Movie Directors, Writers And Actors On Twitter

Update: You can read a more updated version of this list here.

Iron Man director Jon Favreau recently joined Twitter, and I was going to write a blog post about his entrance, but have decided instead to post a listing of all the writers, directors and actors that I'm aware of on the 140-character micro-blogging world. I've tried to concentrate on working actors over celebrities (for example, I didn't include Britney Spears). I've tried to put everyone in the category that they are best known for. For example, Kevin Smith is better known as a director than actor or writer and Roger Avary is better known as a writer than director (at this point).

So that the list doesn't get too crowded, I'm only going to include actors, writers and directors that have had a major film released (there will be a few exceptions). I'm sure there might be some people I missed (especially in the screenwriter section). If you know of any credited screenwriters, directors or actors that we may have missed, please leave their Twitter names in the comments below.
