->''"Both me and [[Creator/EdgarWright Edgar]] are firm believers in never underestimating or talking down to an audience, and giving an audience something to do, to give them something which is entirely up to them to enter into the film and find these hidden things and whatever."''

He began as a TV actor and gained success for ''Series/{{Spaced}}'', which he co-wrote with Creator/JessicaHynes. He later collaborated with ''Spaced'' helmer Creator/EdgarWright and actor Creator/NickFrost on ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead'', ''Film/HotFuzz'' and ''Film/TheWorldsEnd''. Since then, Pegg has starred in a few films and was cast as Scotty in Creator/JJAbrams' [[Film/StarTrek reboot]] of ''Franchise/StarTrek''. He and Creator/DeepRoy are the only two actors who have played roles in all three of the juggernaut English-language SF franchises: ''Series/DoctorWho'', ''Franchise/StarWars'', and ''Star Trek''.

* 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.
