Secret Confession: I love Simon Pegg. I have loved him since I saw Shaun of the Dead. Loved him more once I watched, nay DEVOURED the brilliant show Spaced, and continued that love through Hot Fuzz and even the Mission Impossible movies. Hell, I even bought him as Scotty.
I am not quite sure what this movie is about. According to IMdB, this is the summary of the plot:
Jack is a children’s author turned crime novelist whose detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, persecuted by the irrational fear of being murdered. When Jack is thrown a life-line by his long-suffering agent and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in his script, what should be his big break rapidly turns into his big breakdown, as Jack is forced to confront his worst demons; among them his love life, his laundry and the origin of all fear.
Sure. Sounds plausible. But they forgot the super scary hedgehog and Pegg running around a lot in his underwear.
Either way, very very curious about this one.
Also, seriously, if you haven’t seen Spaced you are doing yourself a massive disservice. Here is the first episode to entice you…
Looks great, I always enjoy seeing a guy like Pegg out of his comfort zone and doing something different.
Absolutely! And I think one of the things that has made Pegg stand out for me is his total willingness to try anything. It might work or it might not, but he’s game.
