Daniel Craig is set to star opposite his Oscar-winning wife, Rachel Weisz, this fall in the Broadway revival of Harold Pinter’s Betrayal.

In the play, to be directed by 10-time Tony winner Mike Nichols, Weisz plays a woman having an affair with her husband’s best friend. Craig will play her husband with Life of Pi actor Rafe Spall co-starring as his best friend.

Betrayal marks the Oz: The Great and Powerful actress’s Broadway debut, though she has appeared off-Broadway and won a 2010 Olivier Award for her performance as Blanche DuBois in the West End revival of A Streetcar Named Desire. This will be Craig’s second appearance on the Great White Way. The Skyfall superstar previously starred alongside Broadway vet Hugh Jackman in the 2009 production of A Steady Rain.

Preview performances begin October 1 at the Barrymore Theatre with opening night set for Nov. 3. The show will have a limited, 14-week run, through Jan. 5, 2014, so expect tickets to be tough to come by.
