Simon Pegg, Hot Fuzz



Simon Pegg, currently the United Kingdom's most popular film comedian, has gotten to this pinnacle by writing his hit-making vehicles, beginning with an acclaimed BBC TV series and then 2004's sleeper hit, the zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead. With Hot Fuzz, the blond Pegg reteams with Shaun co-writer and director Edgar Wright and cherubically rotund co-star Nick Frost to send-up British bobbies and Jerry Bruckheimer movies. Pegg, godfather to Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter Apple, talks about where he's come from and where he's going (24 minutes).
