'''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''.

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."
