Two-Point Conversion

So Jewdar is walking down the street the other day, when we are confronted by a bus-stop ad for a film featuring not one, not two, but three Jewish lead actresses (and no, it wasn’t Fiddler on the Roof II: The Revenge of Tevye).<!–break–> The movie is Definitely, Maybe, and what makes it particularly fascinatifying is that while one of the Themitic Thespians is the better looking half of Weisonofsky, two of the three—Elizabeth Banks and Isla Fisher (green-eyed Heeb readerettes may know her better as “Mrs. Sasha Baron Cohen") entered the Tribe fairly late in life. We don’t know if this is a sign of things to come, but who knows? Maybe conversion will be the next big Tinseltown career move. Suck on that, L. Ron Hubbard.
