There may be two Captain Kirks but there still is only one Captain Picard. Today is Patrick Stewart’s 69th Birthday. Although he has handed in his space suit to return to his home in the theater, Star Trek fans still remember the leader of The Next Generation on TV and film. See below for the latest on Patrick.
Patrick Stewart Day
Patrick Stewart’s contribution to the arts, on the stage, TV and big screen, should surely justify a national holiday, just like Captain Picard Day is on the USS Enterprise.
Stewart headed to an alternative reality (& Castlevania)
In some other PS news, Patrick will be acting as narrator for the upcoming Ricky Gervais movie The Invention of Lying. The film is set in an alternate reality where people can only speak the truth, until one guy (Gervais) ‘invents’ lying. Here is the trailer (unfortunately, there is no PS in the trailer). The movie opens next September 25th.
Speaking of voice work, Stewart can be heard in this trailer for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Stewart’s voice appears in the game, which comes out at the end of 2010.
See Patrick in Godot in London
Stewart is also currently appearing in "Waiting for Godot" with Iam McKellen at the Haymarket Theater in London. The play has been extended to August 9th. More info at waitingforgodottheplay.com.
