Patrick Stewart told the Cinema Confidential Web site that he won't be playing Star Trek: The Next Generation's Capt. Jean-Luc Picard again. "I don't think so," Stewart told the site. "I think The Next Generation is over with. I've probably said goodbye to Picard forever now."
The future of the franchise is in doubt, following the lukewarm reception to the last TNG movie, Star Trek Nemesis. Stewart still has another healthy franchise: He appears as Professor Charles Xavier in the upcoming X-Men sequel, X2, which opens May 2.
