Colin Farrell and Patrick Stewart had a hearty laugh while comparing their action figures during an interview with Late Late Show host James Corden.
The other stars giggled and laughed as they assessed the toys, and Farrell, 45, who portrays the penguin in superhero film The Batman, said he wasn’t impressed with the action figure he’s based on.
“The eyebrows are in the neighborhood,” said Colin when asked by Corden, 43, how he felt about his first action figure not looking like him.
“I look like I’m wearing a sumo thing. The step is all wrong. Far too much.”
When James Patrick produced Captain Picard’s action figure and compared it to Colin’s, the Irish actor described his action figure’s rear end as follows: “It’s very flat, it looks like I’ve been sitting here for 10 years.”
Patrick, 81, then asked, “Can you just turn me over?” which prompted Colin to describe the action figure Captain Picard’s behind as “cheeky.”
“It really is,” James said.
“I swear to you I didn’t know,” Patrick insisted, to which James replied, “Yes, you did! Look at that, it’s a firm peach.”
The actors also discussed space travel after William Shatner’s recent adventure with Patrick said he’d thought about it, adding, “I think I’d pass,” while Colin joked, “I’d pass out.”

When James asked Colin, who he said was a nervous aviator, what he would do if there was turbulence on a plane, Colin grabbed Patrick’s hand.
“You touched me,” Patrick exclaimed, raising his arms in the air when Colin asked him, “Have I broken protocol?”
Later in the interview, James showed the audience a photo of Colin as a penguin and asked if it was true that the first time he wore the makeup, no one recognized him when he walked into a Starbucks.
“Absolutely, and I ordered an oat milk latte and they seemed very surprised,” Colin confirmed, adding that some of the other actors didn’t recognize him either.
“Jeffrey Wright came over and I said ‘Good morning,’ and he looked at me like he was about to throw me off the set,” said Colin. “Then he went over and spoke to the director and the director pointed at him and came back and said, ‘Colin?’
Patrick also shared a story about how during the filming of the original Dune, everyone was talking about Sting being on set.
“One day I was sitting next to him and I said, ‘Sting, they say you’re a musician,’ and he said, ‘yup.’
“And I said, ‘What are you playing?’ He said “Bass”. I said, “I’ve always wanted to ask people why they choose to play this huge instrument. It stands up and you can’t sit down.
Patrick said Sting giggled and said, “No, not a double bass, but a bass guitar”. I said, ‘Really, that’s amazing, do you play in a band? He said ‘The police.’ And I said, ‘You play in a police band?’
