Star Trek: Picard brings back not just Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard, but several other familiar Trek characters as well. One character who isn’t back, though: Guinan, the bartender played by Whoopi Goldberg. But that’ll change for Picard season 2. Stewart was recently a guest on Goldberg’s show The View, and he used the opportunity to officially invite Goldberg to join Picard season 2. You’ll never believe what she said next! (She said yes.)

Sooner or later, the X-Men will find their way into the MCU. It might not happen for a while, but it’s inevitable now that Disney owns Fox (sorry, make that 20th Century Studios). But how will Marvel approach this? Will they be bringing back familiar actors from X-Men films past, or recasting from the ground up? We have some idea of behind-the-scenes goings-on thanks to Patrick Stewart, who played Professor Charles Xavier in several X-films. According to Stewart, he had a meeting with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, and the subject of Professor X came up. But don’t get too excited – Stewart says he’s not going to reprise the role.

Sir Patrick Stewart wants one thing to be absolutely clear: his new CBS All Access series, Star Trek: Picard, is not merely Star Trek: The Next Generation 2.0.

It’s different. And it’s not all good.” Watch the full video below. Read More »

It all came as a surprise when Patrick Stewart announced last year that he would be reprising his role as the beloved Captain Jean-Luc Picard, a role he began playing three decades ago in Star Trek: The Next Generation. The last time Star Trek fans saw the noble captain was in the 2002 feature film Star Trek: Nemesis, and that seemed like it would be the last time. J.J. Abrams rebooted the Star Trek franchise with his 2009 feature film and launched a whole different timeline.
But this is the era of reboots and revivals after all, so why not bring back everyone’s favorite Starfleet captain? But it would take more than nostalgia (or a big paycheck) to tempt back an accomplished thespian like Stewart. So how did Star Trek: Picard series creator Alex Kurtzman do it? Well, it was a little superhero movie that Stewart was starring in at the time that convinced him, actually: Logan.
