Patrick Stewart to Play Anchor Man in New Comedy
Sir Patrick Stewart will be taking on the role of an anchor-man in a new comedy from the creator of Family Guy.
The story revolves around a British journalist who becomes an anchor-man for a US news channel and has been co-created by Seth MacFarlane. Blunt Talk, according to Variety, is titled after main character Walter Blunt, played by Stewart.
It is not the first time Sir Patrick has teamed up with MacFarlane, who has used the actor to voice some characters in Family Guy and its sister show American Dad.
Sir Patrick, 73, who hails from Yorkshire, has spent the last few years filming the X-Men series in Hollywood. His character in Blunt Talk is expected to be a plain speaking and tough news man who has little time for the neuroses of those around him at the American TV station.
