* OneOfUs: Goes without saying; look at his list of credits, side projects and header image.
* 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 Star Trek.]]
** 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 ''Big Finish'' 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'', ''Hector and the Search for Happiness'').
** 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.
