That’s “Sir” Captain Picard

Admittedly, Mel Brooks first made him a King (Robin Hood: Men in Tights), but this is quite the honor nonetheless.

He has played kings, princes, captains and professors on stage and screen, but now actor Patrick Stewart will have a new title all his own: “Sir.”

The 69-year-old Yorkshire, England, native tops the list of those receiving New Year’s honors from Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, the Cabinet Office announced Thursday.

Stewart, well-known for playing Capt. Jean-Luc Picard on “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” will receive a knighthood. It means he will now be known in Britain as “Sir Patrick.”

Others earning the honor of being made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire include an Formula-1 driver/owner and a couple which owns an Italian cafe in London.

  • The first time I remember seeing him was in Excaliber. He also played Gurnee Hallek in Dune. I've seen him in many a movie and an occassional play since then. A most excellent actor.
