Ahem.

Whether you like the movie or not, he pretty much kicked ass in the role.

I just realized... if he was just a little younger, he would have been a perfect Master on Dr. Who.

For some reason him being King Richard in Men in Tights just made the movie better for me. A guilty pleasure movie, I know it's bad but it amuses me anyway.

Thought for sure they would list his "Macbeth" from PBS' Great Performances (2007) on there.

I liked it, anyway. Great interpretation and styling!

It would appear Patrick Stewart can join the very exclusive club with Nimmoy and Dolly Parton as one of the people that Fark doesn't have anything bad to say about.

acefox1: It was him alone on stage for about 90 minutes talking about his life in the theater and talking about how actors should constantly explore all of the different ways they could play a given role. He was so good that he even made that dry material seem riveting. I still remember it 20 years later.


He just kept talking in one long incredibly unbroken sentence moving from topic to topic so that no one had the chance to interrupt it was really quite hypnotic.

"..Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard quickly stole the hearts of fans everywhere..."

BS. The first season and a half of TNG was god-awful. After that I started to like it and thought I was growing into the show. Maybe I was too hard on it. Then I saw the first season again. Still awful.

Hairpiece worn for the role. Stewart went bald at age 19.

CSB time:

I got to see him play Othello where the races of the cast were reversed. This was at the Shakespeare Theater in Washington D.C. when I was in high school. One of the better plays I've seen.

The problem is that the miniseries wasn't as faithful as possible. Irulan had way too large a role and...well, let's just say I tuned out when I realized they had Harkonnen speaking in rhyming couplets.

For all the hatred of Brian's books, they do add background to some of the more seemingly meaningless characters. Irulan, for one. And "Hi. I'm Duncan Idaho. Oops, I'm dead again".


I read Dune, and I loved it. I've read it many, many times.

I read Children of Dune once and thought something along the lines of "dear lord, that was terrible."

I've never read another book in the series, nor do I plan to. :)

His voice-over work on "American Dad" as Bullock never fails.

The episode where Bullock thinks Stan is harboring an alien and Stweart says "You don't understand, Smith. When we find him we're going to DO stuff to him. Weird stuff. BUTT stuff." in that stentorian voice of God absolutely kills.

Conspiracy Theory was a good role that doesn't get much attention. It was really cool seeing a guy who was mostly known to American audiences as Picard play a sinister, black bag villain.

Yes, but...Good lord that movie. So, so terrible.

I would pay real, American money to have someone make a film adaptation of Dune that doesn't suck. Peter Jackson should do it, as a series of three films. It would be epic.

timujin: His performance in "Sarek" is to this day one of the most impressive moments in television I've ever seen.


What is even more impressive is that he had to do that scene for 3-4 takes or so. So he had to do the whole thing and cry ON CUE, multiple times. That is acting.

Plus the man has a wickedly good sense of humor, helped make Wil Wheaton the amazing dude he is today, and brought a British polish to voice over work that remains unparalleled to this day (John Cleese's Sir Roderick Ponce Von Fontlebottom the Magnificent Bastard aside).

Avery Brooks is a space cadet. He needs to be locked away for the good of humanity.
