He’s one of Britain’s finest Shakespearian actors, and he’s also loved by Star Trek fans for his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard, but Patrick Stweart’s next role is a little… different to anything he’s ever done before.
He’ll play one of the most commonly used icons in the new film too – The poo emoji.
Stewart has played some of the most challenging roles in theatre, film and TV down the years, but this might be his toughest acting gig yet.
The film focuses on an emoji who’s miraculously born with the ability to show multiple emotions and icons. After discovering his unique talent, he jets off on a fun adventure around a teenager’s phone.
The Emoji Movie is due for release on August 3. A teaser trailer was previously released for the film, and was met with largely negative feedback online. Watch it below:
American Pie’s Jennifer Coolidge (of Stiffler’s mom fame), and Bridesmaids star Maya Rudolph will also voice characters in the movie.
As well as voicing the poo emoji, Stewart is also set to appear in the upcoming Wolverine movie Logan later this year.
