This is hilarious.
It has been revealed that Sir Patrick Stewart is set to play the poop emoji in upcoming animated adventure 'The Emoji Movie'.
The award-winning actor and highly-acclaimed thespian will star alongside comedians James Corden and T.J. Miller, as well as 'Broad City' actress Ilana Glazer in the Sony Pictures-produced movie.
The film will center on Miller’s character Gene, an emoji born with multiple expressions who sets out on an adventure through a teenager's phone.
Joining the cast are 'American Pie' actress Jennifer Coolidge and 'Bridesmaids' star Maya Rudolph, who will also voice characters in the film.
A teaser trailer was released for the film at the end of last year, featuring a line voiced by the 76-year-old British actor.
In addition to 'The Emoji Movie', Stewart's other upcoming projects include a starring role in the new Wolverine movie 'Logan' as well as more voice acting work in the animated adventure 'Spark'.
