The defense in Silvio Berlusconi's increasingly bizarre trial have submitted a list of witnesses they'd like to call, including the Italian foreign minister, "a bevy of showgirls" . . . and George Clooney, who allegedly attended one of Berlusconi's infamous parties with his girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis. This odd assortment leads us to wonder who else is on the defense's list. Below, some ideas:
We're pretty sure this trial is actually just a cover for the secret shooting of Ocean's Fourteen, and obviously Danny Ocean needs his Rusty Ryan. Berlusconi will play new character Skeevy Skeevarino, a lecherous man who distracts female security guards by leering at them.
Maybe those bunga bunga parties were actually "bongo bongo."
Never say never.
This could actually happen.
She's got guest, and a show — surely she counts as a showgirl.
Berlusconi and The Situation have a lot in common. Then again, support from these folks might not be good for anyone's defense.
She has to be involved somehow.
