Federal officials are hoping film director James Cameron can help them come up with ideas on how to stop the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
The "Avatar" and "Titanic" director was among a group of scientists and other experts who met Tuesday with officials from the Environmental Protection Agency and other federal agencies for a brainstorming session on stopping the massive oil leak.
The Canadian-born Cameron is considered an expert on underwater filming and remote vehicle technologies. "Avatar" and "Titanic" are the two highest-grossing films of all time.
*facepalm* Funny thing is, I heard they asked Michael Bay first. What's that, Mike -- we should just blow it up? Aaaah, in slow-motion. Yes that makes perfect sense (somebody get James Cameron on the phone).
Thanks to lil co., who agrees all the Gulf of Mexico wildlife should try filing some sort of class-action lawsuit.
