We learned a lot of things when the Anchorman gang visited Jon Stewart. We learned that Paul Rudd’s non-aging magic – fueled by stored Nazi blood – enables one to become him if you kill him. We learned that Steve Carell craves Chilean hors d’oeuvres picked by abused migrant workers. And we learned that the Daily Show green room isn’t exactly the Taj Mahal.
When Carell returned to the Daily Show last night, flanked by his three tag-along co-stars, they presented Stewart with special gifts – drab gifts from the green-room walls and end-tables. Stewart clearly was expecting something grander in the holiday spirit – or at least something that he didn’t have to return to its rightful place, like the cup of straws.
Carell and Stewart bonded briefly over champagne and food, but things soon fell apart. One moment they were discussing David Koechner’s affinity for airline porn, the next, there were threats of cutting off Paul Rudd’s face.
