17 Photos Of Jon Stewart Hanging Out With Locals In Jordan While Shooting 'Rosewater'

It's not often that Jordanians have an American celebrity in their own backyard. So when Jon Stewart announced that he was to spend the summer in Amman to shoot his debut movie "Rosewater," the town welcomed the "Daily Show" host with open arms. In fact, "I just met Jon Stewart" was joked to be so popular a phrase, it was joked about in this Onion-esque satire publication..

Check out these Instagram photos of Stewart hanging out in Jordan on the set of his film. (By the way, he'll return to "The Daily Show" next Tuesday.)

BONUS: A couple videos of Director Jon Stewart in action.
