Sir Patrick just can’t get enough of the Nerdist Podcast! The beloved Star Trek and X-Men actor stopped by for his third appearance on the show in between shooting the second season of his Starz series, Blunt Talk, and the release of his critically acclaimed new film, Green Room. From director Jeremy Saulnier, Green Room is an intense genre thriller about a punk band who witnesses a murder and has to go toe to toe against a gang of white supremacists. Sir Patrick shared how scared he was when he first read the script, and why he signed onto such a project.
Amidst discussing new projects and sharing the inspiration behind his charity work with Refuge and Combat Stress, Sir Patrick also dropped some very exciting news… This year, he will be selling off his archived scripts from Star Trek: The Next Generation! Over the years, he’s kept the shooting scripts, drafts, rewrite pages, and call sheets for every episode, so there will be a plethora of riches out there for some die-hard Star Trek fans. (That sound you hear is the sound Matt Mira’s head exploding with excitement.) No date is set yet, but he’s aiming to start the culling sometime in June. Plus, Sir Patrick has an insane story about his battle to get one of his original Captain Jean-Luc Picard uniforms and an unlikely alley.
Green Room is out in limited release April 15 and goes wide April 29, 2016.
