* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Nick Frost.

to:

* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Nick Frost.DyeingForYourArt: Has dyed his hair red for ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead'', black for ''Film/TheWorldsEnd'' and is mostly seen with blond hair, but his real hair colour is actually light-brown.
* MismatchedEyes: He has sectoral heterochromia in real life; his eyes are blue-grey, but his right one is partially brown. He's said he's "slightly [[BuffySpeak mutanty]]."
* OneOfUs: A fair amount of his work consists of homages, references, or deconstructive parodies of things like [[Film/HotFuzz police action movies]] or [[ShaunOfTheDead zombie films]]. He's also a true student of filmmaking, including a university degree, on top of all the fanboy stuff.
* PlayingAgainstType:
** In ''Film/HotFuzz'', Pegg is much more of a straight man than his normal persona.
** In ''Film/MissionImpossibleGhostProtocol'', his comic [[TheLabRat lab-rat]] role in the previous film is upgraded to being in the field with the rest of the IMF team on the run, meaning he gets in on the gun-wielding action and even gets to pull the badass-with-sunglasses pose on the main poster alongside the more imposing Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner. He does opt out of helping Ethan Hunt with a physically demanding task at one point, quipping, "I'm on the computer."
* PromotedFanboy:
** His role in ''Film/StarTrek''.
** On his sudden fame after ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead'': "Well, it's not like I'm going to go do ''Mission: Impossible III!''"
** He apparently put aside his vitriol for the [[Franchise/StarWars Prequels]] in order to play an Original Trilogy character, Dengar, on ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars''.
*** He then gets to play a character in the new Star Wars trilogy, Unkar Plutt, the junk dealer on Jakku.
** Voicing [[ComicBook/StrontiumDog Johnny Alpha]] on the ''Creator/BigFinish'' audio adaptations.
** He and his daughter are huge fans of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'', and tweeting an obscure reference from the show got him cast in an episode. Didn't hurt that co-creator Jeff "Swampy" Marsh is a huge fan of ''Spaced''.
*** Considering that he did Star Wars films many times, it made sense that they'd cast him for the Star Wars crossover episode.
* ThoseTwoActors: He seems to get along with a great deal of actors.
** Creator/NickFrost (Film/BloodAndIceCreamTrilogy, ''Film/{{Paul}}'', ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTintin''). In ''WesternAnimation/IceAge'' they both participated but in different sequels of the franchise.
** Creator/RosamundPike (''Film/TheWorldsEnd'', ''Film/HectorAndTheSearchForHappiness'').
** Creator/AndySerkis (''Film/BurkeAndHare'', ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTintin'', ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/TheForceAwakens'').
** David Schwimmer (''Series/BandOfBrothers'', ''Film/BigNothing''). In ''Film/{{Run Fatboy Run}}'' while Schwimmer did not act, he directed Pegg in it.
* TypeCasting
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Reportedly, he was supposed to play Pete Tyler on ''Series/DoctorWho'', but scheduling got in the way, and he ended up playing the Editor of Satellite Five instead.
* WrittenByCastMember: He co-wrote ''Series/{{Spaced}}'', ''Film/BloodAndIceCreamTrilogy'', ''Film/RunFatboyRun'', ''Film/{{Paul}}'', and ''Film/StarTrekBeyond''.
