Adam Sternbergh has a little naming fun in this week's New York magazine, clarifying once and for all that Jonathan Rhys Myers is not Welsh and is not, in all likelihood, related to either John Rhys-Davis (aka Lord of the Rings' Gimli, and also Sallah in Raiders of the Lost Ark) or Jean Rhys, the author of the novel Wide Sargasso Sea, a retelling of Jane Eyre. And he's also not related to Jonathan Taylor Thomas, born Jonathan Taylor Weiss. Why JTT is randomly stuck in there, we can't really say. But come on, Sternbergh. If you're going to bring up Home Improvement's Randy Taylor, the least you could do is mention to his fans that he's currently roaming the halls of Columbia University. You can even email him yourself!
