Louis C.K. stopped by "The Daily Show" to discuss his role in Woody Allen's upcoming film, "Blue Jasmine." He said of the experience, "The way I look at it, they were making a movie and I got to be in it. I'm this guy who bothers this poor woman, played by Sally Hawkins. I have sex with her about 5 times in the movie....I'm real seedy, just gross."

Summing up his role, he says, "I'm one of those things that happened to some poor lady."
