Jon Stewart’s Irresistible Trailer Starring Steve Carell


After making his directorial debut with the 2014 political drama Rosewater, Jon Stewart is back behind the camera this year with a movie that seems a little more directly in his wheelhouse. Irresistible is a political satire that stars Stewart’s former The Daily Show collaborator Steve Carell as a Democratic strategist who helps a retired veteran (Chris Cooper) run for mayor in a small town in Wisconsin. Not to be outdone, however, the Republicans send in a representative of their own (Rose Byrne) to try to take back control of America’s heartland. Mackenzie Davis, Topher Grace, Will Sasso, Debra Messing and Natasha Lyonne also co-star. Irresistible hits theatres on May 29th; check out the trailer below and see what you think.

    That was unexpected. Really thought he was taking his retirement seriously – except for still advocating on behalf of the 911 responders. Good to see him still fighting the fight.
