Jon Stewart Tells Rachel Weisz To Catch A Tigers Game; Apparently She's Not A Fan

When Jon Stewart isn't busy destroying Fox News on the "The Daily Show," he's usually interviewing a celebrity guest. Last night, Stewart's guest was English actress Rachel Weisz, best known for her work in The Mummy series.

The interview eventually got around to a Wizard of Oz prequel that Weisz is working on, which is being filmed in Detroit. It looked like Stewart was primed for one of those tired Detroit jabs, but actually ended up complimenting the city's efforts to lure the film industry to Michigan. Stewart then surprisingly recommended that Weisz check out a Tigers game, which it appears she has never considered. You can watch the full interview after the jump.

The section you're looking for is at the 3:50 mark:

Some of the highlights from Stewart:
"I knew the yellow brick road led somewhere near Detroit."
"I would like to see Detroit get other industries like the film business."

And the snippet about the Tigers:
Stewart: Have you had a chance to catch a game yet, a Tigers game?
Weisz: I have no idea what you're talking about (pauses as audience laughs). You think I'm joking.
Stewart: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, the Tigers are a team of cricketers.
