District 9 is big news and has created a lot of buzz for SA. But when it’s all over and the aliens go home, we've got a few celebs we'd like to send with them.

Julius Malema
Maybe he'll respond better to alien intelligence, because he's not really putting the human kind to good use.

Steve Hofmeyr
Because there aren't any more human women left for him to have sex with.

Angus Buchan
His evangelical ways scare us – leave our men alone! However, the aliens lost their queen and they need a new pack leader. Hope they like potatoes…

Gordon Ramsay
Prawns deserve to eat something better than cat food, and he just pisses us off.

Arno Carstens
Because up in space – closer to the real stars - is the only place he can justify wearing sunglasses at night.

Deborah Patta
The aliens have already had the 3rd degree, so finally her attacking, invasive questions will be met with only a can of whoop-ass.

Leonard Chuene
Because he won't be able to pull the race card when surrounded by 1.8 million very similar-looking aliens.

Noeleen Maholwana-Sanqu
The aliens have over 20 years of oppression and ill-treatment to work through.

Derek Van Dam
As an avid meteorologist, he'll be happier in space and with that view, he'll finally be able to give accurate weather forecasts.

Top Billing Cast
I'm sure the mothership is going to need some DIY handiwork and redecorating after 20 years of just hovering.
