Simon Pegg

Simon Pegg was recently seen in John Landis' Burke & Hare and voiced the character Reepicheep in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. He was also seen boldly going in to the J.J. Abramsdirected Star Trek, playing the iconic role of Montgomery Scott (Scotty), and heard as one of the new lead voices in Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, playing Buck.

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 by many as one of the Best British Comedies ever made, 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 übercop Nicholas Angel.

Pegg went on to star in the David Schwimmer-directed feature film Run Fatboy Run, and as the antihero, Sidney Young, in How to Lose Friends & Alienate People, alongside Kirsten Dunst and Jeff Bridges.

Pegg is currently shooting Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol, in which he reprises his Mission: Impossible III character, Benji, and recently wrapped Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn.
