Chris Rock promises Jon Stewart that 'Top Five' is 'Korean-friendly'

Posted on

Comedy Central

According to Chris Rock, The Interview may not be in theaters, but audiences can still watch it if they’re willing to trek up to 125th St. in New York City.

Rock appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to discuss his new film Top Five, but the topic inevitably landed on another comedy that was supposed to release this holiday season.

Stewart asked Rock if he thought there might be some extra money to be made now that The Interview won’t be released in theaters. Rock discusses how Top Five isn’t just “very Korean-friendly,” it’s the safest Christmas movie around.

Hopefully Rock can keep that goodwill going into the new year, as he mentions he’s already at work on his next project, though he’d like to write some more stand-up material first.

Of course, it’s not all good news during the interview. Stewart expresses his disappointment over writing Rosewater, a movie “shitting all over the Iranian regime,” and finding that the Iranian reaction consisted of “Nothing. They don’t even care.”

So much for all that free publicity.
