Deadline.com reports that Jon Stewart will be taking a break from hosting “The Daily Show” to direct the film “Rosewater”, which he also wrote.

The hiatus from the show is expected to last through the summer to allow him time to work on the film. “Daily Show” contributor John Oliver has been tapped to fill-in as host.

When asked about his new job, Stewart told The New York Times, “I am a television person who is accustomed to having a thought at 10 a.m. and having it out there at 6:30 p.m. and moving on, so this is a little scary, yes.”

Before taking over as host of “The Daily Show”, Stewart appeared in such films as “Big Daddy”, “Teaching Mrs. Tingle” and “Half-Baked”. His last big-screen appearance was in “Death to Smoochy”, starring Robin Williams.

It’s gonna be a long summer without you, Jon.
