Impossbile. Picard is one of the few characters that I think is impossible to recast with a new actor.

Yes, Patrick Stewart was THAT good.
My thoughts exactly!

I'd really rather have another crew than yet another reboot.

I can't believe I forgot to suggest James McEvoy!

Picard will never be recast - the hard core fans would accept no substitute, and the general public would never be interested in a TNG reboot because ol' JL isn't a hip, swingin' brawler. Thank Zeus!

I suspect the same thing would have been said of Kirk a few years ago.

I meant play Picard as he appears in the ST:TNG series.
James McAvoy.... in 20 years.

And the most iconic Trek character of them all, Spock. Now played by Zachary Quinto.

Since Charles Xavier from the X-Men movies is basically Picard in a wheelchair with telepathy, and they replaced Patrick Stewart with James McAvoy in the prequel X-Men: First Class, I say the Picard character can definitely live on without Patrick Stewart.

Er, no: as a hip, swingin' brawler, who was always chasing after ladies and punching aliens in the face, Kirk had/has a lot more mainstream appeal than Picard, and that should have been as obvious a few years ago as it is today.

It's like asking the general public whether they'd prefer to see a "Young Han Solo" or a "Young(er) Luke Skywalker " movie. The former's gonna win a mainstream public poll by a mile, every time.

^

They changed Kirk a lot in ST09... why would you think they wouldn't change Picard to appeal to the public? They already tried turning Picard into an action hero in the TNG movies.

We know from Tapestry that the young JLP was a fairly hip swinging brawler, while the Picard of the movies made for a fairly convincing action man (something which was first seen on the small screen in Starship Mine). I don't think a reinvention of Picard a la Chris Pine's Kirk would have to be all that radical.
