Jennifer Connelly - Jennifer Connelly Joins Ewan Mcgregor In American Pastoral

Actress Jennifer Connelly has joined Ewan Mcgregor in an upcoming film adaptation of Philip Roth's acclaimed novel American Pastoral.

Filmmaker Phillip Noyce will bring the Pulitzer Prize-winning book to life on the big screen and now he has cast the Noah beauty as MCGregor's movie wife.

Producer Tom Rosenberg says, "Jennifer Connelly is one of the great actresses of our time. We always wanted her to play Dawn in American Pastoral and we're thrilled to be working with her."

The 1997 book follows lead character Seymour 'Swede' Levov, a successful businessman whose life falls into disarray when his daughter becomes wanted for committing a fatal act of political terrorism during the Vietnam War.
