Just a few weeks ago we learned that Patrick Stewart would play a white supremacist in Green Room, the next film from Jeremy Saulnier, the indie director behind the fantastic thriller Blue Ruin (now available on Netflix Instant). Production is already underway on the film, and thankfully, Stewart was given the honor of debuting a first look at his character in the film, complete with his Neo Nazi gang. Honestly, he looks a little Heisenberg-esque with that sweater, beard and glasses, and that's pretty cool. No shots of Anton Yelchin and Imogen Poots yet, but surely we'll see them sometime down the road. Look below!
Here's the first look at Jeremy Saulnier's Green Room from Patrick Stewart on Twitter:

Green Room is written and directed by Jeremy Saulnier (of the indie thriller Blue Ruin). Anton Yelchin and Imogen Poots (both of Fright Night) play a young punk rock band who find themselves trapped in a secluded venue after stumbling upon a horrific act of violence, fighting for their lives against a gang of white power skinheads. Patrick Stewart also stars as Darcy Banker, the unflinching and industrial leader of a ferocious white supremacist fiefdom based in the Pacific Northwest. Alia Shawkat, Mark Webber and Macon Blair also star in the film which is shooting now, and will likely hit theaters sometime in 2015. Awesome?
