As refined thespians and Knights of the Realm, Patrick Stewart & Ian McKellen are no strangers to the Broadway stage. This fall Picard & Magneto (or Professor X & Gandalf, if you prefer) are set to co-star in two separate plays. First, they will be reprising their roles in the critically acclaimed Samuel Becket play Waiting for Godot, which originally played in 2009 to sold out audiences at London's West End. Next, they will be in a limited engagement run of Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land.

This has been bouncing around the net as of late, but I found it rather entertaining and thought I would share it with you, gentle reader. Heh, that was almost poetic... Almost. Moving on. Star Trek: Nemesis is one of those like it or hate it Trek movies. We see it as missed potential. One thing you can't really argue is the fantastic chemistry between Patrick Stewart and Tom Hardy. The Picards duke it out scene after scene in an almost Shakespearean duel.
It's a very special day... not Captain Picard day, but a special day none-the-less. It's actually the birthday of the man that gave Jean Luc Picard life.

We'd like to wish him a very happy birthday by sharing a few of the internet's finest videos. So, here's to Sir Captain Jean Patrick Luc Stewart Picard... may you live another 72 years.
