Rosewater

2014 – Jon Stewart was in studio to plug his new movie, Rosewater.  His last appearance was at Howard’s Philadelphia gay dance party, where he danced with Fred.  He filmed Rosewater in Jordan, which he says is safe.  It’s where they filmed Zero Dark Thirty.  His movie is about a British reporter that was locked up in an Iranian prison for about half a year for nothing more than trying to tell the story of what was going on there.  He said that now that networks are cutting back on budgets, many reporters are on their own and freelancing, but they then have no protection.  Jon wanted this story told, so he went ahead and directed it, although he’s never been a director before.  He asked other directors for advice, but wouldn’t ask any others to direct because it was going to be such a small movie.   He took time off from the Daily Show to do this movie, and knew that John Oliver would take over and he could never go back to being a reporter, so he wasn’t surprised that John’s gone on with his own show, Last Week Tonight.  Howard and Robin said they haven’t seen it yet, but are anxious to see it.
