When it comes to Star Trek, I’m a TNG kinda guy. Picard’s my favorite captain of the Enterprise, mainly because I just enjoy Patrick Stewart more than Bill Shatner. I liked him in Dune. I even liked him in X-Men, which I really didn’t expect.
Though he’s certainly produced lots of ‘serious’ work, his humor is what appeals to me most. From his Wikipedia entry:
The accolades he has received include “Sexiest Man on Television” (TV Guide, 1992), which he considered an unusual distinction considering his age and his baldness. (That same year, Cindy Crawford was voted the sexiest woman in the same poll.) In an interview with Michael Parkinson, he expressed gratitude for Gene Roddenberry’s riposte to a reporter who said, “Surely they would have cured baldness by the 24th century,” to which Roddenberry replied, “In the 24th Century, they wouldn’t care.”
Below is a video that portrays him in a way I’ve never seen. It’s funny and… disturbing, at the same time. Thanks to GeeksAreSexy for pointing me to it. I hope you enjoy…
Just another example of why I think Patrick Stewart is one of the finest actors ever to work. He’s so believable.
