Patrick Stewart To Voice Poop in The Emoji Movie
Patrick Stewart is the shit.
Sir Patrick Stewart is one of the most celebrated actors in cinematic and theatre history who has shown time and time again that he is one of the all-time greats. His roles range from big-budget superhero films to small theatre productions to going boldly where no man has gone before. With that said, I’m both confused/excited to announce that he has officially been chosen to portray Poop in Sony Pictures Animation’s The Emoji Movie.
If you haven’t been keeping up, The Emoji Movie tells the story of Gene (TJ Miller), an Emoji born with multiple expressions, who embarks on a journey of self-discovery through a teenager’s phone alongside a character named Jailbreak (Ilana Glazer). While the premise isn’t enough to sell me on the fact that Sony actually went through with an Emoji movie, the addition of Patrick Stewart can’t help but excite my nerdy heart.
There’s sure to be several more surprise casting announcements in the months ahead for The Emoji Movie, so let’s hope the movie turns out worthy of its counterparts. Take a look below at the teaser for The Emoji Movie.
