Patrick Stewart Gets Torched for the London Olympics

Patrick Stewart has boldly gone where a several have gone before...but it's still pretty damn cool!

"Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "X-Men" star Patrick Stewart took to the streets of south London on Monday as one of the bearers of the Olympic torch running up to the 2012 Olympic games."I didn't realize how much it meant until it started ... and saw the thousands of people on the streets and the sense of exhilaration that brought, and the evident pleasure in everyone who was witnessing it and feeling that they were sharing in something extraordinary," Stewart awed. "Which they are. I have the feeling that the spirit that we see exhibited here is going to grow and grow in the weeks ahead."
