Variety is reporting that British actor Daniel Craig has signed on to act in the upcoming Holocaust drama Defiance, which will be written and directed by Edward Zwick (Blood Diamond).
Based on the true story from Nechama Tec's memoir of the same name, Defiance tells the story of four Jewish brothers who join up with Russian resistance fighters in WWII Poland.
Craig, who is best known for taking over the role of James Bond (Casino Royale), appears to have a burgeoning penchant for playing Jewish badasses (witness: Munich).
I think I can say I speak for all of my people when I say, "Shalom, and glad to have you, sir."
Defiance is scheduled for release on November 11, 2008.
