Jon Stewart is probably best known for hosting one of the best talk shows ever, The Daily Show, on Comedy Central. He hosted the satirical news program for over 15 years before throwing in the towel in 2015.
Since then, he’s been focused on writing/directing films. His first feature, Rosewater, premiered in 2014 to generally favorable reviews.
Now he’s returning to the land of features with the upcoming political satire, Irresistible, starring Steve Carell, Chris Cooper, Rose Byrne and Topher Grace.
The film stars Carell as a successful Democratic strategist who, after discovering a video of a retired marine colonel, played by Chris Cooper, pledging support for the rights of his local townsfolk’s undocumented workers, is convinced he’s found a way into the right-wing-skewing Heartland.
It’s set to be released May 29, 2020. Check out the trailer below…[mashshare]
