Patrick Stewart may go from the stage in Britain to Broadway, where he is reportedly in negotiations to star in a production of The Caretaker.
Stewart, who is currently enjoying wide visibility as Captain Picard on the recently released DVD of Star Trek: Nemesis and as Professor Xavier in the theatrical feature X2, is in discussions with the Roundabout Theatre Company to star in the Harold Pinter play, according to Playbill.
Director David Jones will reportedly direct the play, which shows the effects on the lives of two brothers when they become involved with a vagabond. Jones directed Pinter's No Man's Land for Roundabout in 1994, starring Jason Robards and Christopher Plummer (Chang, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country).
At present Stewart is working on a British production of Ibsen's The Master Builder. In recent years he also starred onstage in Arthur Miller's The Ride Down Mt. Morgan and in Shakespeare's Othello.
