While talking to the press about starring in The Last Days of American Crime and how Clash of the Titans 2 will be shot in 3D, Worthington postulated on what might be in the 8 extra minutes James Cameron is adding to Avatar for the film's August 27th re-release.

"I wish we added eight hours," Worthington said. "I think the first cut I saw was about six hours long... There's a couple of extra hunting scenes. There's a much-speculated and blogged sex scene everyone keeps f--king harping on about. To be honest, I think everyone's going to be disappointed that's it's not blue porn... But there's a lot of other character parts. Giovanni [Ribisi] stuff and Stephen Lang stuff. So it's up to Jim. I know Jim would only release it if it enhanced the story by putting it back in."

What about the extra scenes that took place on Earth?

"We shot all that. When we first saw all that, it didn't [work]. You just want to get to the planet. It's kind of a slow burn. Jim always wanted it to be a slow burn start so that you would adjust to your eyes and adjust the world, but it because too much of slow burn. It was like, "hurry the f--k up, man."

All right, when can we expect Avatar 2?

"Avatar 2 will be whenever Jim decides to write it. I think he's in Thailand at the moment or trying to save the Gulf. But I'm sure he's going to put pen to paper soon."
