HOLLYWOOD (CNN) -- Actor Patrick Stewart of "Star Trek" fame goes from space to sea in his latest role, a TV miniseries adaptation of Herman Melville's classic, "Moby Dick."
Stewart, who says there is a "certain weight of responsibility" for a Brit taking on such a quintessentially American role as Captain Ahab, discussed the miniseries and his next foray on the Enterprise with CNN's Jim Moret.
