Patrick Stewart As … Shakespeare Himself

Why not?  In Edward Bond’s Bingo : Scenes of Money and Death, William Shakespeare has “lost his writing mojo” and is living off the profit of his real estate deals.  A local landowner is trying to force him out, setting up a King Lear-esque “man who loses his kingdom” storyline (that’s from the article).

Captain Picard gets to play the man himself for a change.  He must be having a grand old time with it.
