Patrick Stewart Was 'a Fly on the Wall' at Jon Stewart and Rachel Maddow's Offices to Prep for Blunt Talk
To put it, well, bluntly – Patrick Stewart was born to play British journalist and TV personality Walter Blunt.
“I am obsessed with newspapers. My first job was working on one – politics and current affairs,” Stewart, 75, tells PEOPLE of his lead role in the new Starz comedy, Blunt Talk.
“I am fascinated by news anchors and presenters, how they can influence and inform opinion.”
