IMDb: Stewart Still Wanted Back on the Enterprise

Hollywood bosses are still trying to entice Star Trek actor Patrick Stewart to return to the Starship Enterprise - but he fears he will be too old by the time they come up with the goods. The 65-year-old star, who played Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the television series and later movies, insists the offers would be tempting, if only he were a little younger. He says, "Weighty people in Hollywood have come up with a very interesting proposition. But they told me it was still two, three or four years down the road, by which time I would only be able to sit in the captain's chair and not have the energy to get out of it!"

I don't know. 74-year-old William Shatner seems energetic.

If there's another Trek film, I really hope Stewart returns as Picard. Things just wouldn't be the same without him in the big chair telling the crew to "make it so." Besides, Riker can handle the rough and tumble stuff. He usually leads the away teams anyway.
