Trevor Noah is officially set to replace Jon Stewart as the host of Comedy Central’s nightly program, The Daily Show.
The 31-year-old comedian first made his debut on the show back in December and has only made three appearances so far.
“You don’t believe it for the first few hours,” Trevor told the New York Times of landing the huge job. “You need a stiff drink, and then unfortunately you’re in a place where you can’t really get alcohol.”
“I’m thrilled for the show and for Trevor,” Jon said in a statement. “He’s a tremendous comic and talent that we’ve loved working with.”
Michele Ganeless, the president of Comedy Central, also commented on the casting: “We talked to women. We talked to men. We found in Trevor the best person for the job. You don’t hope to find the next Jon Stewart – there is no next Jon Stewart. So, our goal was to find someone who brings something really exciting and new and different.”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is beautiful in white on the cover of New Beauty‘s Spring/Summer 2015 issue, which is out on newsstands on Tuesday (March 31)!
Here’s what the 54-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On aging: “You’ve seen me age! I’ve been in showbiz for so long. From the first time people saw me on Saturday Night Live until now… it’s no secret that I’ve gotten older. I’ve gotten older in front of you and that is odd – it is still so strange to me that everyone has seen me age on a public stage. It’s totally changing and difficult.”
On her guilty pleasures: “I have a lot of guilty pleasures – wine and chocolate, in particular – but when I cut them out completely, I get into a lot of trouble. My mantra is moderation.”
On her biggest fear: “Surgery really scares me. I’m really afraid of it. But I’m more afraid of unwanted hairs that I can’t see in my magnification mirror!”

Check out some new campaign images of Olivia promoting the H&M Conscious Exclusive collection.
“Sustainability has got a bad reputation, especially in fashion. I think people assume the clothes will be dull, the fabrics uncomfortable and the design uninspiring. It’s like people think sustainability is a penance. This couldn’t be further from the truth, and the H&M Conscious Exclusive collection shows that sustainability is no compromise on style,” Olivia shared to WWD.
She added, “I hope the collection empowers women around the world who love fashion but want to consume it in a more sustainable way. It gives them the chance to look their best, and also act responsibly. I also hope the rest of the fashion industry is watching. I think this is how all fashion should be.”
