Ladies and Gentlemen, Simon Pegg

Simon Pegg co-wrote and co-starred (as Tim Bisley) in the worldwide acclaimed, cult television show Spaced. After two groundbreaking seasons, he moved on to develop and co-write, with Edgar Wright, the critically praised Shaun of the Dead, starring as the eponymous hero, Shaun. The film has since been voted one of the Best British Comedies ever made by many, including Empire magazine and Channel 4.

After conquering zombies, award ceremonies and the USA, Pegg and Wright reprised their debut movie success with the smash-hit follow-up feature, Hot Fuzz, in which Pegg starred as über cop Nicholas Angel. Pegg then went on to star in the David Schwimmer-directed feature film, Run Fatboy Run, and as the anti-hero, Sidney Young, in How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, alongside Kirsten Dunst and Jeff Bridges.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost return to the screen together in their co-written feature film “Paul”, with a cast including Seth Rogan and Sigourney Weaver and other notable credits include Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tin Tin: The Secret of the Unicorn’; John Landis’ Burke & Hare, voicing ‘Reepicheep’ in The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and ‘Buck’ in Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. He was also seen boldly going in to the J.J. Abrams-directed Star Trek, playing the iconic role of Montgomery Scott (“Scotty”) and returned to play the role in the 2nd of the Star Trek films, earlier in 2012. Simon reprised his Mission: Impossible III role of Benji Dunn in the 2012 worldwide smash hit film, Mission: Impossible -Ghost Protocol, before starring in (and executive producing) the cult film, ‘A Fantastic Fear of Everything’. The forthcoming, eagerly anticipated, The World’s End feature (co-written with Edgar Wright) arrives in cinemas in the later half of 2013.

Simon’s debut book, ‘Nerd Do Well’ is published by Random House.
