Last week’s episode of ‘The Graham Norton Show’ was enough to give any sci-fi geek a nerdgasm (okay, maybe just me) when Liam Neeson (Qui-Gon Jinn of ‘Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace’) and ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’s’ Captain Picard, Sir Patrick Stewart, were both guests on the talk show.
The entire episode was a laugh a minute as Stewart regaled the audience about the time he fell asleep in in the captain’s chair during the filming of an alien’s monologue that was to appear on the big view screen to how he became the poster boy for hair-challenged males. Neeson, not to be outdone, recorded an outgoing voice message with him reciting his infamous speech from the movie ‘Taken’ on an audience member’s phone who happened to have sent him his very first fan letter.
But the most hilarious part of the show was when Graham Norton brought out the Qui-Gon Jinn and Captain Picard action figures for a face off to decide who reigned supreme. Watch for yourself in this segment called “Battle of the Action Figures.”
