SICKO director Michael Moore wants Fidel Castro to be his special guest at the Oscars on Sunday (24Feb08) - insisting he would be a great "ratings grabber". Moore's Oscar nominated documentary on the health-care industry was partly shot in Cuba - so he wants the former politician to attend the ceremony to honour the country. Castro announced his retirement as president last week ending half a century of autocratic rule. Moore says, "I got some great news today because I was trying to figure out how I was going to get Castro into the Oscars and for me he resigns today so he can come to L.A. and go as my guest and perhaps give the acceptance speech. "As long as he keeps it under five hours. I'm telling you, that's got to be a ratings grabber. Can you imagine him? Showing up? If I could talk to (Oscar Producer) Gil Cates and maybe get Castro in a dance number at the beginning of the show? Great."
