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.
They failed to mention “The Abyss”, so at least the man has more oil industry expertise than anybody else these brainiacs can call in.
In other news, Tom Hanks has been called in to consult with Gen. Petraeus about Afghanistan, and Ben Affleck has been tapped to direct the space program.< /sarcasm>
