“Rather than killing everybody else, what if we were to coexist with them in some kind of fashion?” Stewart asked Colbert during a discussion of the themes of the Daily Show host’s directorial debut, Rosewater.
“Coexist, like that bumper sticker people have?” Colbert said with distaste. “Are there better ways of doing things than we do things, or are you a blame-America-first?”
Earlier, Colbert admitted he was upset he found Stewart’s film so good.
“It’s a beautiful film and that offends me. Why is it that you can do your show … and you do it well, and now you’re doing something else well,” he asked. “You have to stay in your gestation crate. You’re not allowed to move out of your crate.”
The interview ended with the men hugging.
Stewart has been on the talk-show circuit for Rosewater. Last week he hit The Late Show and earlier this week was on The Tonight Show. The show has been often mentioned on The Daily Show in passing. Last week on The Daily Show, Stewart handed over hosting duties to John Oliver to interview the film’s star, Gael Garcia Bernal, and real-life inspiration Maziar Bahari.
