So, this is a thing that’s happening. Sir Patrick Stewart is going to be voicing the poop emoji in Sony Pictures Animation’s movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He joins T.J. Miller, Ilana Glazer, Maya Rudolph, James Corden, Steven Wright, Rob Riggle, and Jake T. Austin.
Stewart is best-known for his work in Star Trek: The Next Generation and its subsequent films and for playing Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men series. He’s also been knighted by the Queen, so the image of him playing poop is pretty funny. Twitter, of course, had lots of feelings:
Patrick Stewart is Poop.

I guess he was always #2 after all. Sir Patrick Stewart is the voice of the Poop Emoji in Sony’s THE EMOJI MOVIE. This is everything.
