->''"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."''

Simon Pegg (February 14, 1970-) is a British actor and comedian who has had breakout success in a wide range of movies.

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'' (and in the last-named one, Roy plays Pegg's sidekick).

Pegg is known for his quick-witted and sarcastic characters, and for often playing a slacker. He's quickly become a poster boy for nerd culture for many minor projects like a one-episode role in ''Series/DoctorWho'' and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5W8EBHNsLcepisode his two-man re-enactment]] of ''Franchise/StarWars Episode IV: Film/ANewHope''.

He admits that he hates being famous. He warns anybody seeking for fame that "It's like jumping into a pool full of sharks."
