The Guardian claims some American commentators thought Kenneth Branagh, playing Isambard Kingdom Brunel in the Industrial Revolution bit, was actually Abraham Lincoln. The famous Brit.

Word is, too, that a very brief clip showing Heather Graham and Bridget Moynahan, shock, kissing, may have made it past the censors at Saudi Arabian TV.

The Americans are here — to notably loud applause in the stadium. The end of the athletes march is imminent — it’s the US, not America, see.

And finally, the Brits — the last to march since, for the third time, they’re hosting.
