Patrick Stewart is in the midst of promoting Logan—which has been lauded by critics and audiences alike—but buzz is already swirling over his next role well before it comes out.

You see, he’s playing the poop emoji in The Emoji Movie, and he’s both honored and delighted for the opportunity. And it lands no matter how many times he’s said it.

“A lot of people have said for for years that Patrick Stewart’s acting is [shit],” he joked. “Now I’m gonna prove to them it’s true!”

It’s the mother lode of roles for Stewart, who described Poop as a “very upright, very proper, rather cultivated-sounding Englishman.” And chances are it’ll make a shitload of money.
