[UPDATED] The rumor over the weekend was that Sir Patrick Stewart may be rejoining his Nemesis pal Tom Hardy for Mad Max 4, but it turns out that it isn’t true. Oh well, Stewart will be appearing in tonight’s Frontline Special "Digital Nation", and you can watch a clip of him below talking technology where he balks at Twitter, but expresses love for his iPhone.
UPDATE: No Mad Max for Sir Patrick
A rumor got started over the weekend when AICN posted an email from a reader who reported that on a comment from Patrick Stewart at OZTrek2, which led to speculation he would be appearing in the Mad Max 4: Fury Road, which stars Star Trek Nemesis’ Tom Hardy as the new Max. However, a publicist for Mr. Stewart has denied the rumor.
Stewart did talk about his desire to be in more Star Trek while in Australia, and that you can take to the bank. See our previous report for more.
Sir Patrick is digital – but no Twitter
Patrick Stewart loves the Internet, but apparently he will not be following William Shatner, and his TNG co-stars LeVar Burton, Brent Spiner and Wil Wheaton onto the Twitter.
