Jon Stewart, 52, announced today that he’ll be leaving The Daily Show at the end of the year. Why? Because he feels burned out or something? So what does he with the rest of his life? Sit around on the veranda? Does he think he’ll wind up doing something more valuable than The Daily Show? That’s doubtful. Does he want to direct more films? One presumes as much, but Rosewater indicated that he may not quite be Stanley Kubrick. But he could grow in that regard. He’ll find, however, that until he makes a film that’s a lot better than Rosewater people will treat him as a famous ex-talk-show host first and an aspiring filmmaker/novelist/whatever second.
