WATCH: What if Patrick Stewart played Shinzon in Nemesis?

With the debut of Star Trek: Picard right around the corner, many of us are looking back at Patrick Stewart‘s history with the character. Following seven seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Stewart continued to play Captain Jean-Luc Picard in four feature films—including for the final time, in 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis. In that film, Picard comes face-to-face the Romulan-created clone of himself, Shinzon, played by Tom Hardy. In a new “deepfake” video, which utilizes machine learning AI technology, Youtuber Deep Homage replaces Hardy’s face with Stewart’s in what can be described as an interesting look at how the dynamic may have played out on screen, if Picard’s younger clone looked more like he does.

Check out the video below and let us know what you think. Do you think Patrick Stewart should’ve played Shinzon? Does Hardy’s voice matched up with Stewart’s face weird you out as it does us? Tell us in the comments section below.

Star Trek: Picard is slated to premiere in early 2020 and will see Patrick Stewart return to the role of Jean-Luc Picard, alongside Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway, Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd and Evan Evagora. It is being produced by Stewart himself along with Alex Kurtzman, James Duff, Akiva Goldsman, Michael Chabon, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry, Trevor Roth and Aaron Baiers.
