“He’s the reason I got thrown out of my second high school,” the 39-year-old actor told Stephen. “If I had actually done something constructive with my time instead of watching his TV show, I probably wouldn’t have had to make it as an actor ’cause there was no other option for me.”
Joshua explained that the original Jon Stewart Show was rebroadcast from a Seattle station so he could watch it in his hometown of Vancouver. “So he’s getting rebroadcast, but I don’t know why they put it on at 1:30, so I would stay up every night to watch the 1:30 show, which kept me up to 2:30, which meant that clearly I wasn’t gonna make my first class, so I just didn’t,” Josh recalled.
“When I did that enough, they were like, ‘Well since you don’t want to come in the morning, you might as well not come in the afternoon, either,” Josh continued – Watch the full interview below!
