Patrick Stewart Would Play Jean-Luc Picard Again if the Script Was Good

January 9th, 2016 by Todd Black Comments



With reboots and remakes and sequels coming across every facet of media, fans are often asking if a classic actor would reprise roles or be remade.

For Star Trek Fans, many wonder if The Next Generation captain Jean-Luc Picard could return to the big screen, played by Patrick Stewart again, or a new actor. Stewart said the following on both subjects:

“Absolutely… if it were a really good script. But, the poor soul is getting old and long in the tooth. He would probably need some help mounting his horse unlike the youthful captain of 30 years ago.”

“I would have to say it must be the actor, my son, Daniel Stewart.”
