Nothing But the Truth, a fictional rendering of the Valerie Plame/ leak case featuring Kate Beckinsale as a younger, hotter Judy Miller, doesn’t open until December 17, but there are a few clips floating around in case you CIA just can’t wait. Herewith, watch Beckinsale and Matt Dillon (in the Patrick Fitzgerald role) discuss the meaning of “off the record.” It’s quite excruciating, actually. Now we know how nuclear physicists must feel when they hear, like, Colin Farrell expounding on secular equilibrium.
