Jon Stewart is back, and he has something to say.
Focus Features released the first trailer for Jon Stewart’s Irresistible – a comedy of a Democrat political consultant (played by Steve Carell) who helps a retired ex-Marine colonel run for mayor in a small Wisconsin town. Irresistible stars Academy Award nominee Steve Carell, Rose Byrne, Academy Award winner Chris Cooper, Topher Grace, Natasha Lyonne, Mackenzie Davis, CJ Wilson and Will Sasso. Irresistible will open in select theaters starting May 29th, 2020.
Written and directed by Jon Stewart, Irresistible is a comedy about what happens when a small Wisconsin town becomes the main attraction of our political circus. After the Democrat’s top strategist Gary (Steve Carell) sees a video of a retired Marine Colonel (Chris Cooper) standing up for the rights of his town’s undocumented workers, Gary believes he has found the key to winning back the Heartland. However, when the Republicans counter him by sending in his brilliant nemesis Faith (Rose Byrne), what started out as a local race quickly becomes an out-of-control and hilarious fight for the soul of America.
