The Cricket’s Daily 3: ‘Noah’ against the storm

Here’s what’s being talked about over the weekend in pop culture:

• Here’s one for lovers of irony: The massive storm Sandy caused a shutdown on the set of Darren Aronofsky’s next movie, "Noah," being filmed in Oyster Bay, N.Y. It was just one of many productions, concerts and other events cancelled due to the storm. Meanwhile, David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon soldiered on, without an audience.
