Grammys go for Stewart

Bigscreen credits include 'Big Daddy,' 'The Faculty'

Comedian and talkshow host Jon Stewart has been named host of the Grammy Awards ceremony on Wednesday, replacing Whoopi Goldberg, who had to pull out due to health problems.

Stewart, author of “Naked Pictures of Famous People,” hosts “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central and previously hosted an interview show for MTV, which Paramount used to replace “Arsenio Hall” in syndication in the early 1990s.

“Not since 1986, when we named a relatively unknown comic named Billy Crystal to shepherd the Grammys, have I been this energized by our choice for host,” NARAS president-CEO Michael Greene said.

Stewart’s film credits include “Big Daddy” and “The Faculty.” He also will be seen in “Death to Smoochie” with Robin Williams and Danny DeVito.
