In a rare back-to-back booking, The Daily Show had both lead actors from Denis Villeneuve’s crime drama Prisoners — which debuted recently at TIFF and opens this week in the US — on the show to promote the film this week. Jake Gyllenhaal stopped by last night and discussed casting (including Ben Affleck as Batman), beards and aging with Jon Stewart, while tonight’s guest was Hugh Jackman, who opined on violence and gun control following the D.C. Navy Yard shooting. Both men were charming as ever, and Jon evidently enjoyed the film a great deal.
