Steve Carell Tries to Save Democrats in Jon Stewart's 'Irresistible' Trailer

“Daily Show” buds reunite for Focus Features movie

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 Democrat 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 face-licking rival, as well as Topher Grace, Natasha Lyonne, Mackenzie Davis, CJ Wilson and Will Sasso. Those five don’t do any face licking, as far as we can tell.

Watch the trailer via 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.
