Hugh Jackman's clawed hero Wolverine has the unenviable task of traveling back in time to try to save the world in Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past," and the final trailer finds him following in the grand movie tradition of assembling his team. His first recruit in the film, which unites the casts of the original "X-Men" trilogy with the 1960s-set prequel "X-Men: First Class," is none other than a young Professor Xavier (James McAvoy). As the trailer makes clear, the telepathic professor and his school for mutants have both seen better days.

This week's episode of  Cosmos  paid tribute to the mind-bending science behind some of the most popular tropes in science fiction, so it's only fitting that it also featured a special cameo by none other than Patrick Stewart. Stewart is best known to his legion of fans as  Star Trek 's Captain Jean-Luc Picard. (That high-pitched sound you hear is a collective “squee!” from my fellow geekerati.) Stewart voices astronomer William Herschel in an animated sequence set in 1802, as Herschel walks along the beach at night with his young son, John.

It turns out we can thank Patrick Stewart's wife for the seemingly unending stream of joy that comes from the "X-Men" star's Twitter feed. The actor appeared on "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" on Thursday and Jon couldn't wait to show the photo Patrick posted around Halloween time showing the former "Star Trek" star in a full lobster costume reclining in a bathtub. It turns out the costume was purchased by Patrick's wife, jazz singer Sunny Ozell. And it was definitely presented to him against his wishes.

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!"

Charles Dickens' 1843 morality story, "A Christmas Carol," is the Yule season's most engaging and enduring contemporary literary tradition. Its unabashedly sentimental message of redemption and charity is timeless and universal, its tone somehow in conflict with the shrilly jingling cash registers that many retailers depend on for survival. Arriving somewhat prematurely at 8 p.m.

A decade before he took the role of Capt. 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. That was when the British actor appeared in the world premiere of "Every Good Boy Deserves Favour," the 1977 Tom Stoppard-Andre Previn theatrical-musical hybrid that places a full orchestra on stage to interact with a cast of six.
