American Dad fans found themselves somewhat concerned by the FOX Family Guy offshoot’s move to TBS last year, but the Smiths can officially take it easy. Not only does American Dad already have 22 new episodes to look forward to in 2016, but TBS has thrown an additional 44 at the wall, keeping the family in business through 2018.
Although fellow Trekker Leonard Nimoy appeared in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek movie in 2009, and there have long been rumors of William Shatner reprising his iconic role as Captain Kirk, there’s one veteran Star Trek actor we probably won’t ever see again on the big screen: Patrick Stewart. It’s not that he doesn’t want to reprise the role; he just doesn’t think he’ll be asked.
Although he was on the set of X-Men: Apocalypse, we won’t be seeing Patrick Stewart’s elder Professor X in Bryan Singer’s upcoming sequel. But there is good news for fans of Sir Pat Stew, as the actor has revealed that Charles Xavier will reunite with his old pal Logan for The Wolverine 2.
It’s one thing to put Patrick Stewart in a Starz series dubbed Blunt Talk, promoting the dignified X-Men and Star Trek star in all manner of unseemly behavior, but it’s quite another to actually see it in action. Stewart picks up hookers, snorts coke, cuckolds, quotes Oliver Twist, draws dong, and … well, does pretty much everything by the latest trailer.
We previously learned that neither Patrick Stewart nor Ian McKellen will be appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse, as the new sequel focuses more on the younger cast. But Bryan Singer’s latest photo from the set may be giving fans a glimmer of hope, with Stewart paying the production a little visit.
These days, we’re more used to Sir Patrick Stewart classing up movie screens, or as a voice in Seth MacFarlane’s corner, but the erstwhile Captain Picard is returning to TV full-time as a coke-sniffing cable news pundit transplanted to America. Watch Patrick Steward give some Blunt Talk in the first trailer for Starz’s new MacFarlane-produced comedy!
Yesterday, Sir Patrick Stewart revealed that he would not, as was widely suspected, be returning for ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’. He did, however, tease his involvement in the next ‘Wolverine’ movie saying, “we have been talking about a Wolverine movie, which would team Hugh Jackman and myself together.” He offered no further details, so we took this rumor straight to the man himself, Wolverine, and asked Hugh Jackman for some details.
Here’s a juicy tidbit from Professor Charles Xavier himself, Patrick Stewart, who’s currently promoting a new indie movie called ‘Match.’ Asked about his possible status for future ‘X-Men’ movies by The Oregonian, Stewart confirmed that it’s “very unlikely” he’ll be a part of the upcoming ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ movie that will see young versions of the classic X-Men lineup (including Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, and Alexandra Shipp as Storm) face off against Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse. But Stewart did reveal that Ian McKellen’s Magneto will make an ‘Apocalypse’-tic appearance, and that his Professor X could be turning up in the next solo Wolverine movie alongside Hugh Jackman. Here’s the quote:
Here’s what we know about ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’: Bryan Singer’s follow-up to ‘Days of Future Past’ will focus more on the ‘First Class’ cast facing off with Oscar Isaac’s titular comic book villain Apocalypse (perhaps the most formidable villain in X-Men history), and Singer is looking to cast younger versions of Cyclops, Storm, and Jean Grey. Given that the film focuses more on the younger versions of the characters, it’s not entirely shocking to learn that two of the most beloved, older cast members won’t be returning.
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' claimed the box office after one weekend in theaters with a cast that includes more mutants than you can throw a Sentinel at, and it's one of the best 'X-Men' films to date. Because we know you're wondering when you can bring this puppy home, we've got the first look at the upcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Deluxe Blu-ray Edition!
