"I don't think I should play Data anymore. I think I'm too old to play him anymore to be honest," he said. "I think it would look stupid putting that make-up on me at this point. There certain characters that I think work in a youthful way and I think I really skated along the edge in the last couple movies as it was."{@@@[email protected]@@}{@@@[email protected]@@}He joked: "Having said that, you'll see the movie now and there I'll be in all the make-up... then you'll know I got a very sweet deal."
