VIDEO: Joshua Jackson Talks How He Owes His Career To Jon Stewart

'Children of a Lesser God' star Joshua Jackson appeared last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where he talked about how he might have stayed in school had he not been pulling all-nighters as a teenager to watch Jon Stewart. Watch the clip below!

Directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon, Children of a Lesser God stars film and television favorite Joshua Jackson and breakout star Lauren Ridloff, alongside Emmy Award winner and Golden Globe Award winner Anthony Edwards, Drama Desk Award nominee and Obie Award winner Kecia Lewis, Julee Cerda, Treshelle Edmond, and John McGinty. The play will open on Wednesday, April 11 at Studio 54.

One of the most indelible love stories of the modern age, Children of a Lesser God brings to life the passionate and personal connection between a teacher at a school for the deaf (Mr. Jackson) and the remarkable woman (Ms. Ridloff) he meets there. Now, Tony Award-winning director Kenny Leon's "outstanding production" (NPR) invigorates this landmark play with astounding new relevance and a pair of performances that cannot be missed. Jesse Green of The New York Times raves, "Joshua Jackson is a revelation in a tour de force role, and Lauren Ridloff is sensational and explosive."
