Watch: Ben Affleck Calls Jon Stewart a "Copycat" on 'The Daily Show'

Ben Affleck came on “The Daily Show” Tuesday night to promote his hot starrer “Gone Girl,” which opens this Friday. But it wasn’t long before the soon-to-be “Batman” star brought up some beef with Jon Stewart.

Watch as Affleck (jokingly? enviously?) points a finger at Stewart for also directing a movie about Iran, as Affleck compares Stewart’s “Rosewater,” about detained journalist Maziar Bahari, to his 2013 Best Picture winner “Argo.” That film was about the CIA’s late-70s attempt to rescue six US diplomats from Tehran. “Rosewater” could be an award contender this year.

“Daily Show” clip below; and watch our video interview with Stewart and leading man Gael Garcia Bernal from Telluride here. (Also worth reading is Vulture’s funny instruction guide on how to see Affleck’s penis in “Gone Girl.” If you must.)
