Patrick Stewart has signed on to play a white supremacist in GREEN ROOM. The thriller stars Anton Yelchin, Alia Shawkat, and Imogen Poots as a punk rock band who accidentally witnesses an act of violence. They end up trapped in a secluded location, hunted by a gang of skinheads. Stewart has been cast as the leader of the white supremacist faction in the Pacific Northwest.
Although Stewart is a classically trained British actor, most Americans know him from one or both of his most famous roles – playing Captain Jean-Luc Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation or as the elder version of Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men franchise. Lately, he’s been lending his voice talents to animated projects like Gnomeo & Juliet, Ice Age: Continental Drift, and the animated series American Dad! Next up, Stewart will star alongside Jon Heder and James Roday in the Christmas comedy Stuck.
