Jon Stewart and Steve Carell are back together for Focus Features’ “Irresistible,” and the mini-“Daily Show” reunion might just be as the title suggests.
Stewart wrote, directed and produced the upcoming movie, which stars Carell as a Democratic political consultant who helps a retired ex-Marine colonel (Chris Cooper) run for mayor in a small Wisconsin town. In the process, Carell will have to contend with cows in addition to the other bull that comes with local politics.
The comedy also stars Rose Byrne as Carell’s Republican counterpart and face-licking rival, as well as Topher Grace, Natasha Lyonne, Mackenzie Davis, C.J. Wilson and Will Sasso. Those other five don’t do any face-licking, as far as we can tell.
Watch the movie’s trailer in the video above. Budweiser is a twist-off, city slicker.
Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment produced the picture, alongside Stewart.
“Irresistible,” Stewart’s follow up to his 2014 film “Rosebud,” rides into theaters on Friday, May 29.
Stewart appeared with another friend and former “Daily Show” colleague on Thursday to plug “Irresistible.”
Watch him hang with Stephen Colbert on CBS’ “The Late Show” last night via the video below.
Remember Colbert and Carell doing “Even Stevphen”? Ah, those were the days.
