Jessica Chastain, currently starring in Broadway's 'The Heiress', stopped by Comedy Central's The Daily Show WITH Jon Stewart last night to discuss her latest film "Zero Dark Thirty". "I'm interested in films that create a conversation," she explained to host Stewart. "The film ends with an unanswered question and I think it asks where do you want to go. And by asking the audience that question, you're forcing them to participate." Check out the appearance in full below!
