Schindler's Slave

Sorry, going for the attention grabbing headlines again.  I guess what I'm trying to say is, even Obama himself must be getting tired of how he's affecting the culture.  For example, they wanted to make 12 Years a Slave eight years ago, but somehow they couldn't sell the idea.  But even more curious than that... and I don't want to sound like a JFK assassination nut here, but the golden anniversary of that tragic event is fast approaching, and Paul Giamatti was recently seen on The Daily Show flogging his new movie Parkland.  He also happens to have a part in 12 Years a Slave along with Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt, who are also in a little movie called The Counselor together!  As far as I know, Giamatti's not in The Counselor.  He's pretty cool, but not that cool.
Anyway, this week's performers.  Gravity is still on top at #1, followed by Tom Hanks' debut, Captain Phillips... or the sequel to Volunteers, as I prefer to think of it.  Also, Machete Kills does way better than the original, but the third installment's probably going to happen nonetheless.  Let's see, Lindsay Lohan was in the first, Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen in the second... who's the latest and greatest super-burned-out mega-train wreck of a celebrity that they can put in the third?  Suggestions?
