist" by Dave McKean.
Unlike Hollywood, no one can hate on Brian K. Vaughan today, and Splash Page joins his "Ex Machina" artist Tony Harris in congratulating Vaughan on his new son. You can read those posts after the jump and find out both who's been prepping for dinner with Mark Millar and which comics artist would love to make out with Zoe Saldana.

@TONYFINGHARRIS My good buddy Brian K. Vaughan and his lovely wife Ruth, just had a baby boy!. Life is good.
-Tony Harris, Artist ("Ex Machina," "War Heroes")
@THEHITCHFACTORY So today: Cover for Marvel, some layouts for a massive fight scene in Finale, baby consultants at hospital and dinner with Mark Millar.
-Bryan Hitch, Artist ("The Ultimates," "Captain America: Reborn")
@chris_ryall Why is Val Kilmer in the MacGruber movie? Also, why is anyone?
-Chris Ryall, Publisher ("IDW")
@mikechoi Why can't Hollywood seem to find any actors that speak both English and Korean well? The largest Korean population outside Korea is in LA.
-Mike Choi, Artist ("X-Force," "X23: Target X")
@DaveMcKean Last night's film; ANTICHRIST. Extraordinary cinematic poetry. Lars does it again. Provacative and powerful. One of the best of last year.
-Dave McKean, Writer/Artist ("The Sandman," "Cages")
@joe_hill Wait, the UK just banned drinking games in bars? Is there any reason to even go over there now? Stonehenge is just rocks & we got them here.
-Joe Hill, Writer ("Locke & Key")
@RyanStegman I want to make out with Zoe Saldana. You know, like Spock does.
-Ryan Stegman, Artist ("Incredible Hercules," "Riftwar")
Parting Wisdom for the Day:
@GailSimone Think of how much better Joanie Loves Chachi would have been if Warren Ellis had played Chachi. @realscottbaio is no Warren Ellis!
-Gail Simone, Writer ("Birds of Prey," "Wonder Woman")
