Jon Stewart taking a summer hiatus from The Daily Show so he can direct a movie, probably Avengers 2
This summer, comedian Jon Stewart will be taking a break from The Daily Show so he can direct his first movie. While he’s gone, John Oliver will be filling in at the anchor desk. Stewart’s directorial debut will be a movie called ‘Rosewater’, the real life story of journalist Maziar Bahari, a journalist who spent 118 days in an Iranian prison in 2009. Stewart met Bahari as a guest on The Daily Show, and the whole gig just kinda happened.
Seems the two are gonna debate politics, and in a more formal setting than the set of the Daily Show. This should be highly entertaining.
