Patrick Stewart, Star Trek's Captain Jean-Luc Picard, is in the news with two very, very different projects. First, he narrates the new documentary The Connected Universe, which premiered on September 26 at the Directors Guild of America. Directed by Malcolm Carter, The Connected Universe, according to The Hollywood Reporter, "explores the work of Nassim Haramein, a physicist and founder of the Resonance Science Foundation, who has been pursuing a unified theory of physics."

Additionally, Stewart and Ian McKellen, his longtime friend and frequent co-star, just reunited for a West End production of the play No Man's Land, the Harold Pinter comedy-drama that they'd previously performed on Broadway. After a recent, short UK tour with the show, Stewart and McKellen on September 19 celebrated the opening night of an extended run at the Wyndham Theatre in London. No Man's Land will play there until December 17. For tickets, go to
