“Who would you want to have sexual intercourse with, who would you want to marry, and then who would you want to kill out of the following three: Will Riker, Deanna Troi and Data?” Middleditch, who stars in HBO’s “Silicon Valley,” asks Stewart.
“Lord, this is a complicated question,” responds Stewart, a “F—, Marry, Kill” newbie.
“The kill would have to be Riker because he’s big and scary and very dominating,” says Stewart of his on-screen comrade. “For a wife I would choose Deanna, but just as a kind of one-night stand…I would choose Data because, well think about it.”
“There was an episode where he had to present his sexual equipment for discussion,” says Stewart, who played Captain Picard on the long-running sci-fi series. “Brent Spiner (who played the character of Data), who is a wonderful actor and a very funny man, used to say, ‘he’s fully functional, in fact he has three speeds.'”
Stewart currently plays titular character Walter Blunt in the Starz comedy “Blunt Talk.”
The new “Actors on Actors” season , presented by Shopbop and East Dane, covers one-on-one discussions between this year’s Emmy contenders, featuring an additional lineup that includes Kerry Washington, Aziz Ansari, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lady Gaga, Emilia Clarke, Aaron Paul and Jay Duplass, among many others.
PBS SoCal will premiere the segment in two episodes, one on June 12 and the other on June 19. It will also be available to stream on Variety.com.
