Sting's musical The Last Ship hit Broadway this fall, so it's no surprise the rocker-turned-composer sat down for an interview with one of the hottest theater critics around - a kindergartner from Arlington, Virginia named Iain Armitage. Armitage began reviewing plays at the age of six, after his mother took him to see Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellan perform in Waiting for Godot. Some 6-year-olds might consider sitting through a two-hour play a punishment, but Iain was mesmerized. He loved the show so much his mother encouraged him to post his thoughts to YouTube - and his videos have been going viral ever since. »

Star of stage and screen. Activist. Friend to ragged-haired popstars who cuddle up to him on chat show sofas like stray cats who have come in for the warmth. Ian McKellen has been many things over the course of his long, storied career, and in that time he has earned himself plenty of platitudes (Commander of the Order Of The British Empire, knighted for services to the performing arts, and Companion Of Honour for services to drama and to equality to name but three) as evidence to that.
But really, do you need any more evidence besides the fact that he hasn’t been out of work since he made his West End debut in 1965. That’s a straight half century of acting, during which time he’s only gone from strength to strength, soon making the leap from reciting Shakespeare on the stage to similarly high »

There have been some absolutely fantastic castings in comic book movies over the years; Christopher Reeve as Superman, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Patrick Stewart as Professor X, Ian McKellen as Magneto, Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man, Tom Hiddleston as Loki and Chris Evans as Captain America to name but a few.
As a result the comic book movie genre is now one of the most popular in Hollywood and the movies are attracting the biggest and best actors in the world very regularly.
The upcoming movies in the genre are no different. With several castings already known – and some having already filmed their scenes – there’s a lot of excitement and hype around certain characters thanks to the actors who are playing them.

Has Paramount lost ground a little already with its Star Trek plans? And what are its movie, TV and videogame options?
This article contains spoilers for Star Trek Into Darkness.
Way back in 2009, Jj Abrams managed to reboot Star Trek successfully, attracting a bunch of fans who had never warmed to or tried Trek before, whilst managing to hold on to lots of the old ones. Abrams' film spun a yarn that kept the universe of Gene Roddenberry’s original series intact, even allowing for cameos from Leonard Nimoy’s Spock Prime (rumours abound that Shatner’s Kirk was meant to appear too).
Lots went right. The casting was strong, the film was good, and both critics and paying cinemagoers alike responded favourably (the film has an 83% aggregated rating on Metacritic and took $385 million at the global box office, certainly not to be sniffed at compared to previous Trek films). Why then, »
To bring you your fix of the actor with the voice of gold, writer/director Stephen Belber has your back in his latest film, Match. The story revolves around a Juilliard professor played by Patrick Stewart who is then interviewed by a woman (Carla Gugino) and her husband (Matthew Lillard) for her dissertation on the history of dance in 1960's New York. However, it becomes increasingly clear that there are ulterior motives to the couple's visit. The film is based on the »

Patrick Stewart has been a starship Captain, a leader of a team of mutant superheroes, a skinhead neo-nazi leader, and now a ballet instructor. This guy is so diverse in the roles that he chooses, and it’s always fun to see him act. He looks great in this fantastic looking film. Stewart is always awesome even when he's not making geeky films.
IFC has released the first trailer for his next film called Match, in which he plays an aging ballet instructor in New York City who is hired to work at Julliard. He is “interviewed by a woman and her husband for her dissertation on the history of dance in 1960's New York. It becomes increasingly clear they're prying into his sordid past in this explosive drama of sex, secrets, and lies.”

Today we have a trailer for the upcoming "Match" drama, starring Patrick Stewart (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Carla Gugino and Matthew Lillard. Check it out below. Plot: As a Juilliard professor is interviewed by a woman and her husband for her dissertation on the history of dance in 1960's New York, it becomes increasingly clear that there are ulterior motives to the couple's visit. The new movie is written and directed by Stephen Belber (Management) and is set to hit select theaters on January 14th, 2015. Trailer: »
While Star Trek: The Next Generation and The X-Men franchise are both greatly enjoyable enterprises, it is easy to lose sight of the fact that Patrick Stewart is a world class performer. While those giant projects allow him to get a little lost in the shuffle, it takes a smaller, more intimate movie to remind us that this actor is really quite remarkable. Thankfully, Stewart has recently been obliging us with a few such projects, and the trailer for one of them – Match – has just been released.
Written and directed by Stephen Belber, Match is the filmmaker’s second time at the helm, following 2008’s Management, starring Steve Zahn and Jennifer Aniston. Match, however, seems to owe a lot to Belber’s first screenplay – 2001’s Tape – which he adapted from his own play.

Patrick Stewart may be best known for his big franchise roles, starring as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the Star Trek universe and playing Professor X in the X-Men movies, but every once in a while it's nice to see him step away for something smaller. Case in point, we have the first trailer for Match: The sophomore feature from writer/director Stephen Belber, best known for making the 2008 Jennifer Aniston/Steve Zahn dramedy Management, Match stars Patrick Stewart as Tobi Powell, an acclaimed choreographer and Julliard professor. He is approached by a woman (Carla Gugino) and her husband (Matthew Lillard) about doing an interview for a dissertation being written about dance in 1960s New York, and he gladly agrees. As we see unfold in the trailer, however, the couple actually has ulterior motives, and slowly the truth begins to expose itself. Match first premiered at the Tribeca Film »
Everyone remembers Patrick Stewart had one very big movie out this year, but he also had a much smaller one making the festival rounds. Directed by Stephen Belber, Match stars Stewart as a Juilliard ballet instructor forced to reflect upon his life when he’s interviewed by a married couple (Carla Gugino and Matthew Lillard) with […]

"You are very different than anyone I have ever met." IFC Films has debuted a brand new trailer for a film called Match, starring Patrick Stewart as an aging ballet instructor in New York City who takes up a job at Julliard. He's interviewed by a woman and her husband about dance in the 1960's, but he soon learns there's much more to her connection to him. Carla Gugino also stars, along with Matthew Lillard and Maduka Steady. This is based on a play, which makes sense considering Stewart's involvement, but more than anything it just looks like a heartwarming, life-affirming look at how to live in this wild world. Enjoy. Here's the first official trailer for Stephen Belber's Match, direct from IFC's YouTube: IFC Films presents Match, starring acclaimed actor Patrick Stewart as a Manhattan ballet instructor interviewed by a woman and her husband for her dissertation on »

Patrick Stewart has turned to the dark side.
Stewart offered his Twitter followers a first look at his new white supremacist character in “Green Room” — a far cry from his iconic characters of Captain Jean Luc Picard from “Star Trek” and Professor Charles Xavier from the “X-Men” franchise.
The photo shows the actor surrounded by other (more menacing-looking) Neo-Nazi skinheads, who he oversees as the leader of a fiefdom based in the Pacific Northwest.
The thriller centers around a punk rock band that ends up trapped in a secluded venue after witnessing a horrific act of violence. The band members eventually face off against Stewart and his gang of white power skinheads.
Bgp is producing and financing the film, which is set for release in 2015.

The compelling indie “Match," starring Patrick Stewart, Carla Gugino and Matthew Lillard screened at the Tribeca Film Festival this past fall. The cast alone is intriguing, especially since Lillard returned to form after “The Descendants.” Directed by playwright/filmmaker Stephen Belber (the pen behind "Tape" with Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman), the film centers on a Seattle woman and her husband (Gugino and Lillard) coming to New York to conduct an interview with a Juilliard ballet professor (Stewart) for her dissertation on the history of dance in the 1960s. But it becomes increasingly clear during these extensive inquiries that there are ulterior motives to the couple's visit. Here’s the official synopsis: Iconic actor Patrick Stewart gives one of his most emotional performances in this character driven drama playing high-spirited Tobias “Tobi” Powell, a master dance teacher at Julliard with a lifetime of »

Between his portrayal of Captain Jean Luc Picard and Professor X, and his fun frolics about New York and online, we've all come to love Patrick Stewart. But the actor takes a turn to the dark side with his latest role, which you can get a peak of below. First look at me as a very bad guy in Jeremy Saulnier's @greenroomfilm to be released by @BroadGreen next year. pic.twitter.com/10TNjUmmNW. Patrick Stewart (@SirPatStew) November 20, 2014 Green Room is a drama written and directed by Jeremy Saulnier, a cinematographer on the rise who broke through as a writer-director last year with his chilling thriller Blue Ruin. The film won praise as well as the Fipresci Prize at the illustrious Cannes Film Festival. And it seems it got Saulnier the kind of attention you need to pull together an impeccable cast. Along with Patrick Stewart, Green Room boasts appearances »
