LONDON---OK, what are U.S. Olympic swim star Ryan Lochte and Star Trek icon Patrick Stewart doing in a video together? It is strangely bizarre --- well, isn't that the point? -- yet it works. The good folks from "Funny or Die" put this sketch together , starring Stewart, front and center, as a grubby-faced con artist specializing in Olympic ticket scalping. Stewart: "This year I've got a plan to put me in the scalping history books. " Lochte appears, later, as the "victim," and incredibly, gets through his star turn and doesn't utter his favorite word, "Jeah!"

Arriving somewhat prematurely at 8 p.m.

Jean-Luc Picard on "Star Trek: The Next Generation," Patrick Stewart sat in the string section of the London Symphony and had what he remembers as "perhaps the most exciting theatrical experience" of his career.
