You’ve seen it before and you’ve felt the excitement, comedy fans: the reunion between super successful, former Daily Show correspondents (Ed Helms, Stephen Colbert, Rob Corddry and more) and Jon Stewart– or “Papa Bear,” as Steve Carell calls him. That’s right! The man, Carell dropped by the Daily Show last night to push his new flick Crazy Stupid Love, which hits theaters July 29.
And this chat had everything you’d expect: sincere love (“I miss you so much,” Carell tells Stewart); a reference to the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders and talk of physically piling up all of the show’s former correspondents on top of each other to complete some twisted (and fun!) appreciation ritual. Carell also takes some time to compliment his Crazy Stupid Love co-star Ryan Gosling. “He could not be a nicer guy. He’s extremely handsome,” Carell says. “But he is as good looking on the inside as he is on the outside.”
That’s a good thing to know. Now, when I have my If I were gay, who would I fuck? moments, I could assume that Gosling would be cool with cuddling. But enough about me. Let’s watch some Carell-on-Stewart action!
