Re: Rachel Weisz/Daniel Craig news.
While the new Mrs. Craig was engaged for Darren Aranofsky for several years, and the two are parents to a son, she never became Mrs. Aranfosky because they never actually tied the knot. Agree with the other point that Daniel Craig plays fictional Jews very well, just as he seems to be able to play fictional everybodies very well.
