First Day without Jon Stewart

Breathe in that air. Do you smell it? Do you taste it? Feel it?

Jon Stewart isn’t hosting the Daily Show anymore. No longer will your late night pizza or study breaks be hosted by that wise man playing the fool. No more NYC pizza raves and rants, no more Italian mob impressions, no more stereotypical Jewish grandma impressions, no more “HELLOOOOO” shrilly screeched in his best Queen Elizabeth, and no more self-deprecating one liners.

Hit the Jump for one of my favorite (there are SO many how can I choose?!) Jon Stewart Daily Show moments:

The Rock up for Green Lantern?

The lovely people over at IGN made an interesting connection earlier today.  You may have heard that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (Fast and Furious, G.I. Joe Retaliation) has been tweeting about being involved in a new DC project, and there has been plenty of speculation as to what that role might be.  However, the folks at IGN have postulated that he may, in fact, be playing one of the multiple human Green Lanterns, John Stewart, based off of an Instagram photo that Johnson posted himself back in November.  See the image below:

With this upload Rocky also sent out the following:  “Known this beast since he was 15. I was on the football field playing for Miami, he was leading the Hurricanes marching band as Drum Major. He spent years of working on my WWE story lines & Rock monologues. Then years of being on every movie set with me learning the film business from top to bottom. Today, he’s one of the best and most sought after producers in Hollywood. Brilliant, relentless and one big motherf*cker! Proud of you brother & thank you for all the hard work. #ProducerHiram #TeamRock #JohnStewartCanStillWhupSupermansAss”

The hashtag to take notice of here is very clearly: “#JohnStewartCanStillWhupSupermansAss” which may elude to the part he’s been referring to.  Or it may be something completely unrelated.  What are your thoughts on The Rock slipping on a Power Ring?  Is this another misstep in the long line of recent DC casting?  Is The Rock everything you could have hoped for in a John Stewart since Justice League Unlimited?  His comicbook-esque proportions certainly help to physically sell the role.  Only time will tell, or it won’t (you know, since it’s only speculation).
