Comedy Central says Jon Stewart will take a break from “The Daily Show” starting in June to direct and produce his first feature film.

The network said Tuesday that correspondent-writer John Oliver will host the fake news show for the eight weeks of original episodes scheduled during Stewart’s hiatus.

The film, titled “Rosewater,” was written by Stewart and is based on a book by Iranian journalist Maziar Bahari.

Seeking ‘normalcy’

Halle Berry says all she wants is a normal life for her daughter.

The Oscar-winning actress had hoped to move to France with 4-year-old Nahla and Berry’s fiancé, Oliver Martinez. But a judge in her custody dispute with Nahla’s father, Gabriel Aubry, prevented that last year.

Berry says she’s now trying to figure out how to make life “more normal” for Nahla in the Los Angeles area, where they live.

Says Berry: “That’s all I really want, just normalcy for her.”

Berry stars in the upcoming thriller “The Call.”

‘Protect each other’

Lena Dunham is urging her fellow “Obies” to stick together as her alma mater in Oberlin, Ohio, wrestles with reports of racism.

The creator and star of HBO’s “Girls” wrote on her Twitter account Monday after learning about racist graffiti at famously liberal Oberlin College.

The school about 30 miles from Cleveland was among the first to admit blacks.

Dunham tweeted: “Hey Obies, remember the beautiful, inclusive and downright revolutionary history of the place you call home. Protect each other.”
