I once went to watch my brother run in the Chicago Marathon (an occasion that saw me using my high school literature class as a navigational system) and standing at mile 26 was somewhat like watching this weekend on the Blogathon: I want to cheer on the people who are struggling to keep their feet moving one step ahead at a time, but, honestly, I also want to just go home.
So I don't blame people for dropping out or not showing up every day -- but those who do now have a commanding lead, as nobody WHAMMYied this week: only PT and Andrew answered, and so the dreaded number 3 answer didn't come up. But nobody gained on anyone, either: the same margin still separates Sith Lord Andrew Leonian (Andrew, come up with something better; I'm using what little creativity I have to make up metaphors for this Blogathon) and PT, who now have nearly 12 times Rusty's score. But remember: the last 10 questions are all WHAMMY! questions, because doing it that way makes the previous 90 questions more or less pointless. Hey, people love it when basketball does that with its regular season, so it'll work here, right?
Today's question, Question 77, worth 50 points, as always, with the last commenter getting 40 points:
What director held joint casting sessions with George Lucas when Lucas cast Star Wars, and what movie was he casting for?
