Steve Carell and Jon Stewart at the Patron’s Brunch (Telluride Film Festival 2014)
Weekend Wisdom from Jon Stewart:
"[While shooting Rosewater]…the thing that I tried to establish early on was, trust your discomfort. If I’m saying something, and in your head you’re going, ‘Oh really?’ Trust that discomfort and make sure you articulate that to me. Because one thing I am good at is making a new plan. That’s the nice thing about basic cable that is different than film: Everything we do is pretty disposable. If one avenue is blocked, it doesn’t feel like a defeat to go, ‘Well, let’s try it this way.’”
A leedle moment
(This made me cry btw. Doesn’t bode well.)
I saw the last photo of Jon smoking a while back and wanted to find out where it was from. Apparently, that photo is from Episode 29 of MTV’s House of Style series, hosted by Cindy Crawford, where Jon served as a correspondent in 1994. (If the MTV link is locked, it looks like this segment is also on Youtube).

Killing your ass since 9ever.
Some things never change.
Good morning, young Daily Show.
Jon Stewart has decided to take a dive into the writing/directing pool.
His directorial debut will be titled Rosewater, as it follows a journalist who was captured and imprisoned in Iran.
I’ll wait for a preview to decide if it is worth the money.
