Avatar Director James Cameron Scripting New Ending to Oil Spill

Originally posted 06/02/2010 07:45AM

Will the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico have a Hollywood ending?

James Cameron, the director of Avatar and Titanic, joined scientists and other experts at a meeting with U.S. officials Tuesday in Washington to come up with possible fixes for the leak, which so far has resisted oil company BP's attempts to plug it.

The Canadian-born Oscar winner, 55, is an ocean-technology buff and has been an expert in underwater filming and manned submersible vehicles since his pioneering work on The Abyss in the 1980s.

Sigourney Weaver, James Cameron's Blue Avatar Aliens Go Green

Originally posted 04/18/2010 09:30AM

The aliens may be blue in Avatar, the highest-grossing film of all-time, but director James Cameron and star Sigourney Weaver are using their movie to spread a message that's proudly green.

The accomplished pair hosted the Eco Warrior Training competition, presented Saturday at Brooklyn Technical High School by the Internet search engine Bing. Local high school students vied for $12,000 in scholarships delivering speeches on "An Environmental Lesson I Learned From Avatar and How to Apply It In My Community, New York City, America and/or the World."

"As a New Yorker, I'm thrilled to be here to meet you, to talk to you about all of us becoming eco-warriors because our planet needs it. I got involved in Avatar, and I loved the experience. I loved the director, but I also really wanted to play Grace Augustine, who's this kick-ass woman scientist," Weaver, 60, told the more than 300 cheering teens in the audience.

After Neil Patrick Harris brought down the house with a musical number heralding the arrival of this year's Academy Awards co-hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin, the guys wasted no time cracking up the audience – and picking on the night's biggest names.

Nobody was safe – not Meryl Streep, Zac Efron nor Matt Damon – from Baldwin and Martin's repartee. Here are some of the duo's best lines:

• "[Best Actress nominee] Gabourey [Sidibe] and I have something in common: In our first movies we were both born a poor black child." – Steve Martin, joking about his beloved comedy The Jerk

• "She was so pleased to be nominated with him, she sent him a beautiful gift basket with a timer." – Steve Martin, on Best Director winner Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker), who was nominated against her ex-husband, James Cameron (Avatar)
