Stephen Colbert to interview Jon Stewart for ‘Rosewater’ directorial debut

SHARE Stephen Colbert to interview Jon Stewart for ‘Rosewater’ directorial debut

Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart have been pals and colleagues for a long time. Colbert, as you might know, was hired by Stewart as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” in 1997 and spent eight years there before launching his own wildly successful Comedy Central program. That’s soon coming to an end after 9 seasons so Colbert can occupy David Letterman’s longtime desk at CBS.

Along the way, Colbert has been a guest on Stewart’s show and vice versa. Now the role of interrogator falls once again to Colbert.  To help herald Stewart’s directorial debut “Rosewater,” which hits theaters Nov. 14, Colbert will conduct a Q&A in New York (not on “The Colbert Report”) with his friend and former boss. Their chat will then be screened in select theaters nationwide on Nov. 13, a day before “Rosewater” goes wide.
