Stewart said he believes Hillary Clinton will run, as will New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Jon quipped, “If he wasn't running, you think he'd be hanging out in Iowa? I mean, he's Chris Christie."

What about Donald Trump? Stewart said, "No, he's trying to promote the new 'Celebrity Apprentice.' I would love [if he ran], because that would be like that feeling of the Gold Rush."

As for “Rosewater,” the film is based on Iranian-Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari’s detainment in Iran after being falsely accused of being a spy following the 2009 Iranian election.

When asked what it was like working with Stewart, Bahari joked, "We had a lot of breakfast. A lot of calories." Jon jumped in, "A lot of profanity… lot of steel cut oatmeal.”

"Rosewater" opens in theaters November 14th.
