You know him for his role as the fearless Captain Jean Luc Picard in Star Trek. Others my know him as the guiding Professor X in the X-men franchise. Throughout the years we have looked at actor Patrick Stewart as a person to look up to due to his character portrayals. But the actor has decided to take a turn to the dark side in his latest role

Directed by Jeremy Saulnier, Green Room centers around a young punk band that is  trapped in a remote venue after witnessing a heinous act of violence, and of course they are not alone. They band will have to come together to survive as they fight off a gang of white power skinheads. Enter Patrick Stewart. Sources have reported that Stewart has taken the role of the leader for the Neo-Nazi’s.

This is a completely left turn toward Stewarts usual film selection. I am intrigued to see how the actor will approach this role. I was recently opened the variety that Stewart can deliver when I learned he was the narrator for Seth McFarlane’s Ted. So I have no doubt that this legendary actor can pull off this role.

Green Room will look to appear first at the Cannes Film Festival. Sadly for us we won’t get to see the film until sometime in the late spring, and most likely in selected theaters. Until then you can look for more information on Stewart;s twitter page as he will keep you up to date on the film.
