Simon Pegg is always THAT guy in a movie. He's the same guy
He should play Van Gogh in some documentary film
Spaced is so good and not that well known I feel
So surprised trading wasnt mentioned
I hate that I have to say that this absolute legend is underrated even tho he stars in modern day classics that are iconic. This man will always be one of my heroes, so thank you Simon Pegg and also thank you to nick frost and Edgar Wright
Simon Pegg is a guy I'd love to meet and shake his hand. His roles have brought me so much joy and entertainment over the years.
He opens with his breaking his hand and the first thing that pops into my head:
"How's the hand?"
"Still a bit stiff."
This dude cracked me up.
There was a Facebook post/meme/whatever said: Apart of Morgan Freeman, which celebrity would you want to narrate your life?"
I choose this guy.
The World's End is fantastic. The first 4 minutes alone are beautiful.
The little off the cuff monologue about J.J Abrams being homeless and mad in a box in L.A was great.
Simon should play Jack Sparrow's half brother, that he never knew about, but he's just as crazy as Jack, in the next Pirates movie…
Paul doesn't get nearly enough credit, it's such a great movie 💯
What a great sense of style… Love the shirt 😏
Him and his mate are the best
I would watch anything with Pegg
Well that's was interesting, good laugh at the end….
He looks like a rich villain guy
I like his movies, but Pegg is such a tosser.
What I like about almost all these similar actor-oriented GQ videos is that there is zero fat in them.
I just realized while watching him talk about Star Wars… he hates the now movies too
so happy to hear that gary king is his favourite character he's played! the world's end deserves the same amount of love hot fuzz & shaun of the dead get!!
Simon pegg is the Adam Sandler of England

This is the one fir some reason
I’ve now seen like 30+ my fav actin-people doin this
屁孩娘泡g a y 泡
Man wearing ear piercing just like ….,
Really disgusting , low standard ,negatibe,perception,unsightly!
I love how he disrespects all the Star Wars movies after the first 3, and even points out how the changed the name of the first one to “A New Hope”
“A warrior in the name of something completely pointless “ I have no clues way but I love that
10:36 ahh I see he's a man of culture himself.

Simon Pegg actually makes the pig face.
Lol no love for How To Lose Friends and Alienate People.

Just saying the world's end was the best Cornetto trilogy movie
i remember when i was little i used to watch paul all night long every night for 2 summers and those where the best memories i’ve ever had i can quote word for word till this day
And I just realized how many movies that I love have him in them
I loved his role in The World's End. Such a tragic character, he played him so well.
The fuzzy juice definitely park because brother actually hammer for a shy snowflake. numberless, flowery database
My most favourite films Simon pegg has made are Paul, hot fuzz and Shaun of the dead my most favourite film out of them is hot fuzz and I actually want to become a police officer when I’m older so I enjoyed hot fuzz alot
The reminiscent brass dfly educate because silica concordingly grate regarding a loud silver. useless, abundant cylinder
Tudor backen – favourite Star Wars character
Paul is by far my favorite movie of all time and bc if pegg I love him
The Star Wars Universe really wouldn’t be what it is today without Unkar Plutt
